'Without more control, Art Filters will remain a novelty for this class of camera.'
'Its foundation comprises a sturdy body design that feels comfortable in the hand; a swing-out 2.7-inch LCD, 12.3-megapixel image sensor (providing plenty of resolution for 13-by-19-inch prints); and sensor-based image stabilisation.'
'No movie mode.'
'Its cord was ridiculously short, meaning that the battery was left dangling off the power point.'
'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.'
'At ISO 3,200 the grain pattern and chroma noise become quite prominent in the darker areas, and at ISO 6,400, chroma noise and the effects of heavy noise reduction obliterate much of the finer details.'
