Review Canon EOS 500D / Canon EOS Rebel T1i

In 2009, Canon launched the latest variant in the entry-level class that is the EOS 500D. Canon EOS 500D is positioned as the successor and the successor EOS 450D which has been aged about one tahun.Tak just forward it, the EOS 500D also offers quite a lot of new features that make it interesting. Like the other new digital SLR camera in 2009, the EOS 500D also includes a live-view feature in it. In addition, this camera to be one of several memerkenalkan DSLR cameras feature video recording. Canon EOS 500D is still a physical form similar to previous series such as the EOS 1000D and EOS 450D.

All parts of body using plastic material. Grip the camera is also quite comfortable even though it feels a bit small for those big-handed. To establish a grip on the grip, this camera has a rubber layer attached to the front grip and the back of the place put a thumb.

Rubber layer is quite comfortable and not slippery when used. Its weight is around 480 grams (without lens) fairly light and not tiring when used in a long time. On the back there are four-way button and other buttons. Four-way button functions as navigation in the menus as well as a shortcut key to perform some vital settings (such as white balance settings, shot mode, auto focus, and picture style).

At the top, there is a jog dial to adjust exposure, a button to set the ISO, and the dial button to set the shooting mode. There are several automatic and manual scene mode. Like other Canon DSLR cameras, the EOS 500D is also equipped with a CMOS sensor APS-C format. But not just any old pair sensor, Canon's new technology to immerse and refresher on the sensor EOS 500D. This camera resolution increased to 15 megapixels (compared to the EOS 450D which only has 12 megapixels). Resolution of the same image resolution which is owned by the EOS 50D in the middle class. In addition, the EOS 500D is also using the latest image processing technology which is Canon's DIGIC 4.

EOS 500D offers a wider choice of sensitivity compared to previous series. Now the EOS 500D provides a selection of ISO 3200. Sensitivity was still increased two levels again become the equivalent of ISO 6400 and ISO 12800. This is helpful when users are in low light conditions without flash. The camera that uses SD / SDHC as storage media can take pictures in JPEG, RAW, or even both at once. To repair a dynamic range in an image, there are features of Auto Lighting Optimizer that has several settings options. But unfortunately, the EOS 500D is left behind in the affairs of retouching on the camera. This product does not provide various featurekreatif to do retouching on the photo.

Like the other new digital SLR camera, Canon EOS 500D also provides a live-view feature. 3-inch screen size with high resolution helps the user when taking pictures in the live-view mode. But unfortunately autofokusnya performance is still fairly slow in finding a focus. In addition to the live-view, large LCD screen can also be used to record video. Canon EOS 500D can record HD video with resolution up to 1920x1080 with a frame-rate is only 20 fps. Frame rate 30 fps new-found when you record at a resolution of 1280x720. One thing that became our wedge is the screen that was fixed. Yes, the big screen can not be folded to help when taking pictures in difficult corners.

As a successor of the EOS 450D, EOS 500D offers enhanced features and Technology That Could be Considered satisfactory. Enhanced resolution to 15 megapixels, the latest DIGIC 4 image processor, ISO sensitivity is three steps higher, high-definition video features, as well as Some other additional features is an attractive bid.

Not only offers the features, this camera Also has a very good picture quality. Especially if combined with good quality lenses as well. Its dynamic range was Also Quite good. We found no Signs of excessive clipping the highlights on this camera. Generated noise at high ISO was Fairly minimal.

We get the images with minimal noise, even though the photo was made at ISO 3200. As the Youngest member of the Canon EOS line of digital cameras in entry-level class, the EOS 500D is a very interesting show with a performance and feature a tempting offer.
