Designed to inspire. Built to last.
With 8.2 Megapixel resolution, the EOS 30D’s CMOS sensor records each image with enough clarity for detailed A3+ enlargements and creative cropping.
Canon&rsquos CMOS sensor technology offers several advantages over traditional CCD sensors. Low–noise performance means that even at high ISO speeds resolution and quality are not compromised. On–chip circuitry reduces remaining fixed pattern and random noise to enable shooting at speeds as high as ISO 3200 (equivalent). A low–pass filter in front of the sensor suppresses the false colour and moiré that can affect high–resolution digital photography.
Large pixels on the EOS 30D’s CMOS sensor allow for a wide dynamic range, so that images retain greater contrast and detail in shadow and highlight areas. The 22.5×15mm sensor size adds an effective 1.6× increase to the focal length of EF lenses, for extended reach on telephoto shots.
5 fps shooting
The camera delivers fast 5 fps shooting for continuous bursts of up to 30 large JPEG images (11 in RAW). A new 3 fps shooting mode provides greater control for variable–speed sequences.
Illuminated by 6 LEDs, the bright 2.5” 230K pixel LCD is viewable from 85° in almost all directions.
The EOS 30D can record each image as either a RAW image, JPEG image, or both simultaneously.
Like a digital negative, RAW images contain all the unprocessed data from the camera’s sensor. Recorded at 12 bits per pixel, RAW images provide the maximum post processing flexibility. For RAW image handling, Digital Photo Professional software is provided.
JPEG images have compression and Picture Style processing applied and are designed to be more usable straight out of the camera. Depending on the desired image size, different levels of compression (Fine or Normal) can be applied.
Picture Style pre–sets provide easy control over image processing parameters. Each style offers a different colour response – similar to the way film types are changed to achieve different effects. Sharpness, contrast, colour tone and saturation are adjustable within each preset.
Spot metering allows you to base the optimal exposure value on a concentrated spot (3.5%) in the scene – useful in high-contrast scenes where precise metering control is required.
High precision 9–point wide–area AF
Select from one of nine fixed focusing points across the scene for fast, accurate focusing even with off–centre subjects and ‘rule–of–thirds’ compositions.
A split second can make all the difference between a great photo and a missed opportunity. The EOS 30D is ready for shooting 0.15 seconds after you switch it on so you’ll never miss a moment again.
DIGIC II renders colours with precision and accuracy. Fast and efficient, DIGIC II prolongs battery life* and delivers instant 0.15 second start up time.
Digital Photo Professional software
The Digital Photo Professional software permits high-speed processing of lossless RAW images.
Magnesium alloy body
A compact magnesium alloy body provides durability while keeping the camera's weight down to 700 grams.
EF lenses and accessories
The EOS 30D is compatible with over 60 EF lenses (including the EF–S Series) and all EX Series Speedlite flash units. The E–TTL II flash algorithm passes key shooting data from compatible EF lenses – such as focal length, point of focus and distance information – to the Speedlites for consistently accurate flash exposures. Untethered shooting is possible with the optional Wireless File Transmitter WFT–E1.
Video Out allows reviewing on a TV screen. Connect with USB 2.0 Hi–speed for fast data transfers.
*750 shots per battery charge, according to CIPA standard testing.

Are you eligible for finance?
Applicants must be:
- Aged 18 years or older from the application date
- In permanent UK residence for a minimum of three years
- Fulfil at least one of the following employment criteria:
- In regular, permanent employment.
- Retired from regular employment - With a minimum age of 50.
- Not working through disability.
Note: All applicants will be subject to a credit reference check by the lender.
The approval of your application depends on your financial circumstances and borrowing history. Warehouse Express Ltd trading as Wex Photo Video act as credit broker and not the lender. Barclays Partner Finance act as the lender.
Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan. You will also receive reminder letters and text at the end of the deferral period to remind you when your first payment is due.
