    Canon Eos 500D + EF-S 18-55mm f / 3.5-5.6 IS Lens + EF-S 55-250mm f / 4-5.6 IS Lens Updated Nov 15, 2010: New Arrival The Device Generation large sensor requires us to review the ratings of some devices. The EOS 500D thus passes 4 stars, its slowness in Live View is more severely noted. UPDATE 05/27/09: After taking over the pre-production EOS 500D, we received a final model of the case. Than reiterate some tests and complete our handling. In the end, the differences are minimal and the quality of the images identical. The firmware update has corrected (in part) the bugs in the autofocus, which is much more accurate and reliable. With the 500D, Canon strengthens its mid-range SLR offering by offering a well-built body with a 15 Mpix CMOS sensor ( current best definition in an APS-C sensor), a beautiful 3-inch 920,000-dot display, and a 1080-pixel video mode. We were able to test a pre-series model. While no definitive conclusions can be drawn, this grip offers a good overview of the 500D's capabilities. The 500D is undeniably reminiscent of Canon's 450D SLR: the chassis is identical, the proportions practically similar, but the construction materials are more qualitative. If the 450D was a bit "light", the 500D presents better and is more serious. You will especially appreciate the new coating on the handle, much more comfortable, which ensures a better grip. In general, the interface has hardly changed. The controls are identical, although there are some changes. Thus, the white balance control joins the adjustment clover and leaves its place for video recording. Thanks to the exposure mode selection barrel, you can easily activate the video mode. Changes that make using DSLR and video more intuitive. More significant changes would have been welcome, such as the presence of a second adjustment wheel at the rear of the case. You will find the ISO button on the front of the handle that allows you to quickly adapt to the ambient light, even if its access is not the easiest. Also note the arrival of the CA (Creative Auto) mode which allows you to adjust the depth of field on the screen (a kind of graphical interface in aperture priority and exposure compensation mode). is present, its definition of 920,000 dots (640x480 pixel VGA screen) is much more comfortable. The menus are noticeably more legible and the rendering of the images is actually more advantageous. Two presence detectors automatically turn off the screen when approaching the face so as not to disturb the aim. The aim is nice. The penta-mirror is relatively bright and the 0.87x magnification is comfortable. No modification of the autofocus system. Use the 9-point AF module. We noticed some flaws in the autofocus on the older model. This final version turns out to be much more reliable, but not without its problems. Also in our scenario, the autofocus sometimes struggled to get a sharp image. Unfortunately, focusing in LiveView mode is not much faster than previous models (EOS 450D, EOS 50D and EOS 5D Mark II). Despite the presence of face detection, contrast detection AF is too slow for everyday use and will reveal its full potential in the studio. In phase detection AF mode, the 500D is responsive and pretty good in low light. Overall, the 500D responds very well: Power-up is almost instantaneous, and despite the noticeable increase in sensor definition, Burst mode offers a 3.4 fps frame rate. Image quality The sensor of the 500D is not quite equivalent to the one that equips the 50D. The latter is faster and has a more capable microlens array, but the images from the 500D are quite convincing. Electronic noise is particularly well managed up to 1600 ISO and images can be used perfectly at 3200 ISO. However, the two highest values ​​(6400 and 12800 ISO) are more delicate with pronounced speckling and more aberrant pixels. However, we will appreciate these high sensitivities in extreme cases with very low light and a treatment in black & amp; amp; white will be much more rewarding. The 15 Mpix definition is still mostly a marketing argument and in practice this definition is sometimes restrictive. Jpeg files are quite large (4-11MB) and Raw files particularly demanding (15-30MB). We regret that Canon does not offer the files in the sRaw version. Raw files are saved in 14 bits. In theory, we should win in the delicacy of the representations. In practice, the gain is not easy to highlight in classic shots. Despite a fairly reliable exposure system, you will also appreciate the automatic brightness correction function that allows you to balance photos (more detail in dark areas) at the expense of a very slight loss of contrast. & amp; nbsp; The optics delivered as a kit (here an 18-55mm f / 3.5-5.6 IS) are already known. It is already supplied with the 450D and is excellent value for money. The sharpness is quality and the optical stabilization very powerful. The EOS 500D offers automatic vignetting correction (many lenses are recognized by the camera), but for now Canon does not correct for known chromatic aberrations or distortions of the optics. Finally, the last point that may be important is the Canon EOS 500D comes with a complete software package to process RAW files, control the camera remotely or order images HD Video at 20 fps One of the new features expected from the Canon EOS 500D is, of course. Full HD video mode at 1920x1080 pixels. Still, this characteristic leaves a slightly bitter taste. In fact, the processing processor does not allow a speed greater than 20 fps with this definition (why not have pushed at least 24 fps?). & amp; Nbsp; In the
