Canon EOS 50D Digital SLR Highlights
New 15.1-megapixel CMOS sensor with improved noise reduction
The EOS 50D features a newly-designed 15.1-megapixel APS-C sized CMOS sensor which is capable of recording up to 4752 x 3168 pixels with full 14-bit A/D conversion for extremely fine tonal gradation. Ready to capture images in an instant, the sensor is designed to work with Canons EF and EF-S lenses with a conversion factor of 1.6x. Its capable of recording at sensitivities previously too noisy for shooting in low light or subjects in motion. With a maximum ISO rating of 12800 combined with a 4-level High ISO speed noise reduction function, images that would have been impossible without the use of a strobe or flash become simple to record.
The EOS 50D operates with such effortless speed that operation is nothing short of intuitive. With instant startup times, speedy autofocus and minimal shutter lag, the EOS 50D is one of the fastest cameras available today. It can shoot up to 6.3 fps, in bursts of up to 90 JPEGs (using an UDMA CF card), 60 JPEGs (using a CF card) consecutively or 16 RAW files, so youll never, ever miss a shot.
DIGIC 4 Image Processor
This next generation DIGIC 4 Image Processor offers finer details and even more natural color reproduction, compared with the previous DIGIC III Image Processor. Since Canons DIGIC 4 chips use advanced signal processing technologies, they provide even faster operations, including write times to UDMA cards. It also enables Face Detection Live mode to detect and focus up to 35 face(s) to capture the best possible shot. Further, DIGIC 4 offers the improved Auto Lighting Optimizer that corrects brightness and contrast automatically, and Peripheral Illumination Correction for up to 40 EF lenses. DIGIC always maximizes performance between the capturing and recording stages of digital photography.
The EOS 50D features Canons most advanced Live View shooting thanks to the number of focusing modes available including Quick mode, Live mode and Face Detection Live mode. You can zoom in and navigate the composition 5x or 10x normal size, enabling critical focus. Theres even 2 overlay grid options, perfect for lining up vertical and horizontal lines. In the studio, the camera can be controlled remotely with Live View Function when the camera is connected to a computer through a USB cable, or wirelessly if the optional Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E3A is used.
9 cross-type high-precision sensors for accurate target subject acquisition
The EOS 50D has a high-precision 9-point wide area AF that uses cross-type points at f-stops of f/5.6 or faster, enabling the camera to focus faster, more accurately, and in difficult lighting situations. AF sensitivity is a stunning EV-0.5 to EV18. Adding to this AF performance, the EOS 50D incorporates a diagonally mounted cross-type sensor that is sensitive to both vertical and horizontal lines at f/2.8, perfect for enhanced operation in dim light. The EOS 50D has a number of focus modes, including One-Shot AF, AI Focus AF and AI Servo AF.
New Lens Peripheral Illumination Correction setting
Canons exclusive Lens Peripheral Illumination setting takes into account any light falloff in the corners of the frame and corrects it, making for a perfectly exposed image. Correction data are detected automatically on a number of Canon EF lenses and can be entered manually through included the Canon EOS Utility software.
Updated EOS Integrated Cleaning System
The EOS 50Ds Self Cleaning Sensor Unit eliminates stray dust that enters the camera when changing a lens or when out in the field. The sensors IR-cut/Low-pass filter cleans itself automatically with ultrasonic vibrations every time the camera is turned on or off and features a new flourine coating to minimize dust adhesion. Dust missed by the cleaning unit is captured by Canons Dust Delete Data Detection software and can be erased from the image file.
A key element of minimizing dust is preventing it from clinging to the front surface of the imaging sensor. To combat this, the EOS 50D features a Canon-designed Self Cleaning Sensor Unit. The low-pass filter at the front of the sensor shakes off dust automatically with ultrasonic vibrations, removing dust from the sensor assembly. The EOS 50D also has a coating on the front surface of the low-pass filter, to increase its resistance to dust sticking to the sensor.
Dust that may still remain on the front of the sensor can also be erased with software included in Digital Photo Professional (DPP) Version 3.3 or later software. A simple test shot of a plain, white object can be taken, using a menu setting. This Dust Delete Data image is analyzed in-camera, and the location and size of any remaining dust is added to any subsequent pictures taken. This data is transmitted along with the image, whether JPEG or RAW, and can be either manually or automatically erased in Canons DPP software. This added software option ensures the cleanest possible image, perfect for printing or archiving.
Creative Auto goes a step beyond full auto with on screen setting display The EOS 50D has a new Creative Auto mode and a quick control screen that helps novice users narrow the gap between fully automatic and manual control. While the camera will remain by default in fully automatic mode, frequently changed settings like flash, exposure compensation, image quality and more are all accessible through one easy screen interface designed for intuitive, quick action. A provided shooting guide serves as a quick-reference for on-the-fly operation.
HDMI output for displaying full high-resolution images on a HDTV The EOS 50D includes a new HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) output device that enables High Definition display of your photographs on any HDTV with HDMI ports. Its remarkable to behold the details of your photographs in Full HD, and its easy with the EOS 50D. Resolution is set automatically to match the TV to which youve connected, and images are displayed in a full-frame 3:2 ratio with blacked out bars to the left and right of the image.
Compatible with over 60 Canon EF/EF-S lenses and most EOS System accessories
EF & EF-S Lenses
The EOS 50D is compatible with all Canon lenses in the EF and EF-S lineup, ranging from ultra-wide angle to super telephoto lenses. Canon lenses employ advanced optical expertise and micron-precision engineering to deliver unprecedented performance in all facets of the photographic process. Special optical technologies, such as Aspherical, ultra-low dispersion, or fluorite elements are featured in the universally acclaimed L-series lenses. And Canon's Optical Image Stabilizer technology is featured in select lenses to minimize the effect of camera shake. Through Canon lenses, photographers can truly maximize the quality and liberating performance of the EOS 50D.
The EOS 50D features the acclaimed E-TTL II flash metering system. With any of the flashes in the EX Speedlite line, E-TTL II provides reliable flash output whether shooting fill-in flash pictures in sunlight, or using flash in total darkness. With E-TTL II, the exact same 35-zone metering sensor used for measuring ambient light is also used for flash metering--giving even finer metering command of the image area. If you prefer a broader area for flash metering, there's a menu setting to change to "Average" flash metering--where the entire 35-zone area is measured evenly for flash exposure.
Canon EOS Digital Solution Disk (Version 17.0)

This camera became the 4th Canon DSLR I own two of which are newer cameras in the Rebel line and all of which were purchased new. Thus far I have taken only a few photos using it but it may soon become my favorite.
Maybe it's because I work long hours and I'm not outside during the day, but most of my 50D photos so far have been in the late afternoon or evenings, or indoors. As such I've used ISO 1600 quite a bit. The images to my eye look fantastic! Within the menu system there are High ISO Noise Reduction and Long Exposure Noise Reduection options that can be turned on/off as needed.
If one is to compare image quality of the 50D to the 40D, I think it's interesting to remember the 50D takes larger, higher resolution images. In other words, the 50D images start out with more detail. And from the research I did it appears the 50D's images can be sharpened and still have more detail than the 40D. There are good explanations of this on the web. Amazon censored out the article links I included but if you contact me I'd be happy to provide them.
Anyway, suffices to say I'm very happy with my 50D's IQ so far. I also like it's super fast and accurate focusing! I haven't used Live View very much but that feature has had its useful moments. The LCD screen is gorgeous! And the controls and menus are easy to navigate. To be honest, they were a bit overwhelming the first couple days but then quickly became second nature. I also bought Jeff Revell's Canon 50D: From Snapshots to Great Shots. It's a "beginner" type book IMO, but still a good intro to this camera and a primer of DSLR basics if you're transitioning from film to digital like I was.
I bought the 50D body only from Amazon and got the Canon EF 50mm f1.4 USM Standard & Medium Telephoto Lens for Canon SLR Cameras from Adorama; they matched the price and they've been very easy to work with. OK that's enough from me! If you happen to have any questions let me know, I'll try to answer best I can. Cheers!
Once digital EOS cameras started being produced I knew I wanted one so I could experiment without the limitations of film costs. Unfortunately for many years, the high cost of digital EOS cameras prevented me from purchasing one. That is, until the year my wife and I got a fairly heft tax refund check from the IRS. I was planning on using it on bills (like we normally have done in the past) but my wife, tired of hearing me lamenting the fact that I couldn't afford a digital EOS camera, demanded I use the money to get one. After doing a lot of research I decided to stick with the Canon brand and get the 50D (at the time the newest camera on the market).
I have now been using it for over two years and have not had any problems with it. I think it's an excellent camera for beginners as well as more experienced photographers and allows for a lot of experimentation with various settings. A newer camera has been recently released by Canon which seems to be getting mixed reviews. Hopefully the release of the newer Canon camera will cause the price on the 50D to drop somewhat.
Definitely a camera I would recommend to family and friends.
