Canon EOS 1000D review

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Sunday 31st, August 2008

One of the first things you notice is how much the Canon EOS 1000D resembles its bigger brother, the EOS 450D. The 450D is slightly bigger but that's all. If however, you take a closer look and place both models side by side, you will notice some more differences, although still marginal. The fibre of the handgrip has been changed to a somewhat rougher fibre type, and the IR sensor is lacking. This sensor supports an IR remote control which is not available on the EOS 1000D. When we turn the camera around, we notice the main difference; the size of the monitor. Whereas the EOS 450D features a large sized 3 inch monitor, the owner of an EOS 1000D has to settle for a 2.5 inch version. Still not bad at all.

Canon EOS 50D

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Tuesday 26th, August 2008

Canon strengthens its EOS range with the addition of a powerful new digital SLR: the Canon EOS 50D / Canon EOS . With a 15.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor, 6.3 frames per second shooting and Canon’s latest DIGIC 4 image processor, the EOS 50D delivers unparalleled speed and resolution at a price point that is unique in today’s market. A newly designed 15.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor delivers ultra-detailed, low-noise images - ideal for large-scale reproduction or creative cropping. New manufacturing processes, plus redesigned photo diodes and microlenses, extend the light gathering capabilities of the sensor - allowing more pixels to be fitted on the CMOS sensor without compromising image quality.

Canon EOS 50D CMOS technology
Canon’s CMOS technology is one of the company’s key competitive advantages, with noise reduction circuitry at each pixel site delivering virtually noise-free images. In comparison with CCD technology, the lower power consumption characteristics of Canon’s CMOS sensors also contribute to longer battery life. Signal conversion in Canon’s CMOS sensors is handled by individual amplifiers at each pixel site. Unnecessary charge transfer operations are avoided, vastly speeding up the process of getting signal to the image processor. Noise generation is reduced, power consumption is limited and faster frame rate potential is increased.
