Poor ISO Performance

Shawn Miller "PhotoShawn", Amazon
1 February 2010
  • Summary: I ordered this camera, took some test shots...above ISO 400 it was just aweful. I sent it in to Canon got it back (they said everything checked out) fired a few more test shots and still aweful. Under ISO 400 I have no complaints pictures were great!

Bad luck or bad manufacturing?

J. Esposito "canon-cannot", Amazon
16 May 2009
  • Summary: I purchased the Canon 50D in December. It was to replace my Canon 20D which was plagued with problems from the onset. The vast majority of the problems seemed to be electrical. I sent it back repeatedly, but Canon never fully fixed the problem.

Melanie B., Newegg
20 April 2009
  • Summary: For the average joe, don't waste your money. You can get the same features, more visually appealing shots and less edit time for a lot less money. For the high end photographer such as myself, this camera isn't even a good backup unless you like spending hours in Photoshop.
  • Pros: Newegg!! Canon None!!
  • Cons: Customer Service Really Sucks!! I have been an avid Canon user for 20 years and after recent experiences, I will never use their products again. I take photos in a wide variety of environments and this camera (as well as most Canon products now) leaves much to be desired. The auto focus is glitch...

Poorly packed and below

Guillermo Quijano, Amazon
15 April 2009
  • Summary: Camera was thrown in a box with a newspaper wrapped around it. Said it would come with two batteries - came with one used and almost with no charge left. No camera strap, no documentation. I guess you pay for what you get. Very disappointing.

$50 per megapixel, what else is new Canon?

K F, Amazon
23 December 2008
  • Summary: For a long time Canon user, this camera turned out to be an extreme disappointment. Over the years I trained myself (and suspect many other folks did) to not sallivate over Nikon bodies, instead concentrating on what matters - the sensor, quality lens lineup, and affordability that Canon has always...

15 Megapixel - who asked for that?

Kyril F., Newegg
8 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought 50D despite overwhelming evidence of the above cons from various review sites, because I wanted to run my own tests. My own tests were pretty much in line with what reviewers found.
  • Pros: - Digic IV engine - Small RAW (sRAW) file support - 920K LCD - Micro AF adjustment - Marginally faster AF performance compared to 40D
  • Cons: - Noisier sensor with less dynamic range than the predecessor (40D), competitors (Nikon D300, Nikon D90) and cheaper models (Rebel XSi) - JPEGs out-of-camera show effects of noise reduction even at lower ISO settings, actually show less per-pixel sharpness than cheaper, lower-resolution cameras. ...

  • Summary: Tons of spelling and gramatical errors in the D50 video. Not a very useful video. Take a course instead - save your $$.

Disappointing

JJ, Amazon
17 April 2010
  • Summary: I bought this as a replacement/upgrade for an EOS 400D. I was immediately disappointed with the picture quality, and sent it back to Amazon within a matter of days. Most of the pictures were soft to the point of being blurry. The picture quality was worse than my older consumer level DSLR.

Not as good as I expected.

  • Summary: I was looking for a new DSLR and was given the opportunity to borrow the 50D for a 2 week holiday. I expected the camera to be fantastic particularly at this price. Quite frankly it wasn't.

  • Summary: bonjour, Aprés 3 jours l'appareil est parti chez Canon en réparation, car des particules grasses sont collées sur le capteur pas la faute de amazon mais pour un appareil comme l'EOS 50D ce n'est pas normal!!!
