Canon EOS 30D

Canon EOS 30D

Thanks to our obsession with digital cameras a lot of us find it hard to pull the trigger on buying a new one when we know a newer model is right around the corner. Well, fear no more. The Canon EOS 30D ($1400; May) features an 8.2 megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor, a DIGIC II image processor that gives the camera a .15-second start-up time, and a 2.5" LCD — and that's just for starters. Along with CF/Microdrive storage and compatibility, the camera is also fully compatible with all EF and EF-S Lenses
and hundreds of EOS system accessories.
It has enough megapixels and enough
features that it should last you a long time,
or at least until the 20 megapixel credit-card
sized model comes out in 2010.

  • Canon DC40 Widescreen Camcorder

    While there are plenty of camcorders that claim to have widescreen recording, most don't utilize the full sensor to get them, resulting in a slightly lower resolution image. The Canon DC40 ($TBD; March) fixes this problem by using a 4.3 megapixel CCD. The DC40 also records straight to DVD with Dolby Digtal Stereo audio, takes great still images thanks to Canon's DIGIC DV processor, and doesn't take up a lot of space in the camera bag.

  • Olympus Evolt E-330

    The only reason this editor picked the Sony DSC-H1 over a nice digital SLR camera was simple — I hate using viewfinders and constantly squinting. Apparently hearing similar complaints, Olympus has announced a new camera that will finally let me join the SLR ranks without eye fatigue. The Evolt E-330 ($1000; March) is the world's first digital SLR to offer "live" viewing through its LCD screen. The camera also features a dust reduction system for spot-free photos, TruePic Turbo image processor, and digital-specific Zuiko lens. What's more, its 2.5-inch articulated LCD also features HyperCrystal technology and offers
    advanced swivel capability so you can
    capture shots from any angle.
