Canon EOS 500D Twin Lens kit
The Canon EOS 500D Twin Lens kit includes an EOS 500D body with the EF S 18-55mmf3.5-5.6 IS lens and the EIS F S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 lens making it a great solution for the semi pro photographer. Able to shoot full HD and stills, this is a versatile DSLR for the photo enthusiast.
The EOS 500D features a 15.1 megapixel CMOS sensor and Canon’s patented DiG!C 4 Image Processor to deliver superior image quality in true to life colour. Thanks to features such as Live View via the 3 inch (920,000 dot) screen, framing your shot has never been simpler and onboard elements like Face Detection make shooting portraits a snap.
The 9 point AF mode and 6 point Assist AF deliver sharp images and you can manually override the AF to ensure your focus is as sharp as you want it. Able to shoot at 3.4 frames per second the EOS 500D makes a great addition to the sports enthusiast’s kit, the 0.1 second start up makes firing up and shooting spontaneous photos a snap.
Automatic image correction tools (Auto Lighting Optimizer and Peripheral illumination correction) allow the less experienced shooter to deliver professional shots.
Bad: Not that much different to its predecessor the 450D – apart just entering from a higher pixel rate. So if you are just entering the DSLR market you may want to check out the 450D as it will be cheaper with similar features.
