Canon 30D – I am disappointed

They addressed only 3 items on my 30D wishlist, namely spotmeter, ISO display in viewfinder and better LCD. They added a soft touch electromagnetic release which I would love to have, and I forgot to include that in my wishlist… I am still kindda disappointed at the minor improvements though, I must say, but at the same time I am a bit relieved as I won’t have to sink yet more money into photo gears… It’s the eye behind the viewfinder that really matters afterall… Having a 1DsM2 or 5D won’t automatically make one a better photographer…

The 30D shares the same 8.19 megapixel CMOS sensor as the 20D including other core components such as the 9-point AF system, 5 fps max shoot rate, and 1/8000 top shutter speed. And yes, it remains compatible with 20D accessories. Some notable enhancements include a new 2.5-inch 230K color LCD, Canon’s more flexible Picture Style menu, an increased burst depth, and the welcome ability to change the ISO while looking through the viewfinder.
