Canon EOS 30D – Review @ DCRP

Jeff Keller has reviewed the Canon EOS 30D, a digital SLR camera with 8.2 Megapixel (CMOS), 5 fps frame rate, 9-point autofocus, spot metering and 2.5 inch LCD screen.


“The EOS-30D did a great job of controlling noise all the way through ISO 400. In the ISO 800 shot we start to see some minor detail loss, and it gets a bit worse at ISO 1600, but the shot is still very usable with a little cleanup. Heck, even the ISO 3200 shot could be turned into an acceptable 4 x 6 inch print with a little post-processing in NeatImage or Noise Ninja.

Photo quality was excellent on this 8.2 Megapixel camera. Photos were well-exposed, with accurate colors, very low noise levels (even at high ISO sensitivities), and minimal purple fringing. As is the case with most D-SLRs, photos are on the soft side straight out of the camera, and you can compensate for this by increasing the in-camera sharpening a bit. One thing that really got nailed home during my time with the 30D is how important lens quality is. I bought the Canon 17 – 85 EF-S lens a few months back, and have been less than thrilled with its sharpness — and you’ll see the results in the photo gallery. Slap on some better glass and you’ll get much sharper photos, as the photos taken with my 50 mm lens attest.”
