The Canon EOS 30D is the much anticipated successor to the 20D. The 30D is Canon's mid-range digital SLR, more expensive than the Digital Rebel XT, but less than the Canon EOS 5D. We got hands on with the camera at PMA and loved the feel and construction of the camera (as well as the spec sheet).
The A must stand for Affordable in Canon's new A series digital cameras. The Powershot A700, Powershot A540, Powershot A530, and Powershot A430 will range in price from $179-$349. The A series cameras from Canon are meant to be a good entry camera into digital photography. The cameras take AA batteries and have a wide variety of controls (depending on the model). If you want easy to use, there's an A-series camera.
Before and during the PMA show, there were pleny of new digital cameras announced. However, they won't hit the market until, at the earliest, later this month. Until then, the most popular cameras list hasn't changed much over the last couple of months. Below are the top ten most popular digital cameras on our site during the month of February.
We got to see lots of great things at PMA this year, including:
Panasonic and Olympus announced the results of their collaboration this morning at a press conference before the PMA show floor opened. They've been working, since January 13, 2005, to jointly develop "underlying components and key components". The two hard results of this collaboration are the Olympus E-330 and the brand new Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1.
Not to be left out of all the new product annoucements, Lowepro has announced a new line of bags designed for resporters, a rolling computer/camera backpack, a non-rolling computer and camera backpack, and some new colors for their Rezo line of compact camera cases. Lowepro bags are known for their high quality and excellent design.
Finishing up their announcements for PMA, Sony has announced the Cyber-shot DSC-H5 and Cyber-shot DSC-H2 ultra zoom digital cameras. Also two new cameras will be added to their W line, the Cyber-shot DSC-W70 and Cyber-shot DSC-W100. UPDATE: Added some product shots and sample images.
Samsung has announced three new cameras ahead of PMA. The Samsung GX-1L is the second camera released from collaboration with Pentax. The Digimax L60 offers 6 megapixels, 3x optical zoom, and a 2.4 inch screen in a compact form factor. The Digimax L85 features an 8 megapixel sensor, 5x optical zoom, 2.5 inch LCD, and the world's first high definition interface (HDMI) in a still camera.
Canon has announced their new crop of digital cameras ahead of the PMA show that starts this coming Sunday. Even though the digital camera market is maturing and slowing, it seems like the manufacturers introduce more models during the course of a year. This time, we see a new digital SLR (Canon EOS 30D), a new prosumer model (Powershot S3 IS), and several other Powershot models to update the line or replace models that were introduced last year. The upside to all these models is that you'll be able to find a high quality camera at just about any price point.
