Error 30 On Canon 50D

Sat Jun 20, 2009 9:44 pm

We've come across an apparently rare error on our new Canon 50D - Error 30 which occurs regularly after shooting a few exposures in a row.
The Canon helpline wasn't of much help so far and a Google search didn't help either. If possible, we'd like to avoid sending it in if it's solvable with a firmware update or the like.
Perhaps anyone has experienced something similar?

Nope, no error 30 and I have been shooting with my 50D for 7 months now. Had some Error99 in the beginning but upgrading the firmware took care of that.
Have you searched DP-review? What I have found is that Error 30 is shutter related and that the newest fimware shows that, before all errors were 99 basically.

Thanks John, just saw the info on dpreview, at least I know now what causes it.
