User Review

Rolo King, DP Review
20 March 2012
  • 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.

Poor ISO Performance

Shawn Miller "PhotoShawn", Amazon

  • 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?

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.

$50 per megapixel, what else is new Canon?

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...

Canon EOS 50D Digital SLR Camera

  • Summary: Just a word of caution for Adobe LightRoom 1.x users and possibly PhotoShop CS3 (and prior) users. Adobe is apparently playing a negative role in Canon's updated and changing RAW formats, in that if you buy the 50D, thus far, Adobe is NOT releasing a RAW update to Lightroom 1.x, and you MUST upgrade...

  • 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.

  • 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.
