DP Review
6 May 2009
  • Conclusion: It's exactly eight years ago this month that Phil posted his review of the Canon D30 . The camera was Canon's first 'developed in house' DSLR and therefore a milestone in digital photography.
  • Pros: Detailed and clean image output (but not as detailed as we would have expected from a 15 megapixels sensor), Chroma and luminance noise well controlled at higher sensitivities, Wide range of image parameter adjustment (-4 to +4 for most), Effective Highlight tone priority option delivers smooth h...
  • Cons: High ISO performance worse than 40D, Reduced dynamic range in the shadow areas compared to EOS 40D, Per-pixel detail not as good as on good 10 or 12 megapixel cameras, High-end lenses required to get the most out of the camera, Poor white balance performance under artificial light, Flash must be ...

  • Summary: The Canon EOS 50D is a feature-packed semi-pro DSLR which takes the already capable 40D, increases the pixel count by 50%, quadruples the sensitivity and packs in all the latest features – bar a movie mode.
  • Pros: High resolution which matches 40D’s noise., Quick handling and continuous shooting., VGA screen with Live View & HDMI., AF micro-adjust and vignette correction.
  • Cons: Needs decent optics to exploit resolution., Face detection impractical due to slow AF., Auto Lighting Optimizer unremarkable., Lacking movie mode.

  • Summary: Canon seems to have thrown everything but the kitchen sink at the EOS 50D in a bid to re-assert itself in the semi-pro market. In doing so it's produced a great camera, and while it might not convert existing Nikon and Sony owners, it's the ideal upgrade for any Canon user.
