Canon M30 portable storage unit

 

Review of the Canon M30 portable storage unit

Great LCD screen, construction

Expensive, handling, slow transfer speeds

The unit doesn’t represent very good value, at over £300, Epson and Vosonic offer a better capacity-to-outlay ratio and wider support for other file formats.

Canon Media Storage M30

 

Bereits zur Photokina 2006 vorgestellt, bringt Canon nun seinen ersten mobilen Datenspeicher auf den Markt. Bedienung und Optik sind dabei ganz auf die hauseigene EOS-Serie abgestimmt, so dass sich als Canon-Fotograf gleich ein vertrautes Gefühl...

Auch preislich spielt Canons M30 und M80 in der Oberliga, beachtet man, dass Canon für die 30-GByte-Variante einen stolzen Preis von 540, für das 80-GByte-Modell sogar 700 Euro empfiehlt.

Der Canon Media Storage M30 bzw. M80 wendet sich mit seinem an der Canon EOS-Reihe angelehntes Design insbesondere an Fans der Marke. Er ist ein Multimediaspeicher der diverse Foto-, Musik- und Videoformate zwischenspeichert und wiedergibt

Mein Fazit lautet: ein sehr gut verarbeiteter Multimediaspeicher, mit einem tollen Bildschirm und einfacher Bedienung. Canon sollte aber die Geschwindigkeit (Zoomen, Kopieren) noch deutlich verbessern
