This has been replaced by the EOS 50D. Here's what we had to say when the 30D was originally released in February 2006:

The Canon EOS 30D expands upon the ever-popular 20D with some fantastic new features. The camera's body has been redesigned into a smoother, sportier form, much like the luxurious 5D. Canon's also tossed in a large, 2.5 inch LCD monitor for taking a better look at those 8.2 megapixel images. For the impatient, a direct print button has been added to the back, and ISO speed is displayed in the viewfinder as it is changed. A 100,000 shot shutter cycle offers robust durability and the camera is capable of simultaneous RAW and JPEG image recording. The 30D is a step up, and will certainly be the digital SLR of choice in the coming year.
