The PhotographyBlog published a review of the new Canon EOS 50D SLR camera. The Canon 50D is one of our Top 100 Holiday Gift Tips for 2008.
The Canon 50D sports a high resolution of 15.1MP amongst other great features.
Quote from the review: "The Canon EOS 50D is outwardly almost identical to its predecessor, the EOS 40D, having the same dimensions (145.5 x 107.8 x 73.5mm), and weighing 10g less at 730g without a lens fitted. Where cheaper entry-level DSLR cameras use plastics, the 50D has a magnesium alloy body which should make it more durable in the long term. The finish seems tough and resilient too, and the memory card and battery doors are dust and moisture resistant, making the 50D potentially better suited to hostile environments, whether they're encountered on a photo shoot in the Himalayas or a trip to the seaside. There's a textured area on both the deep hand-grip and around the thumb-rest on the rear of the camera, and unlike the cheaper 450D and 1000D models, this camera is perfect for everyone with normal to large-sized hands. The most obvious external differences between the 5D and the 40D are the addition of a HDMI port on the left of the body, the top of the mode dial is silver rather than black, and there's a much brighter, higher-resolution LCD screen on the rear (offering 4x the resolution of the 40D's screen)."
