Hey! You should know that Canon has released a newer version of this product: the Canon EOS 60D.

Canon EOS 50D

We've given the 50D a grade of B-.

Editor's Review

The Canon 50D is still a solid pro-sumer dSLR, but it's now about two years old and lacks many of the features that make more recent dSLRs desirable, like HD video. If you have your heart set on a Canon dSLR, we suggest that you also take a look at the newer 60D.

50D just purchased (Landon — 07/28/2009)

Just got it and can't believe how easy it is - and I have no picture taking skills. The pics exceed every expectation. It looks like they were taken professionally. I bought it for an upcoming vacation and it was worth every cent!

50D (m chasey — 03/18/2009)

Purchased for a game trip to Tanzania/Serengeti. 2000 photos later it is the easiest camera to use I have ever owned. Battery life is wonderful and the weight is good even with a 500 lens attached.
I am a Canon fanatic and this is certainly the best camera for the money available and best I have owned.

Very Impressed (Gretta Benfield — 02/15/2009)

The 50d is my first digital SLR camera. I find it very easy to use. The LCD screen is great to review pictures. however I find that photos that are under exposed on the camera's screen actually seem to be correctly exprosed on my computer screen. Overall I'm expreemly happy with the camera. I'm glad I waited until the 50d was released. instead of buying an 40d.

LOVE IT BUT (SHERI — 12/09/2008)

I love this camera. I just need to know how to change the resolution on it for better quality prints.

Can't Believe This Camera (Sally Brown — 11/30/2008)

All I can say is WOW, I'm so glad it's MINE. What an improvement in LCD information and screens. Easy to use, and very fast focusing and very creative. Couldn't ask for a better camera. I LOVE IT!

All I can Say is WOW! (John — 11/02/2008)

I have taken about 1,000 pictures in 2 days. First day I used ISO 3200 w/strong noise reduction inside at a Vollyball Game. 8x10 print excellent!! Next day I shot 2 Football Games with Poor Lighting! used ISO 6400, was a little worried. 8x10 came out fine! Not perfect..but very useable! ISO 3200 Excellent!!!!ISO 6400 very useable!! ISO 12800 don't know?? I do use all L lenses which probably helps. I would use ISO 6400 at Games if need be without hesitating but would prefer using 3200 for quality prints. If you need ISO 6400 then the lighting is obviously too poor to be expecting too much! Very happy with the 50D, having owned 3-20d's and 3-40d's I have never been so wowed by a camera before now!! Don't get me wrong I still have 3-40d's and will keep them for working!

Canon 50D (william deblase — 10/03/2008)

As an owner of the 20D and am real impressed with my pictures the thought of 15 mp was to much to resist. (and I have not been disiapointed) I am not a professional photographer but have been doing photography since i was 12 years old (black and white) (63 now)

The 50D is all I expected it to be and do. Was impressed with it in every way so far. have taken over 100 pictures on it so far since yesterday. Have reviewed them on my 36 inch hdmi tv and as one review i read said wow...

I might of upgraded to the 30 or 40 when they came out but didnt think that spending that money on them was worth it, now with the 50d and 15 mp and great pictures my spending was well worth it upgrade to me..

ps anyone need a used 20d lol
