Canon 30D - How to automatically capture the pictures on my HP Vista laptop

My son gave me his Canon 30D camera as he bought himself a new camera, but am wondering if I need something (hopefully not expensive) that would allow me to connect it directly to my HP Vista laptop so my pictures automatically download to my laptop.

Should just be a common USB mini cable, most cameras have this interface and Vista will automatically see the camera wiht its generic drivers. I use Picasa to download all my photos from 6 different cameras to my desktop and my laptop.

Many times the older version drivers will work as new released operating systems try to be backwards compatible with software. Try loading the XP software or search the Canon website for updated software for your model.

I have error code #99 on a canon eos 30d


Error 99 is Canon's default for several "connection" problems most common are dirty contacts between the lens and camera body. Another is the contacts in the battery compartment both the camera and the battery contacts should be cleaned.

The camera might not be able to read the memory card, download the pictures to your computer and format the memory card don't delete them format the card this function is found in the set up menu.

Formatting is one of the most important functions to keep the camera and memory card communicating AND is the most neglected function. Always format a new memory card and always format a memory card after downloading pictures to a computer. Format a memory card if it's been in another camera.

Cleaning the lens and body contacts can be done fairly easily with a clean pencil eraser, don't use a puffer on the body as you will blow dirt into the camera. With the lens removed hold the camera as much as possible with the lens opening pointed down and gently polish the gold contacts. Do the same with the lens contacts make sure both areas are clean and re install the lens to the body.

Possibly the most important "fix" is to update your camera's firmware. Go to Canon's web site (it can be a bit intimidating at first) and search through until you find the firmware updates for your camera. Download this generally they want you to download to a memory card then place the card into the camera and upload the new firmware updates.

The Canon 30D (in my opinion) is one of the best no frills, greatest working DSLR cameras Canon produced. Not saying the model's beyond are not it's just the 30D isn't loaded down with video functions. Great all around working camera, sorry my rant for the day.

Cheers have fun with your Canon 30D

The CCD camera canon eos 30d is dirty and the technician tells me I can buy a new ccd. This dirt is stuck. It's very noticeable when I take photos in clear sky .. Where sold CCD Camera Canon EOS...


If you have dirt on the sensor, it can be cleaned using special products. If you Google the words "how to clean an SLR sensor", you will find sites that explain the procedure with pictures and places where you can order the supplies needed. This is much less expensive than trying to replace the ccd sensor.

Has the camera been exposed to heat? If left in a hot car, the display gets cooked. Luckily mine was still in warranty and Canon gave me a new one. I really like it.

Canon EDS 30D Viewfinder Off during Picture Taking Works to Display Picture Taken How do I turn back on?


The EOS 30D does not have "live view". (Most SLR digital cameras made before 2007 do not.) By definition, an SLR (single lens reflex) camera looks through the same lens with the viewfinder as it uses when taking the picture.

So there is no way to see the picture on the LCD before the picture is taken, like you can with compact digital cameras. You compose the picture through the optical viewfinder, then shoot.

Suspect you have a PC/Laptop SOFTWARE problem, there. I've had this myself. Can you try and load the software on another PC, and see if that works? - Larry

SLR's don't show what your seeing through the view finder on the LCD. That is a function on point and shoot cameras, not on SLR's.
