Summary: I bought this one used for sports and got good use out of it for all of two month. I'm a novice having only recently upgraded from an S100 to this DSLR but the controls were easy to navigate. I had a harder time migrating from the 50D to the 70D (and 7D) than when I first got the 50D.
Summary: I am sorta joking about the title, but really, this has so many features I thought were only available on a 5D mkII! Silent Shutter Ultra-high FPS (With Magic Lantern) Video Recording Very clean ISO performance.
Summary: As for an advanced amateur photografer, this camera offers great opportunities. Camera limits me in no way. It requires good lens to show great pictures. Body feels so strong and durable, lays perfect inmy hand. It's very fast in operating. Slight disadvantage is known noise level of the sensor.
Summary: The pros and cons of this camera have already been reported on very nicely by other reviewers - this short video tutorial is going to outline the process of installing Magic Lantern on your 50D, as well as show off the added video capabilities!
Summary: I have done everything to this camera that I thought would break it by now. I dropped it in a camp fire, put it in the snow to take a picture, did photography in sandstorms and blizzards, packed it tight into a hiking bag. On a road trip this camera once fell on to the ground lens first.
Summary: This camera was and still is one of my favorite DSLR's I have ever owned. This thing is tough as nails, takes stunning photos, and works like a charm. I've shot everything from macro to landscapes with this camera and I must say I love this body.
Summary: I bought this camera recently as an upgrade for my Rebel XS. The only problem I have is the CF card. It seems so antiquated, even though the camera was brand new out of the box. The Rebel (bought in 09) had an SD card. So I assumed that this had a SD card as well. Duh.
