Canon EOS Digital Camera

[easyazon-block asin="B002NEGTU6" align="center"]

The Canon Electro-Optical System (EOS) autofocus 35 mm film and digital SLR camera system was first introduced in 1987. Twenty plus years have come and gone and the Canon EOS Digital Camera has gone a long way since. One proof to its going a long way is the fact that the EOS is still in production. The EOS primarily competes directly with the Nikon F series. The Canon EOS 50D is one of the EOS series’ greatest competitors. Almost a year after the arrival of the EOS 40D, the much anticipated EOS 50D, an upgraded version of the 40D, was introduced in 2008.

On the surface, the 50D looks almost similar to the 40D. A few significant improvements are readily noticeable, however. Among these are the 15 megapixel CMOS sensor, a faster DIGIC 4 processor, additional measures to eliminate dust on the sensor, and a face detection of up to 35 faces in Live View Mode and a Creative Auto Mode for automatic focus and exposure. The jump from 40D to 50D is proof to Canon’s recent history of releasing new models every 18 months-or-so. The new 15 megapixel sensor’s design means that despite the higher resolution, Canon claims that image noise has improved.

The 50D’s target market range from serious amateur to semi-professional photographers (the same target as that of its predecessors, the 20D, 30D and 40D). And like its predecessors, it can be used in fully automatic point and shoot mode or anything between this mode and complete manual mode. The Canon EOS 50D is a mature product, with years of technological advancement already put into it. The 50D already has most of the features needed by even a seasoned professional photographer. With its body-only retail value of US$1,399, the Canon EOS 50D is surely a competitor.
