Canon EOS 50D video tour

We're pleased to present a short video tour of the Canon EOS 50D. This demonstrates the 50D's design, controls, continuous shooting, live view and PC remote control systems.

There's no need to download any new software - just press the play button in the middle of the screen below and wait for the video to start; you may need to press the button twice. The quality and any delay before playing may vary depending on your internet connection.

Good points

High resolution which matches 40D’s noise.
Quick handling and continuous shooting.
VGA screen with Live View & HDMI.
AF micro-adjust and vignette correction.

Bad points
Needs decent optics to exploit resolution.
Face detection impractical due to slow AF.
Auto Lighting Optimizer unremarkable.
Lacking movie mode.
