Is Canon 30D still a good camera?
The 30D is a great camera and its 8 MP is still useful today (at east for normal sized prints). The main things that it lacks is Liveview and the number of AF points. I believe it only has 9 points and Liveview wasn’t a option until the 40D. High ISO noise might be a bit high compared to modern standards as well.
