Professional-level features make customization a breeze
"Picture Style" settings
The EOS 30D incorporates Canon's Picture Style settings, which simulate the characteristics of different film styles, allowing photographers to customize their shooting to their personal taste or needs. These include Standard, for punchy, print-from-the-camera color, Portrait, for softer, more natural skin tones, Landscape, for vivid blues and greens and overall sharpness, and Neutral, Faithful and Monochrome, which can be customized to emulate color filters with black and white film.
Strong and durable
The EOS 30D has a solid, substantial feel that complements its compact dimensions. The camera body is constructed of magnesium-alloy, known for its lightweight and ultra-rigid strength. It has an improved high-speed and durable shutter unit, designed to perform flawlessly and reaching a top shutter speed of 1/8000 second with a remarkable 100,000-cycle shutter life.
At the request of many users, the EOS 30D adds a spot metering function that meters roughly 3.5% of the center of the image. This new metering function, in addition to Canon's impressive evaluative, center-weighted average and partial metering modes, gives the photographer even more choices for custom-tailored shooting.
