William, Darlington Point & shoot

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very solid build, lots of features and settings. My daughters college lecturers recommended this - she is a film & media graduate! Good recommendation as they should know what they are on about.
Bad points:
Heavy and a bit bulky. Not sure the shutter button is quite in the right place - this is a personal preference.

15.1 MP CMOS sensor

Ideal for those who want to create large, poster-size prints or crop images to perfection without losing any of the detail necessary for printing Canons 15.1MP CMOS sensor is outstanding in low light, and produces images with incredibly low noise.

Full HD movie recording

The EOS 500D combines exceptional still shooting with the ability to shoot Full HD (1080p) video. For occasions when larger amounts of footage need to be stored on a memory card, users can also choose to shoot at 720p or VGA resolution. An HDMI connection allows High Definition playback of footage and images on any HDTV.

High ISO for low light

When light levels fall, the EOS 500D offers an ISO range of up to 3200 expandable to 12800 for those environments where using flash is undesirable.

3.4fps with up to 170 JPEG burst

The EOS 500D features shooting speeds of up to 3.4fps in continuous bursts of up to 170 large JPEG images (9 RAW).

3.0 Clear View LCD with Live View mode

Detailed checks on images and video are possible with a 3.0 ClearView LCD screen, which features an ultra-high 920,000 dots for increased clarity. Switch to Live View mode and use the real-time visual feed to shoot from awkward angles.

9-point AF system

A high-precision AF system employs 9 AF points AF Points are located throughout the frame to better accommodate off-centre subjects. For accurate focusing with fast aperture lenses, the central AF point features a high sensitivity cross-type sensor, suitable for lenses with an aperture of f/2.8 or faster.

DIGIC 4

Canons DIGIC 4 processor works with the CMOS sensor to deliver 14-bit image processing, for smooth gradations and natural looking colours. DIGIC 4 also powers advanced Noise Reduction when shooting at higher ISO speeds, plus split-second startup times and near-instant image review after shooting.

EOS Integrated Cleaning System

Canons built-in dust prevention system offers three ways of guarding images against the effects of dust: reduction of internal dust generation; an in-camera sensor cleaning mechanism; and the ability to map stubborn dust sports for removal with the included

Digital Photo Professional software.

Full EF/EF-S and EX Speedlite compatibility

The EOS 500D is compatible with Canons full range of EF and EF-S lenses and EX-series Speedlites. This allows the creation of a shooting system as unique as the photographer using it.
