Excerpt: Not a bad camera but Pentax cameras were a revelation to me in their use. I was disappointed with the ergonomics and the lack of some features. Picture quality was also a letdown for the price paid. Nikon had the D90 and that's what I was looking at. Problems: No major problems beside not being competitive.
Summary: the order is good in all, except the generic batteries that you send me. this batteries are bad for my camera, because not identificate it normally. for no have any problem i need a original battery, but i don't now if you can send me one original like was the original order.
Summary: I have been a life time supporter of Canon cameras, and upgraded to a 50D a little over a year ago. Most of my photography is travel photography in very remote places. Since I've had the camera, it's had to go back twice for repairs. I had used a Rebel XT for five years in much worse conditions....and never had a problem. And while I love the image quality from the 50D, and it's ease of use.....I'm worried about it's reliability. I'm off on a trip tomorrow..
Summary: I am a techie girl who love SLR camera's. I sold my D1000 and bought this. I was so happy with previous camera but I want to upgrage within my budget and purchased this one. I am not an expert, I am a beginner. I noticed that whenever I selet the automatic mode, pictures are always blurry. I tried using the tripod but same happened. I dont know whats wrong but I wanted to sell my camera again because of this.
Summary: I bought this camera the end of January of this year. I used it a couple of times just to play with it. I then used it at a wedding on March 13th which was one day over my 30 day return limit. Needless to say the camera hangs up, gives you a busy message and will not let you take pictures! This happened during the wedding! I tried it again yesterday and it did the same thing. I contacted Amazon and all they say it tough, you are over your 30 days.
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! In my opinion it just isn't versatile enough for the price when it comes to the ISO. My XSi shoots at ISO 800 much better than the 50D :( Anyway rave reviews to Amazon!
Summary: Great camera but the kit lens is cheap and takes very soft pictures. Your better off buying the body only and getting the L- lens series. But thats if your into spending thousands of dollars for camera that is going to be obsolete next year. Get the Pentax K20d body and a great Pentax star lens for half the price.. You'll be happy..
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. I'd get it back, load it up and within a shot or two...I'd be right back in ERROR message mode. My husband and I decided to upgrade to the Canon 50D for Christmas.
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 offered in its semi-pro DSLRs. With 50D, all that is gone. 1.
