    Outstanding but takes some learning

    When I first picked up the 50D I was delighted with the beautiful LCD - instant want! Upon receiving the camera, I went out and shot quite a few pictures. Looked great. Then I started using under different lighting, uses, and became very unhappy. THis camera takes more learning than the 40D in my opinion. I actually use the custom functions on the 50D--never bothered with the 40D. Noise is definitely a factor here and I was unhappy until I realized I was causing the noise with my shooting techniques. The 50D requires you to actually use some skill. Great camera - focusing is exceptional, much better than my 40D. Image quality is outstanding. Love the way the camera feels in my hand; slight but important difference. LOVE the new LCD - for this alone I would keep this camera. Enjoy the added MPs to give me more cropping room. I have printed very large photos with satisfaction. cons: more noise if you do not use proper techniques; this camera shows up faults in lower quality lens.

    A Real Nice Step Up From 30D

    I have owned the D30, 30D and now the 50D and really am pleased with the 50D. The settings in view finder are easier to see and I like seeing the iso. The LCD display is bright and clear, the controls (Quick Control, Multi-Controller, the setting buttons) all act similar enough to the 30D that learning curve is proving to be short. I really enjoy the Live View for my stills, landscapes and architecture shots, especially the zoom manual focus for needle sharp focusing. (Live View does seem to really eat battery power). The 6 fps speed is wonderful, but the improved performance at high iso (1600 and 3200) is one of the biggest plus features for me. The 50D way out performs my 30D there. Picture quality seems great and the flexibilty to shoot different size raw files comes in handy when shooting sports or action shots where I take a lot of frames, this option saves CF Card space. The new menu structure seems easier and I seem to be using the Multi Controller button more effectively. Very nice indeed.

    After using friends' Canon DSLRs, I decided to FINALLY break down and purchase one. Having never used a 50D before, I was a little hesitant (used plenty of Rebels, couple late model Marks). Man am I glad I decided to grab it. Menu of course is intuitive, easy to use, and easy to navigate- of course it's basically the same as any other canon menu :) I generally shoot either in AV or TV (or manual when shooting macro) and the quality that I get is PHENOMENAL! Most of my "serious" shooting is either macro or landscape. The b/w shooting mode is superb as well and the photos need very little adjustment in post processing (I generally shoot in RAW). I really could go on and on, but you'd get tired of reading... I have nothing negative to say. To those who use cost as a con- price vs quality on this model is incredibly good. You get what you pay for, and in my opinion, the quality is more like what you would get if you spent double, if that makes sense. THANK YOU, CANON!!

    This is an upgrade from a another upscale brand camera (not an SLR) that I bought when the 5 Mega pixels first came out. The best recommendation I can give is this--I showed my new Canon to my Brother-in Law, a professional photographer.--He had seen the 50D but was going to wait a while to buy one since he bought another brand camera a short time ago. After seeing mine...He ordered one over the internet within a couple of days. I have gone from 5 Megapixels to 15+. and that is just the beginning. I had used a pretty a decent nonprofessional type camera that was pretty slow in a lot of respects---and now I am using a very sophisticated Canon SLR that will run circles around the old one. I am a professional artist not a professional photographer. Even though I have only had the Cannon about two weeks and still on a huge learning curve--it is still simple enough to use the Auto and other features that allow me to use it with confidence while learning the finer points.

    As a retired computer dinosaur, I decided to return to a hobby I had as a teen. My biggest apprehension was the computerized digital age of photography. So far I have been very pleased with the instructions in the owner's manual, as supplemented by an after market book on the 50D and a 12 hour course at our community college. The 50D is proving to be fairly straight forward as I take small steps. It will be a snap for cmptr literate users. The camera produces outstanding results with the 28-135 kit lens and 70-200 2.8L. I purchased the camera primarily to shoot birds and wildlife as well as family use. The 6fps burst has proven very useful, as have the AV, TV and manual modes. I have taken 2500+ photos. The best have been amazing considering my inexperience. The substandard have all been due to poor technique. The large bright LCD is a big plus and provides instant feedback for corrections. My film SLR is Canon and I will definitly stay with Canon products.

    I've owned the D30, 20D, Rebel XT, 40D, XSi, 1D IIn and now the 50D. All were and are excellent cameras in my opinion. And each represents a step ahead of what was in the line before it. The image quality of the 50D sets it apart from any of the cameras I've owned before it. It's high ISO quality is outstanding and does as claimed, represent at least a full stop improvement over any Canon camera before it. It is very similar to the 40D in all controls, so it's completely easy to switch from one to the other. The motordrive is fast enough for action. The 'My Menu' is excellent for making quick adjustments to menu items that used to have been dug out of too many menu options. For instance, mirror lock up is very easily accessed now. The viewfinder seems very good. My only real complaint is the top control dial. It needs a lock to prevent it from shifting. Aside from that one small complaint, the 50D is an excellent camera in it's price range.

    What a step up from my XTi, this camera just rocks. It doesn't feel like a toy, yet fits the hands perfectly. The accessory grip should be standard as the controls for portrait orientation feel perfect on the grip but otherwise... the camera simply has that great feel about it. I love the speed with the faster cards, love the 14bit files, love the fact if I'm in trouble or missed something the files can actually be cropped, love the LCD and the weather sealing. Things I don't like... AEB buried in menu and very limiting, a print button in this day and age (who prints directly from a d-slr???), the camera is VERY hard on non-L lenses whereas my XTi produces better images with the standard every day lenses and lastly is the Live View which I've never used but I use it on my point and shoot so maybe someone can find a use for it (I haven't on the d-slr but have on the P&S). No regrets, AWESOME camera and if the 50D had off-camera lighting controls like the competition had at the time (now Canon has it with the 7D) I'd be in heaven.

    This is my second DSLR and I really enjoy this purchase. I am blown away by the rocking performance. I started learning DSLR photography for about an year. Especially once I saw the pictures from this camera, I wanted to learn the photography to get 100% out of this camera features, amazing quality. My wife is using the DSLR first time and she feels very easy to take the picture with the standard functions, she loves the quality. Ofcourse she complaints the heaviness. I am using this for the fast two weeks, trying to learn the capabilities which are many. I love the resolution on the LCD and the fast FPS are great to capture my kids dances, sports and their each moment, particularly my little ones. Though it costs bit more, I never regret of this purchase. I am thinking to purchase the L series lens once I lget good hold on the camera features. I strongly recommend this product even for the starters (like me). It will rock, you love it .

    Just too much noise

    Customer review by MW

    The specs on the 50D look good, but after using it for a while now, it has been a total disappointment. The problem is noise. The 50D does not compare favorably to other cameras in its class or to its predecessors (like the 40D). The recent firmware release (version 1.0.6) seemed to help with a really severe vertical banding problem in low light situations. Until I bought the 50D I would not have imagined Canon making a camera with banding problems. My 40D outperforms the 50D at virtually all speeds and it is significantly better with noise at ISO ratings above 400. And my 30D out performs the 50D at ISO 800 and 1000 for noise (and yes, I recognize there is a big difference in pixel density,etc.). Unless you really have to have the 15megapixels I strongly suggest you buy the 40D. I also suspect the problems with the 50D are why the 40D is still being made and sold. I truly love Canon products, but the 50D just isn't worthy of the brand.

    I have been using old fasion film for years and with all the advancements with the digital cameras now a days i looked into it. In my search for the one for me the 50D caught my eye instantly. Looks great gives you a fine feel of the picture. Live view is an advanced mode to help you fine tune the picture. People comlain about focus problems and digital noise, but with the 50D i experiance no focus problems and was extremely pleased with the accuracy and speed of the focus. I havent seen any noise yet and dont expect to. All my photos have come out clear and sharp with 15.1 megapixles i wouldnt expect anything else. My favorite charactoristic with the 50D is the simpicity. I had never used a high tech digital camera before besides a simple point n shoot. It took me about 15 mins to understand the camera. maybe a few days to get all the settings down. Canon did well with this model a lil pricey but in digital you get what you pay for.
