Canon today on 26th August, 2008 officially announced the arrival of the much-awaited SLR camera, EOS 50D. The specifications would surely make any photographer drool over this wonderful tool which is a sure shot weapon in capable hands.
Canon EOS 50D brings forth the innovative technology of DIGIC 4 chip for faster processing, 6.3 fps upto 90 JPEGs using UDMA CF cards, and 60 consecutive JPEGs or 16 RAW using standard CF cards. 50D has a new 15.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor with improved noise reduction, wide range ISO 100-3200(H1: 6400, H2:12800) and a 14-bit conversion for smooth color tones and gradations.
This next generation DIGIC 4 Image Processor offers finer details and even more natural color reproduction, compared with the previous DIGIC III Image Processor. Since Canon’s DIGIC 4 chips use advanced signal processing technologies, they provide even faster operations, including write times to UDMA cards. It also enables Face Detection Live mode to detect and focus up to 35 face(s) to capture the best possible shot. Further, DIGIC 4 offers the improved Auto Lighting Optimizer that corrects brightness and contrast automatically, and Peripheral Illumination Correction for up to 40 EF lenses. DIGIC always maximizes performance between the capturing and recording stages of digital photography.
