Canon EOS 50D Features, Images Quality and Specifications

Almost exactly annually after the style of the EOS 40D, Canon has declared the 50D, which we’re confident will be a sister-model, rather than an alternative. The past has seen Canon launch new designs every 18 months-or-so but it’s been a active season with beginners such as the Nikon D300 getting a lot of interest in the 40D’s keen-amateur/professional section. The 50D is actually a 40D whole body covered around a newly-developed 15 mega-pixel indicator that lastly rectifies the scenario in which The canon eos XXD variety trailed their entry-level range, in pixel conditions. Canon is declaring that the new sensor’s style (new production procedures, remodeled picture diodes and small lenses) mean that despite the greater quality picture disturbance has enhanced, something we’ll be placing to quality later.

The other big modify is the addition of a new, high-resolution LCD display. 920,000 spots mean that it can express 640 x 480 RGB p, creating it successfully a VGA conventional observe. Three anti-reflection levels included in the display do their best to keep it useful in shiny circumstances, There are various other changes and included functions, with many of them arising from the first overall look of the The canon eos Digic 4 processer. The key variations between the 50D and 40D are specific below.

The modify on the top side of you is a logo saying 50D, rather than 40D, and in fact a more specific look around you doesn’t give many more signs. The top of the method switch is now gold, rather than strong greyish and features a new, ‘CA’ (Creative Auto), method. But there is another modify – and one we’re quite satisfied to see – the addition of a useful objective to the ‘direct print’ key. The much maligned create key now doubles-up to provide immediate access to live view.

The development and components percolate down from the past EOS x0D cameras, with a two piece mineral magnesium spend making up much of the front and back side of you. This time, however, Cannon says it has enhanced the production specifications, to ensure nearer shut-lines and a better protection against the sun and rain.

Lens Mount

The EOS 50D has a conventional steel EF / EF-S lens install which indicates that it facilitates all Canon EF and EF-S contacts plus suitable 3rd celebration contacts. Because the indicator has a more compact footprint than a 35 mm structure all contacts are topic to an area of perspective plants (sometimes known as central duration multiplier) of 1.6x, thus a 17 mm lens provides the same area of perspective as a 27.2 mm lens on 35 mm movie.

Internal flash

The EOS 50D features an E-TTL II pop-up display (same as the 40D, 30D and 20D), it has a information number of 13 (approx. 3.3 m @ 17 mm / 2.3 m @ 85 mm; ISO 100) and a wide position protection of 17 mm. Assistance for E-TTL II indicates that lens range details is now used to determine the required display energy. Flash synchronize rate is 1/250 sec.

External flash

The EOS 50D’s hot-shoe can be used with Canon and 3rd celebration display designs (sync only). As with the interior display the hot shoes facilitates E-TTL II metering which uses range details from the lens to determine display energy. This performs with all Canon contacts (although range details is only offered by contacts with band type USM motors). You’ll observe also the new climate closure encompass which performs together with the more recent 580EX II Speedlite.


The EOS 50D gets the 40D’s 0.95x zoom viewfinder. It’s perfectly developed, preventing distortions or area smooth. As with past designs the eyepiece rubberized is detachable considering the eyepiece cover or different eyepieces / tilted locators to be fixed.

Battery Compartment

The battery energy section on the EOS 50D is in the bottom of the side hold, behind a simple clip- closed entrance. The entrance itself is detachable (to make way for the optionally available battery energy grip). The EOS 50D is with the BP-511A Lithium-Ion battery energy power which provides 1390 mAh at 7.4 V (10.3 Wh). There’s a compact rubberized flap on the inside side of the side hold (nearest the lens mount), where the wire from the optionally available AC adapter’s phony battery energy leaves.

Canon EOS 50D Featrues

Image Style

The Image Designs can be thought of as being similar to different types of ‘film’, each one is made up of a overall tone bend, shade map (including varying hue responses) and conventional sharpness. You comes with six designed Image Designs but you can determine Image Designs yourself. An estimated conclusion of the available Image Designs are as follows (User definable 1-3 are ‘Standard’ by default).


The sharpness establishing of zero seems to be to mean ‘apply no improving at all’, hence this is picture as taken (soft because of the anti-alias filter). The common establishing for Standard Image Design is three, two for Image and four for Scenery.

Contrast adjustment

Adjusting the overall tone changes the design of the ‘S curve’ used to map the straight line picture information taken by the indicator into the appropriate gamma. A lower comparison establishing preserves more of the unique data’s powerful variety but creates a slimmer looking picture. A higher comparison establishing extends the black and white (dark to light) of picture and could result in cutting of both darkness details and features. The EOS 50D provides a variety of modification with nine actions from -4 to +4.

Saturation adjustment

Saturation modification allows you to control the durability of shade in the ultimate picture. At the -4 establishing you get quite a modest shade reaction but this could be useful for post-processing, anything above +2 can, based upon about them, result in shade route cutting.

Color overall tone (hue) adjustment

Color overall tone slightly adapts the hue of picture, a damaging establishing creates red shades appear more blue/purple, a good establishing creates them appear more yellow-colored.
