'I love how small and lightweight it is but still find it too slow--the maximum aperture of f/3.5 simply doesn't let in enough light and doesn't allow for a shallow enough depth of field for my purposes.'
'The T1i can capture video at 1080p, but that's at 20 frames per second, rather than at 24, 30, or 60 fpsâ??which is what's required for the video to look truly fluid. 720p30 video captured on the T1i is more natural-looking than 1080p20 video.'
'And while the screen does show very fine detail, it's still not good enough for assessing subtle focus problems.'
'But it's missing the vegetables, like an improved AF system, smaller spot meter, better viewfinder coverage, and customizable boundaries for shutter speed and aperture, which might have pushed it from compelling to must have.'
'Like many midrange D-SLRs, the 50D is by no means dead simple to operate: You'll need to do a lot of leafing through the manual to take full advantage of its many features.'
'One much-needed improvement: The 3-inch VGA LCD screen has a 920,000-dots-per-inch resolution--a big boost over the 230,000-pixel LCD of the 40D.'
'Depending on your shooting situation, the in-built flash often has trouble reaching over the lens and illuminating the entire frame -- shadowing is sometimes a problem when the flash bounces off surrounding surfaces.'
