Key feature changes over the 20D:

* Redesigned body (more EOS 5D like)
* Larger LCD monitor (2.5")
* Soft-touch shutter release button
* AE/AF lock remains set if shutter is kept half-pressed between shots
* Faster startup and wake from sleep times
* Direct print button on rear of camera (woo!)
* Spot metering
* 100,000 shot shutter cycle
* ISO selectable in third stop steps
* ISO speed shown in viewfinder as you change it
* Selectable 5 or 3 fps continuous shooting
* PictureStyles instead of simple image parameters
* 9,999 images per folder (instead of 100 as per the EOS 20D)
* 15 menu languages (3 new)

Selling for (estimated) EOS 30D body only 1,399

Still the same Megapixel count tho, 8.2MP

Do you have any references/link for this?

hrmm...not what I expected. I expected something that would compete with the d200.
02/21/2006 07:55:41 AM · #4
press release

Wow. For me at least, not worth waiting for. But at least the price of the 20D will go down...

I'm breathing a sigh of relief... Sony/Minolta can take a little while longer now coming up with a rival camera.

yup ... i agree

Actually, the price point on the 30D will be less than the 20D...

Per the article.
02/21/2006 08:32:26 AM · #9
It's only saying the price will be less than when the 20d was released. The 20d will sell for less than the 30d now.

Opps... wrong ones ;-)

Question is ... Is Photoshop CS2 going to support this camera in RAW or do you have to go to a new version which adobe hasn't release yet. I know that with the 350D you had to go to CS2 because CS didn't support it and it's almost that time when Adobe should be coming out with a new version... hope they support this in CS2 ... not another upgrade!!!!

PS: did anyone notice this new lens also ... oh yeah Canon EF-S 17 - 55 mm F2.8 IS lens, just a few things from Canon today :-)

Saw a good point in a Dpreview.com forum. They should have called it 20D-n. Not really a new camera, in my opinion. At least I won't be tempted to upgrade. Still some nice improvements.
02/21/2006 08:53:12 AM · #13
The price point is well below what I expected. Why would you buy a new 20D now when $300 more will get the 30? I think I'll skip that one all together and start saving up for my Mark2 (in a year or so).

The 85mm 1.2 sounds nice!

Ummmm.........those are links to the D30(circa 2000), not the new 30D.

Not always.

Periodically the manufacturers do not make those types of downward price adjustments. It's rare, but it does happen. What catches my interest is that none of the typical industry "tells" happened.

So I'm going to be interested to see what happens.

wow looks like my next canon, I need another camera to I'll have two in case one dies and I think from what I read this looks like a winner.
02/21/2006 09:05:49 AM · #17
The link for the 30D (NOT THE d30) can be found here.
02/21/2006 09:14:10 AM · #18
Hmmm.....been waiting on this because I'm considering an upgrade from my 300D! It looks quite nice. Can't wait to go and try one out!
02/21/2006 09:43:24 AM · #19
Hmmm...not exaclty what the rumour mills had leaked, so perhaps there is yet another camera awaiting announcement?

20D is currently about 1150 at b&h, and the 30D is MSRP at $1399, so figure $1299 in a month or so as a rela world price. For $150 yeah, I'll take the newer camera.

I am somewhat disappointed as i was hoping for 10mp and teh 5D AF system, but the price is a very good thing, i was expecting $1500 to 1600.

The folder size up to 9999 pics is gonna be realy handy. the 1D mk2 has that. Bigger LCD is nice, 750 shots on the same batteries I have now is great too! Improved shutter/flash life is also a bonus.

So, when and where can I order it?
02/21/2006 09:44:31 AM · #20
Give ti 72 hours max. All the major online retailers will prolly have pre-orders up for it.

Cool. Cna i have it by saturday? LOL I have a wedding to shoot...but then with a new camera i'd prolly screw it all up ;)

Not sure, but a friend has a 1D mk2, 8.5fps, and he can burn thru a memory card SOOO freakin fast you won't believe it. So to conserve memory?

One other neat addition t the new camera is spot metering. I miss that, and it is damned handy (to me)

This assumes the price of the 20D will remain the same. Let's say the price dropps to $899 or $949 ... it then becomes a $400 difference for the same 8MP sensor.
