Fastest Auto Focus. Fastest predictive focus². Fastest continuous shooting speed. The full power of EOS, protected with a satisfyingly tough metal shell.
Track a cyclist closing at 50kph, firing off 4 frames per second. The fastest focusing camera in its class, the EOS 30V Date uses predictive focus to keep fast moving action sharp, each frame focusing at blistering speed. EOS 30V Date even features Canon's remarkable eye-control focus point selection system.
An ultra-matte coating finishes a rugged metal case which feels great and inspires confidence. Design changes to the top dial improve readability, while the pleasing blue light of the backlit LCD display is great for low-light conditions.
An E-TTL II metering system links focusing distance information to the 35-zone sensor readings from the pre-flash of the EX-speedlite. Flash calculation compensates for subject reflection by ignoring areas with abnormally high readings. Pre-focus can be used to alter composition without risking under or over-exposure due to non-centred subjects.
A new algorithm exposes white objects correctly for more natural exposures on items such as wedding dresses and china.
Film transport, shutter operation and mirror operation noise levels are all suppressed, making this the quietest EOS ever. Viewfinder blackout is less than 155ms at shutter speeds above 1/60 second.
Focus and metering
7-Point Autofocus establishes focus rapidly, even when the subject is not centred. 35-zone (twice that of competing brands) evaluative light metering reads from across the entire frame to deliver consistently accurate exposures.An evaluation algorithm identifies and subsequently rejects particularly bright zones to lessen the chance of irregular exposures, even in difficult light situations.
Flexibility and control
The EOS 30V Date puts control and flexibility into the photographer's hands. Alongside standard P, Tv, Av, and M modes is an Auto depth of field (A-Dep) mode, to read closest/furthest focus information and optimise depth of field. PIC modes include Portrait, Landscape, Close-up, Sports, and Night Portrait. Shutter speeds range from 1/4000th to 30 seconds, including bulb. The EOS 30V Date allows variable format date and/or time data to be recorded on the negative.
