Canon 50D is an Excellent DSLR – Imaging Resource

Canon EOS 50D

Imaging Resource says the Canon EOS 50D is an excellent upgrade to the 40D, with a redesign to its microlens array (“gapless” microlenses) as one of its major selling points.

The change, according to the review, has allowed Canon to offer a wider range of ISO settings than the company has ever offered, ranging from ISO 100 to 3,200, plus two higher settings: H1 is equivalent to ISO 6,400 and H2 takes the camera to 12,800.

The review noted, “Its high frame rate, 14-bit A/D conversion, high-resolution LCD, and high-ISO are the Canon 50D’s most important features, with the high-resolution sensor coming in behind that.” The review said the 50D, with its new 15.1-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, helped Canon catch up with the Nikon D300.

Four photographers – Shawn Barnett, Dave Etchells, Mike Tomkins, Zig Weidelich, and Andrew Alexander – collaborated to write a full review of the Canon EOS 50D which has been posted on their website.
