Canon Lenses

Nothing ran complement the EOS 30D better than a Canon lens. Canon's EFand EE-5 lenses are designed specifically for EOS SLR cameras and offer unmatched performance, bar none. With over 50 lenses available, from fisheye to super telephoto, Canon lenses are found on the cameras of professional photographers everywhere. Canon continues to innovate, constantly introducing new lenses with specialized elements, coalings and technology that raise performance standards across the board. Canon lenses promise superior optics, smooth operation and flawless compatibility with the EOS 30D.

L Series Lenses

No other lenses in modern photography carry the reputation of Canon's renowned L Series. Recognizable by the bold red band around the front of the harrel, L Series lenses utilize the best in Canon's cutting-edge technology, like Ultra- WfitU

EF-S Lenses

Canon's EF-S lenses were developed specifically for digital cameras with APS-C size sensors like the EOS 30D, and these efforts have resulted in compact, ¿fffljk light-weight lens designs ^^^^^^ *** and optimized performance without compromise. ------

The new EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM is designed for those seeking a high- „w performance, fast lens with __

Zoom Lenses

From ultra-wide angle to super telephoto, Canon's EFand EF-S zoom lenses cover the most popular range of focal lengths, so for most shooting, you can keep the same lens on the camera. Whether you're searching for the perfect lens to travel with or a high-speed, constant-aperture L Series zoom, Canon offers a zoom lens that's perfect for you.

Diffractive Optics

Canon's unique Diffractive Optics (DO) technology allows telephoto lenses to be significantly smaller and lighter while also reducing chromatic aberration. Special DO lens elements with multiple layers of ultra-precise circular diffraction rings bend light more sharply than conventional optics, reducing Ihe overall lens size. Sclcct lens elements behind the DO elements combine to virtually eliminate color fringing.

Macro and TS-E Lenses

Canon's EF lens lineup has many options for close-up and macro photography. Canon offers five macro and three screw-on close-up lenses in addition to life-size converters and extension tubes. Canon's TS E lenses are capable of tilt and shift movements, allowing photographers to capture a broad depth-of-field even at larger apertures and to alter perspective at almost any angle.

E-TTL II Flash Metering System

The E-TTL II (Evaluative Through-TheLens) flash metering system weighs and averages the flash metering information from both ambient light and preflash readings. t-ITL II captures the subject as a "plane" and not as a "point," so the 30D can obtain consistent flash exposures even if the subject contains radical changes in color or reflectivity.


EOS Accessories

To enhance the performance and scope of what you can do with the EOS 30D, look no further than Canon accessories. Canon's Speedlite flashes. Battery Grip BG-E?, Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E1A and more work with the EOS 30D to make stunning photography easy.

Speedlite 580EX

With a maximum guide number ofiyo ft./!>8m, this Speedlite has an impressive range. It communicates focusing and white balance information with FOS SLRs for perfect exposure.

Speedlite 430EX

This Speedlite boasts a maximum guide number of 141 ft./43m and fast recycle time. Its AF-assist beam and color temperature information help produce excellent exposures.

Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX

Great for capturing accurate color and minimising shadows, this flash unit is a must for macro photography. The flash heads are incredibly flexible, so numerous configurations are possible.

Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX

Designed for close-up photography with EF Macro lenses, this flash unit produces even illumination and captures the smallest details.

Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2

This dedicated transmitter can control an unlimited number of stave flashes that are up to 33 ft. (outdoors) or 49.S ft. (indoors) away.

Battery Grip BG-E2

This battery grip adds a vertical shutter release and is compatible with up to two of Canon's Lithium-ion battery packs or a set of six AA-size batteries.

Compact Battery Pack CP-E3

Attach this battery pack to select Speedlite flashes for faster flash recycling. It acccpts AA-size batteries and is ideal for extended shooting.

Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E1A

This Wireless File Transmitter allows image transfer via a wired Ethernet or wireless Local Area Network (LAN). It's great for sharing images immediately after shooting.
