Canon 30D dSLR - 8 Megapixel CMOS|
According to Steve Digicams: "The 30D's 3504x2336 8.2-megapixel CMOS image sensor is identical to the 20D's. That's plenty of resolution for an enthusiast dSLR, although some Canon loyalists were disappointed that the 30D did not offer higher resolution. One thing they won't be disappointed with, however, is the class-leading image quality at high sensitivity settings that the 30D shares with its predecessor. At ISO settings under 400, the 30D's images are essentially noise-free. Shadow noise becomes detectable at ISO 400, and noticeable at ISO 1600."
Canon EOS 30D review conclusion - Steves Digicams
Steve continues: "The 30D's continuous shooting mode also produced impressive performance. I was able to capture between 20 and 43 Large Fine images (depending on image content) at 5fps, with subsequent shots coming at 6/10 second intervals while the camera's buffer remained full. The 30D's ergonomics are very good; the layout of its controls identical to the 20D. It retains the 20D's multi-controller, a small 8-way joy stick that's used to select the AF point, set White Balance correction, move the trimming frame for direct printing, and scroll a magnified image in playback mode."
