Canon boothThe Canon booth was very comprehensive and complete. They had a booth or counter for every imaging-related product, from movie cameras to D-SLRs to poster-size printers. They had everything. Of course the new EOS 30D was the main attraction as well as the 5D. Compared to the 20D, the 30D has a larger LCD monitor, a higher maximum burst during continuous shooting, and spot metering. The 8 megapixels and sensor size are the same. Canon says that this is the optimum pixel count for the supporting technologies in the camera. And that the image quality does not depend solely on the megapixel count.

Canon modelThis Canon ministage was surrounded by EOS 30D cameras which we could use to shoot these female models on the ministage. They let us print out a picture (A4 size) and take it home.

Canon model (wireless photo studio demo)Canon also had a photo studio to demonstrate a digital photo shoot with the top-of-the-line EOS D-SLR attached with a remote transmitter which transmitted the images to a computer via wireless. We saw the images appear on the TV monitor as it was transmitted to the computer. You can shoot very quickly, but the images don't transfer or appear as fast. I guess they were RAW. Here the model is showing off one of the photos which was taken and printed on the spot.
