Canon EOS 30D 8.2MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only)

  • I ordered my Canon 30D camera body from Amazon through another vendor. When I opened the box I noticed the manuals\' plastic bag was torn in the middle and the camera\'s mirror had dust spots. I was a bit worried about whether it was a returned item. However, I cleaned the dust away with my blow brush and have taken several hundred test shots.The camera works fine and I am happy that I have bought it. Initially, though, it was not my choice. Since I already owned several cameras and lenses of Canon, Nikon and Mamiya, I knew I would choose a DSLR camera body between a Canon and Nikon model so that I could use my old but great lenses. I was leaning using my Nikkor lenses, so after some research, I decided to buy Nikon D80--its large and bright view finder was a major attraction to me for I do like to take photos through the view finder rather than a live screen.But before I ordered it, I went to the stores to have a look at the camera. My impression of the Nikon D80 body was not good. It looked small and a bit cheap feeling. I just didn\'t like the design and the feeling of it while holding it. And it\'s not made in Japan. The Canon models are. Somehow I more trust in cameras that are made in Japan. But Canon Rebels are too small and light. Even though I have rather small hands, I still like a more solid and a bit more weighty camera body. The newly launched Canon 40D looked nice, but I wasn\'t inclined to buy a camera that\'s just come to the market. So, leaving the stores it seemed I still didn\'t have a camera to buy. After I did a bit more research, I found Canon 30D was right for me, so without actually seeing the actual camera, which was not available at the stores, I ordered it believing a predecessor of 40D must also be made in Japan. And it is. It looks and works great with its well designed features.Ever since I moved three years ago, I have lost the access to the great darkrooms of a college where I enrolled in a darkroom class for five years just to use the facilities--I had such an incredible time processing, printing and enlarging my own color and b&w photographs that when the digital wave came I was rather skeptical and considered using computers and printers was rather mechanical and not romantic or artistic at all, but I guess that prejudice has left me now and with Canon 30D, I found my passion for photo making has come back to me, it\'s great fun to switch between color and b&w using one camera, and it is no less fun to crop and alter contrast to instantly create impressive pictures. One suggestion, for general color photography, avoid shooting in the sunlight, always using the open shadow or shooting in a cloudy day. That way you don\'t need a hood, even with a hood, you won\'t get the best colors in the sun. And I don\'t like to use filters either. But I highly recommend Canon 30D, it\'s not the most \"professional\" camera, but an ultra expensive camera doesn\'t mean it will bring you great photos, which can only be got through good eyes and some impromptu moments, and of course, practice. Have fun!
  • As the title says, if you can afford this, do it -- and this is coming from a Digital Rebel XT/EOS 350D owner.I love digital cameras.But I hate configuring them. For example, I\'ve got a Sony T33 credit card camera that because of its small size, I\'ve got to fiddle with the dumb menu. I\'m farsighted, which means I need my glasses to see the menu, and ... arrgh.I own the Digital Rebel XT/350D and like many things about it, but I have never liked having to play around with it to configure the manual settings. And that\'s a real drawback, because I think you\'ll find that once you own a DSLR like one of the Canons or Nikons then you won\'t be shooting \"automatic\" all that much. But searching through the menus and trying to puzzle out what combination of button presses sets the ISO to 1600 so you can get those fireworks shots just ain\'t no fun.Get ahold of a 20D or 30D and spend 20 minutes with the manual, just once. The overall idea of the control layout will make you smile, and throw away the manual. Honest.Of course, that\'s not the only benefit of the 30D. For one thing, PictureStyles makes more sense to ME, anyway, than does the more common approach to exposure presets. The significantly larger LCD makes reviewing shots actually possible on the LCD, and the bigger LCD means bigger text -- better for us farsighted guys. I do wildlife pictures and portraits where it\'s great to motor-drive 20 or 30 shots at a go, and the 30D supports that. And I grew up with hand-held spot metering, so its return in the 30D is wonderful.However, if you ARE thinking of upgrading from a 350D, be aware of a few things. First, you\'ve got to re-buy your wired and wireless remote controls at outrageous prices. All of the power stuff, including the AC adapter, your batteries, any battery chargers and the 350D\'s battery handle will require new purchases.One more thing that is a bit annoying: despite the fact that Microsoft has announced that 32 bit\'s on the way out, the four included photo applications run badly or not at all on my copy of XP x64 edition. There are workarounds, of course, but it\'s blasted annoying.Whether you stay with a current camera or upgrade, I wish you the best of luck with your digital photography. Even with the worst on-board menus, it still beats developing negatives in the closet!
  • Got this honestly as a super-duper version of a much needed \"point\'n shoot\" to take good reference shots for my paintings and drawings. However, now I\'m getting picky about the great shots I\'m taking now. Wow, some real \"winners\" coming out! The reasons I give it 3 stars is that it came packed in bubble wrap with no lens opening cover and the sensor came full of dirt specks which show up on anything taken over F9. F22 makes a clear blue sky look like a hundred gnats flew in the picture frame. So, another 60 bucks at the local camera shop to get it cleaned is in order. The other thing is, the pop up flash doesn\'t work at\'s frozen shut. But, hey, I guess for an eight year old camera that used to sell for 1500\'s not half bad.
