Pocket Lint
4 June 2009
  • Conclusion: In general use, the Canon EOS 500D is an excellent point and shoot DSLR, for those who want an uncomplicated camera that offers greater potential than compact models. The Creative Auto may convince you to click that mode dial, but will perhaps be lost on more experienced users.
  • Pros: Image quality, HD video capture (with limitations), display (visually), CA good for beginners
  • Cons: Lack of display articulation, video capture lacks controls, no external mic option

LetsGoDigital

  • Conclusion: Er zijn natuurlijk wel genoeg andere Canon objectieven voorhanden om te gebruiken in combinatie met de Canon EOS 500D. De EOS body is van hoge kwaliteit en zorgt voor veel fotoplezier. De camera is gebruiksvriendelijk en biedt feitelijk een heel hoge beeldkwaliteit.

  • Conclusion: В Canon EOS 500D применена схожая матрица и тот же процессор Digic IV, что и в старшей модели EOS 50D. Именно этим объясняется то высокое качество изображения, которое демонстрирует этот фотоаппарат.
  • Pros: высокое разрешение матрицы и низкий уровень шума на всех ISO;, возможность съемки видео в формате HD и Full HD;, режим Live View с контрастным и фазовым автофокусом;, простой и понятный интерфейс.
  • Cons: невозможность выбрать точку фокусировки в одно касание;, видеосъемка в формате Full HD с частотой 20 кадров/с;, некоторая неточность баланса белого и экспоавтоматики.
