Thoughts on the Canon 50D

September 16, 2008

The newly-announced (estimated early October as far as I can tell) Canon 50D looks pretty impressive.  Canon has been quickly falling behind Nikon in the upper models, but the 50D looks like it’ll be enough to keep some Canon shooters in the Canon camp for a while.   There’s a nice preview up on DPReview.com.


  • New CMOS sensor with DIGIC 4 processor
  • Gapless micro-lenses on the sensor
  • 920k pixel LCD
  • Cool new interface to the camera features
  • New high-ISO modes

Amazon mentions that is captures to SD cards, that’s not correct.  Other sites mention it’s still on Compact Flash.

Canon 5D Successor Coming ?

A new version of the Canon 5D appears to be coming as well as in this teaser on the Canon site.



  1. According to Canon it will be CF not SD.

  2. From Canon web sight the 50D uses CF not SD.
