Pros: I been working for four years with the Canon 50D and it had always worked perfectly in every light conditions. It follows me everywhere I go and it's really fast and easy to use. I particulary use it with a Canon 300mm f2.8 (first version) and the great Canon 180mm macro to have a better reach and I'm really satisfied by the results. I'll keep it as long as possible to enjoy Nature photography...
Cons: It becomes a bit old nowadays in comparaison with new bodies but it had never disapointed me...I use also the Canon 5D Mark II and I must admit the image quality is a bit under...sometimes !!!
Opinion: The Canon 50D is my best friend during many years and it still works everytime I need it ! I use it with serie L lenses and APS-C lenses and it does a great job ! I hope you will have a body like this one in your photobag...The choice of using Canon bodies is the best I did ! (Nikon and others are surely great too but I have never regret my Canon...). Greetings.
The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Construction, Tropicalization reliability and ergonomics.
Cons:Little to say considering the age if you really have to report the non-modern liveview as nin the latest SLR but it is not a defect. High Estate Iso
Opinion:Bought used years ago and I was lucky enough to find it with very few shots about 100 so I was tempted to buy it. It was perfect with no signs of wear or I wouldn't have bought it. They had never even installed the shoulder strap. It was really lucky. I bought a batterygrip apart which is the same for 20d, 30d and 40d that I own. The 15 Mpixels are excellent and you can do some crop. At high iso you have to be careful, but from me it is mainly used at 100 iso for photos of landscapes on tripods. Also for action photos it is very valid and has a precise autofocus. Excellent construction type eos series 5 d or 7d. Better construction at sealing level therefore usable even in more critical climatic conditions than the 10d, 20d, 30d and 40d models which in any case are excellent for image quality although I must find an improvement in the dynamic range from the nodes of the eos 30d forward.
Pros:Bellina, small (for my hands), every check in the right place. Good construction. 1/8000. Joystick.
Cons:Considering the age, nothing, but to be pointy, lack according to slots for SD card (mounts only a cf).
Opinion:Purchased for a handful of euros from a user of the market, complete with original bg. Excellent ergonomics, good sensor that is not to be compared with today's machines, but that manages to churn out respectable files. I had his granddaughter 80D and I have to say it remained in my heart. The little auntie does not make me regret it as a second (third) body. It is also ideal for weekend releases, where it is appreciated for its low volumes compared to bodies pro type 5d Mk. III. Tested with older usm optics, it responds quickly with a lightning maf. With L optics it's at its best. Good burst that also allows a coveted use of sports or fauna. For me, I prefer portraits and landscapes, almost useless but appreciable that there is. By setting raw-jpeg and firing the burst, the buffer doesn't "full" too quickly to agree to use a quick-write card. I'll take her out very often, that's for sure.
Pros:Construction, ergonomics, reliability used price
Cons:Weight, high ISO seal, few AF points
Opinion:I bought this 50d coming from a 550d and wanting to look for a more durable, professional and therefore more advanced machine, at a ridiculously cheap price in the used market. Holding it in your hand you immediately notice a great robustness that, while being ergonomic, translates into a fairly important weight.. Considering the age it has, I presume that flaws such as few AF points, low shadows and half-lights and poor dynamic range and very poor tightness at high ISO are normal.. However I am considering selling it again to move on to something newer.. Conclusion, good as a school ship, sturdy solid and very reliable, at the price to which it is used is still difficult to find a new with the same characteristics, but has its limits dictated by age.
Cons:High ISO Hold-only CF slots-Autonomy-hard to tame Sensor
Opinion:I have this camera for a year and a half, purchased of course used. I Think that among the APSc Canon is still today the one that offers the best build quality. The camera body is that of a professional in all and for everything, almost identical to the 5d Mk2. The menus and functions are Also almost the same. It is a machine that is satisfying even to hold it in your hand. In My opinion it is also very ergonomic and not too bulky. Defects... A few AF points, but they work fine. It also Has the correction of the Microfocus for Lens, as well as other corrections for the optics. Low Battery Autonomy. ISO Tightness rather scarce, limited dynamic range (but it is of the 2008, there is) Talking about the sensor, its value is also its worst defect: the resolution. It's a high performance sensor in these terms... But only with very high quality optics. With economic Optics Returns files rather soft, and for the same reason is very inclined to the micro-blur, which is difficult to avoid even because of the poor tightness at high ISO, which imposes longer times of modern machines in Short, requires a nice handle, in Compensation remains a very nice iron even at the distance of 11 years
