'The camera also sports a significantly redesigned weather-sealed body, and the new viewfinder has an LCD overlay for providing additional information, like an on-demand grid and electronic levels. and this is the first EOS dSLR to incorporate wireless flash. '
'Excellent still-image and HD-video quality.'
'And, unlike Canon's smaller consumer range the 450D or 500D , for instance the grip is practically sized for grown up hands, and feels like the body will be perfectly balanced paired with one of Canon's L-series telephoto lenses. '
'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.'
'Image stabilization in camera body.'
'Across all focal lengths its pictures were very sharp too, and we loved how the apertures were relatively wide for a telephoto.'
'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. '
'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.'
'broad, functional feature set'
'The A700's ISO 6400 setting isn't great -- there's a drop in exposure and color, and the whole image is pretty mottled.'
'The three apps are poorly integrated, and are a mishmash of the overly simple and overly complex.'
