'Colours are vivid, while the large size means you can crop effectively without loosing detail and at a number of different settings both inside and out we were very happy with the camera's performance.'
'focus and reviewing images will be difficult, as the S710 doesn't have an optical viewfinder.'
'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.'
