Digital Storage Devices

Canon M30 & M80 multimedia storage viewers
Press Release:
With their tough, robust magnesium alloy bodies and intuitive navigation familiar to EOS owners, the devices add an important link to the workflow chain of professional photojournalists and photographers on location, outdoor and expedition shoots. They are also expected to be popular with the increasing body of every-day photographers looking for new ways to store and display favourite shots and extend storage capacity whilst away from the computer.

The Media Storage M30 and M80 feature:
  • 30/80 Gb hard disk
  • 3.7 ultra-bright TFT screen with 160 viewing angle
  • CF and SD card reader
  • USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection
  • Support for multiple image, video and sound file formats, including Canon RAW, MPEG, MP3 and WAV.
  • Extended PictBridge functionality
  • 4 8 digit image file password protection
  • 1/8 audio-out headphone jack

This is the EOS accessory many Canon professionals have been asking us for, said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe. As well as extending pro photographer back-up and storage capacity, there is no doubt the units will appeal to amateur photographers looking for more flexible, enjoyable and portable alternatives to the traditional photo album."

Multi-media versatility

In addition to the capacity to store Canon RAW and JPEG images, the Media Storage M30 and M80 units can also store and display / playback a variety of multi-media files. A headphone jack is provided for audio playback of MPEG as well as WAV and MP3 files.

Reliability and security
Designed for professional use, the units are robust, reliable and secure. The 1.8 HDD is chosen for its stability and superior protection features and both units are protected with a tough, rugged magnesium alloy outer casing. To avoid corruption, files are validated during upload from memory card. To prevent unauthorised access, images and other files can be protected with an up to 8 digit password.

Battery convenience
For EOS photographer convenience, the units take the BP 511A battery used in various EOS models including the EOS 5D, EOS 20D and EOS 30D, as well as professional products such as the WFT E1 Wireless File Transmitter.

I'll stick with my Archos bit of kit, it's just as capable, looks nicer and I'm sure will be a fraction of the price of this!
I can see the Canon purists/snobs reaching for their wallets right now, thinking this is the best piece of kit available!...It must be it has Canon written on it!.....Fools!

Great looking product, but am I the only one who cant find it on Canon's website?

That's a nice touch - using the BP-511/512 batteries that the 300D/350D/30D etc use. It means you always have the ability to grab a spare battery from somewhere - and only carry one charger.
osman123, don't judge so quickly. Clearly you have some issues!

Sorry for that....NOT!
