Will the Batteries from my 300D fit the 30D, I notice they have a slightly different name.

Alady,

I can't speak for the 30D but my 300D battery works in the 5D. As a matter of fact, I bought the battery grip for the 5D and I put both the 300D and 5D battery in at the same time. I have never run out of juice yet.

Thanks, that battery works in the G3 as well, so I presume it will fit the 30D

When we are talking about batteries, I have original Canon and bought third party from B&H for $34. I see no difference in performance and price difference is about $20. There are even cheaper ($20) at Adorama but do not have one.

any BP-511, BP-511a, or BP-512 or equivalent should fit, so your 300D/Digital Rebel battery should drop right into a 30D. i got a spare, 1500mAH B511 on eBay for about $15 including shipping and it outlasts the battery that came with my camera!
