When I first read about the new EOS 30D by Canon Inc., I didn’t really pay attention as it costs $1400. I did notice it though, because it features an 8.2MP CMOS sensor, amazing .15 second start up time, and a sizable 2.5″ LCD. The thing that really caught my eye though, on closer inspection, is that this camera is fully compatible with all EF and EF-S Lenses, and all EOS accessories. In other words, let me paint this pretty picture for you: all those really fancy EF lenses and stuff for your SLR will work with this digital. You can save hundreds or thousands of dollars by not having to re-buy it all.

Other nice things on here are its CF/Microdrive compatibility, a 100 to 3200 ISO range, 5-frame-per-second & 30-large-JPEG-frame burst, and USB 2.0 to top it off. This really is the kind of device you buy and you are done with… for a few years

A graduate of Colgate University, Bruce is one of the elite Henro or pilgrims who have completed the 900 mile 88 Temple Pilgrimage on the island of Shikoku, Japan by means of foot power, a feat (no pun intended.... ok maybe alittle) which is no laughing matter. He not only finished this task with a crippling leg injury but he has attained enlightenment according to the monks on Koyasan. Currently the 23 year old is living in San Antonio where he spends his time working as a Data Analyst but also trying to accomplish his next great challenge, drinking all 200 beers at the Flying Saucer. Having recently married his long time friend from college and seen as nuts for doing so, Bruce relishes his life and hot dogs generously. KANPAI!!


  1. So someone must be living under a log, because the Canon 20D and both digital Rebels also allow you to use all your EF and EF-S lenses. That’s nothing new.

  2. the 20D isnt full frame magnifies an ef lens by 1.6. the 1D and 5D have full frame have it. the 5d cost 3000 somthing dollars where as the 30D cost 1400.
