Product Information : Canon EOS D30

Manufacturer's product description

Canon's cutting-edge technology has provided you with a high-end digital camera at a friendlier price. Combining Canon's razor-sharp optics and CMOS technology, EOS D30 will get you 3.11 megapixels and great-looking images every time. High resolution and outstanding color reproduction are made possible by a Canon's proprietary large-area CMOS sensor, an RGB color filter, and a newly designed digital imaging processing LSI. The camera also incorporates the same mode settings and dial operations found in existing EOS system cameras. Specific to the digital camera functions have been added to the LCD panel, including recording format and white balance. The 1.8-inch LCD color monitor on the back panel provides viewing and confirming images, as well as screens for 13 types of custom functions and a variety of camera settings including shutter speeds, aperture, and exposure. The menu screen simplifies display settings by using color codes for the imaging system (red), playback system (blue) and set-up system (yellow). EOS D30 has a newly designed image-processing engine and high-capacity buffer memory, enabling it to shoot up to 8 frames in a continuous sequence at approx. 3 frames per second when the Drive mode is set to Continuous. EOS D30 can easily capture highly active photography such as sports or photojournalism, in the same way with the conventional film SLR camera. Making its debut in the EOS series, the retractable E-TTL autoflash provides the best light for the worst conditions. EOS D30 supports USB and NTSC/PAL video out for instant access to your digital images, providing high-speed Plug and Play data transfer. Life is full of surprises. Getting ready to shoot takes just a flick of the finger. So, you'll never miss an opportunity to get the shot of a lifetime. And you'll always be ready for the next shot with the EOS D30's Continuous shooting mode. EOS D30 features compact, yet durable and elegant body. It's easy to use, easy to handle, and easy on the eyes. D30 has beauty and brawn. A dark, sleek exterior fortified by a durable chassis - not to mention the smallest and lightest of its kind. The chassis, a skeleton of the camera, is made of special stainless steel alloy to ensure high rigidity, and the exterior is made of strong, light engineering plastic. This compact, durable camera body defies the common impression that digital SLR cameras have to be large and heavy. D30 can host the enormous repertoire of Canon EF lenses. So, keep adding to your collection, because with the accessories, one size fits all! Canon has made the D30 compatible with a wide range of EOS system series accessories (and has even added some new ones).
