In this review of the Canon 50d, the reviewer highlights the camera's outdated but still functional features. The 15.1 CMOS sensor and compatibility with EF-2 EFS lenses are praised for their performance, offering decent focus speed and reliability. The nine cross-type focus points and pentaprism viewfinder are also mentioned for their effectiveness. The camera's dust and water-resistant design is appreciated, as it ensures the longevity of the CF cards. The 3-inch LCD screen with 920k dots provides a good display for reviewing images. The image quality of the camera is commended, especially for the price point. The ISO options range from 100 to 3200, with expandability up to 12,800, although the reviewer notes that the higher ISOs may not be necessary for most users. The connectivity options, including microUSB, video in, and HDMI, are seen as positive features, particularly for connecting to modern high-quality TVs. The magnesium alloy body of the camera is remarked upon as a standout feature, as it is less common in modern cameras that are mainly made of plastic. Overall, the reviewer recommends the Canon 50d as an excellent choice for amateur to mid-level photographers, considering its price and quality. The reviewer expresses a willingness to provide more information in future videos and invites viewers to reach out for further inquiries.
