Detailed Features

30GB HDD

The 3.7" LCD screen provides superior colour reproduction, VGA resolution and an ultra-wide 1600 viewing angle to display your photos in detail.

Magnesium alloy body

The M30 is crafted from strong, lightweight magnesium alloy, creating a device durable enough to accompany you anywhere.

CF and SD card slots with easy back-up operation

Whether you choose to photograph to SD or CompactFlash, integrated slots are provided for convenient data transfer. Simply insert a memory card and, at the touch of a button, information is transferred to the M30’s HDD at speeds of over 4 MB/s - while Data Verification checks that your images are duplicated without corruption.

Password protection of images for security

Keep your private images private. Password protection ensures that only your intended audience sees your pictures.

Slideshow function with background music

Effortlessly review large numbers of files with the M30’s built-in Slideshow function. The option of adding background music allows you to create powerful presentations of your images, anywhere.

Support for many formats

Much more than a picture viewer, the M30 offers support for almost every popular audio-visual file format, including JPEG, TIFF, MPEG 1, 2 and 4, MP3 and WAV. The M30 also allows you to store images in Canon’s own D-SLR RAW format, making it an ideal solution for photographers who need to store and preview images on location.

Detailed EXIF data visible

Get comprehensive EXIF details - including shooting date and time, and camera settings - for any shot at the touch of a button.

Audio/Video out and PictBridge connection

Audio/Video out sockets make presenting your work easy; one simple connection and you’re ready to take your images or sounds to a wider audience. Or you can choose to print directly to a PictBridge compatible printer via a single cable connection. No computers, no fuss - just instant copies of your images, whenever you need them.
