'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.
'With its lightning speed and gorgeous images, there's not much to complain about with the Canon EOS 50D—especially if you already own compatible lenses. '
'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. '
'It's an ideal model for the mid-range to advanced DSLR user -- but it's also a very forgiving camera to better your craft on. '
'Once focused, shot-to-shot time typically takes about 0.4 second for RAW or JPEG, and adding flash recycling time bumps it to only 0.7 second, which is very good for any class. '
'The 12.2-megapixel Canon Digital Rebel XSi, which targets entry-level digital SLR shooters , has all the features that novices expect--as well as an alluring array of advanced options that will appeal to more seasoned photographers. '
'A more sensitive cross-type AF sensor has been employed in the centre of the diamond-shaped nine-point array, but we noticed some focus inaccuracies at the wider end using the new 18-55mm IS kit zoom. '
'the Canon EOS 450D comes as a welcome change, and a model worthy of upgrading from your old 350D .'
