AFFORDABLE EXPERTISE FOR BEGINNERS Diamond review

Advantagesexcellent range of functions, easy to use for the beginner, ideal also for more advanced users

Disadvantagesdon't be put off by the fact it's a 'proper' camera

"...I get way off topic... ...The Canon EOS 50 is one of a range of Cameras that top manufacturer Canon produced for the mass market. Look at any top sports meeting, celebrity bash or news event and all the Press snappers will be using either Canon or Nikon equipment – and I mean that’s not an ‘if or a maybe’ it will be one or the other. No other company is close – Professionals TRUST Canon and Nikon. “But aren’t they really awkward things to use? ..." Read review

Canon can, and so can you

AdvantagesCanon quality; range of lenses available; good features

DisadvantagesFilm - going the way of the dinosaur

"...bought this with a 35-80mm Canon USM lens and later bought a 35-300mm Tamron lens to enable all shots from one lens. Reliability ------------- Had this for years now with not a thing wrong. Excellent build despite plastic parts in some places. Pictures ------------ Leave it on auto and 99% of all shots will be infocus and correctly exposed. It struggles with bright backgrounds on darker subjects so you have to learn to spot this and correct ..." Read review

EOS 50e: A very capable camera

AdvantagesEye control, ease of use

DisadvantagesFixed focal length built in flash

"...several years ago with a Canon 28-80 zoom lens as a replacement for a fully manual Practica SLR. One of the main selling points at the time was the eye controlled auto focus. This enables the camera to sense which of three focus points your eye is looking at and focus accordingly. The eye-control works extremely well and operates with the camera in the horizontal or vertical position. Once calibrated to your eye it is usually quicker than manually ..." Read review

The Ultimate Starter SLR

AdvantagesTons of features, easy operation, top quality build.

DisadvantagesOlder model.

"...often sold with the standard Canon 28-80mm lense and the usual accessories, and that's what I ended up with. Features include all the expected Canon goodies, with 3-point focusing being the only feature that falls short of today's standards. The controls are perfect - the dual wheels for controlling aperature and speed are placed perfectly and make manual operation a joy. All the automatic settings work so well that I often find myself guilty of letting ..." Read review

Review

AdvantagesLens Backup. Build Quality. Eye Controlled Focus...

DisadvantagesC**p Evaluative metering

"I have used this camera for 2 years as a semi-pro photographer. I went to a residential course last year and had perfect exposures in all 36 transparencies of 10 films (unlike some of the students with > £1000 cameras). I cannot recommend this camera enough for anyone who is considered taking up photography seriously. The eye-control focus is very easy to use and very helpful (if for speed of focusing only.) It has all the features I think you need ..." Read review

DisadvantagesNever met any

"...pro photographer that posess the canon eos mk 3 and the canon eos 400d as a general back up.The canon eos 50e will take pride of place in my equipment arsenal as a film camera. I have had this camera for several years and some of my work from this has been exhibited.I like the overall design,ease of use and the robust feel.It has travelled extensively also with me. I agree with the other reviews that the battery grip is a must as it really gives ..." Read review

Canon EOS 50E 35mm SLR Camera

AdvantagesCanon EOS 50E 35mm SLR Camera System

Disadvantages.

"...camera to be used vertically. The Canon EOS-50/50E/Elan II/IIE QD carries many basic features inherited from previous model of EOS-100/Elan plus many MORE... One of the major difference, other than camera functions is the designing concept of the camera body. As compared with its predecessor, the camera looks good and more sleek in its body contour and the layout of control is more trending towards back to older days of dials design instead of ..."
