Technical Highlights:

* Combining the best exposure comtrol modes available on Canon EOS 650QD and Canon EOS 620 QD plus a little MORE Programmed Image Control, Predictive focus & Custom Function.
* Although the EOS 630 (QD) was supposedly introduced to replace earlier EOS620, but some of its basic functions were based more on the EOS 650, and features improved functions (NOT the top shutter speed (1/2000sec) and Sync speed (1/125sec.) as compared with 1/4000sec and 1/250 sec offer in the EOS620). It was dubbed the "pioneer of the New generation of EOS." during time of its introduction. New features includes a high-speed AF where Canon claimed the camera can focus/track 1X faster than earlier EOS620, it has also an improved predictive AF control function and a PIC image modes and enhanced custom functions.
* The EOS 630 (QD) comes in two colors: metallic gray and black.
* Auto date models are provided with five imprint date items (including OFF).
* Use of the 300FZ enables use of AF Illuminator.
