“Broke after only 2 years of amature use”

Written on: 19/07/2013

Bought my Canon 50d New from Jessopps (now gone bust) and after only 2 years of light amature use and 16000 exposure the camera has developed the dreaded ERR01 error and had to be sent away for repair costing over £200. I only used L lenses on the body and my 6 year old 400d is still working fine after alot more ecposures. Canon rate the camera to 100k exposure so to break after only 16k is not good. 16% life. Photo quality wise and speed is good but with the L lenes i have i wouldn't expect… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/03/2010 by METHUSALA (17 reviews written)

I'm an experienced photographer, both as an amateur and a professional, and I've used cameras from all the big brands (so I'm not biased).

I use a Canon EOS 1Ds III for my work, but it's too heavy and too limited outside the studio, so I wanted another Canon body that was more portable which I could still use my other Canon lenses with - enter the Canon EOS 50D.

Image quality is great with the right lenses, and the resolution is sufficient to allow substantial cropping of the image if… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/02/2010 by msw109 (1 review written)

The 50D is a great camera with easy to use menus and great feel when in the hand. it is robust, well waterproofed and the 920,000 pixel 3" screen gives class leading playback of shots. All canon lenses are compatible with it and also there is a good range of third party manufacturers making compatible lenses too. The only drawback i have found is that because the sensor is "pixel hungry", average lenses will struggle to bring out the best in it. Having used "L" series glass and standard glass… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/08/2009 by wo0 (2 reviews written)

After using both the Canon 400D and 30D for 18 months each, I got the Canon 50D as a gift and it is amazing. The screen is bigger with better resolution. You have the nifty live view for crowd shots and the delete all button has been removed, so you can't accidentally delete all of your pics! The menu is easy to navigate and the body is comfortable to hold. I can't think of anything bad about this camera yet. Thanks Canon!… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/11/2008 by reyroe (2 reviews written)

Canon 50D review - I have been using multiple SLR cameras before, have always boast on using the old school manual SLR for classic photography but professional photography I had to use digital SLR and can't do it without my Canon. Have used other brands but Canon survived my lifestyle. Did some upgrade and I never was disappointed with any of them. Canon is still my brand… Read Full Review

Hey, really thankful for the reviews.
<br/>
<br/>Earlier I am really stick with Panasonic Brand but now I am rethinking as I found really good reviews for Canon.
<br/>
<br/>Furthermore, I would like to share some views too about this site. I just love this site as I have checked the reviews for the products & even I can compare the products & this site also having product websites listings which are good at all.
<br/>
<br/>I don't need to search the websites as reviewcenter providing good facility for comparing the products.
