Canon EOS 50D

  |   by DigitalCameraReview Staff

The Canon EOS 50D is a 15.1 megapixel “prosumer” DSLR and the first camera to employ Canon’s DIGIC IV image engine. Specs and features include 6.3 fps high-speed shooting, maximum sensitivity to ISO 12800, a 920K dot 3.0-inch LCD, and a 100,000 cycle shutter. Scene presets and a new Creative Auto mode make the camera more approachable and accessible for less experienced users.

  • Pros

    • Fantastic resolution for capturing fine details
    • Low-noise sensor (albeit with heavy noise reduction at expanded ISOs)
    • Excellent selection of in-camera JPEG processing options
    • Solid durability
    • Great ability to trigger flash at a variety of shutter speeds
    • AF system still among the fastest
  • Cons

    • Heavy like a lead brick
    • Overly complicated menus and submenus
    • Live view interface not very intuitive
    • Default processing a little flat
    • AF accuracy not consistent

Quick Take

As with previous Canon releases, the 50D is a fairly conservative upgrade, but this camera still sits at or near the top in its category.
