Direct printing with PictBridge compatible printers
PictBridge-advanced camera direct capabilities
The EOS 30D lets you print beautiful photos with minimum time and effort - directly from the camera. It's compatible with Canon's SELPHY Compact Photo Printers, desktop PIXMA Photo Printers, and even third-party PictBridge-compatible printers.
The EOS 30D comes bundled with the Canon EOS Digital Solution Disk (Version 12.0) , which features powerful software programs designed to extend the EOS experience to the computer. These include Canon's ZoomBrowser EX for Windows® (Version 5.6), ImageBrower for Macintosh® OS X (Version 5.6), or Digital Photo Professional (Version 2.1), Canon's EOS Utility (Version 1.0) and PhotoStitch (Version 3.1). Each application is designed to perfect captured images, and streamline the digital workflow.
Digital Photo Professional (Version 2.1) provides easy-to-use RAW conversion tools, including high-speed RAW image processing, high-speed previewing for real-time image adjustment and support for sRGB, Adobe RGB and Wide Gamut RGB color spaces. Since it's CMS (Color Management System) compatible, Digital Photo Professional allows for easy image layout and printing in Adobe RGB in conjunction with Easy-PhotoPrint and PictBridge printers.
Canon's new EOS Utility software (ver.1.0) for Macintosh or Windows handles the connection between the camera and computer, whenever they're connected via USB. It allows remote controlled shooting from the computer, handles downloading of images from the camera to the computer, and allows seamless linking to either Canon's ZoomBrowser/ImageBrowser or Digital Photo Professional software once images have been copied to the hard drive. Furthermore, it's used to upload settings back into a USB-connected camera, from Picture Style files to the user-named file. There's also a new folder monitor - ideal to check and display images being transmitted by the optional WFT-E1A wireless transmitter.
Canon's ZoomBrowser EX for Windows and ImageBrowser for Mac OS X are the easy, user-friendly options for viewing and editing of JPEG and even RAW image files. Both allow viewing of numerous types of images including finished TIFF and BMP files. Both also have a variety of search options for finding images, allow re-naming of single images or batches of files, and offer a variety of options for printing without using a separate image-editing program.
