A 15.1 Mpix sensor, a screen 920000 pixels and Full HD video: EOS 500 d already looks like a future success.
It’s been a little while theEOS 450 d dominated the entry-level DSLR market, even if Nikon has a leading position year all DSLR segments combined.However to succeed a flagship model – and therefore to retain market share in a more competitive industry (and still growing) – there is no mystery: he takes out another lighthouse.
Canon introduced the package on his new baby, the 500 d which, by the way, expanding the range and is not a substitute, for the time being, his grandfather. Put the package it is, for the Japanese brand, add the photosites in the sensor: no less than 15 Mpix for this new case, be as far as the 50 d. If it was a compact it is suspicious: the sensors are smaller and it would be saving
the flagship argument ceases to be the number of megapixels. On SLR sighting devices, this definition is not whimsical, there is to look at the 50 d has a similar sensor, which offers an excellent image quality.
The second argument of this case is the implementation of Full HD video. Yes, you read that right, no 720 of cameraman Sunday, but good 1080 p as his great big brother, the ‘monster’ EOS 5 d Mark II. According to a2zcamerablog, there are three reasons to think that this isn’t a gadget: primo, Canon introduced a video directed by a professional photographer mounted from videos captured since a 500 d. It’s clean, it is clear, even on the big picture of the projector. Second, the sensors of digital cameras are much larger than those of camcorders, so there is no problem in low light on the contrary. And thirdly, the freedom offered by the interchangeable optics in the way of filming could transform this SLR camera semi-pro for young filmmakers. The downside is the same as on the other DSLR, GH1 of Panasonic except: the update is done by hand. To remedy this defect, the 500 d offers the follow-up of topics on display.
For those who like numbers, this new device represents 15.1 million photosites, goes from 100 to 3200 ISO or even 12800 in extended mode, its screen consists of 920000 pixels for 7.6 cm diagonal and shoots Jpeg at 3.4 frames per second. For those who mock numbers and those who want photographic arguments, we hold that the sensor allows for large prints and substantial cropping, that the processor (Digic IV) imaging allows shooting in very low light, the screen is super fine and we can widely started making images of sport hope we have a proper perspective.
Having in hand a pre-release version of the device, the first sensations are good: the case is not cheap even if it isn’t at the level of Nikon (King of the robust housings) and is well in hand. The screen is simply superb, largely at the level of more expensive devices (we think the 50 d and 5 d Mark II) and the tracking of faces in video mode works very well. Canon keeps well of course the Organization of its menus, whose ergonomics is a prove.
Hidden in the maze of the announcement and press releases, we find a software provided by Canon: Dust Delete Data. Not content to deliver a software suite with all its DSLR (less powerful than of Nikon’s Capture NX2 but free), the Japanese brand here offers software that theoretically removes the dust cleaning built into the case (by vibration of the sensor) system is not able to remove. A very good initiative and we won’t miss, during the test, to see what gives this software on our 350 d to the tired sensor files.
In addition to this launch, Canon also announced the Speelite EX-270, a little flash to accompany its compact PowerShot G9 and G10 also his SLR experts. A very small frame and has a swivel head to make the ceiling flashes, the animal only works with two batteries and is very light. However, its price is a little high: 179 euros. Long live the margins on accessories.
The test will, of course, the opportunity to see if this 500 d will keep its promises and if the fate of best-selling him drew Cannon will come true. After a quick passage in our hands, the first contact was good and look forward us mid-April to be able to tell you more. On the other hand, we can say is that the implementation of all these novelties has a high cost: 900 body only euros and 1000 euros with II EF-S 17-55 f/3, 5-5, 6. A salt addition that could amply justify the impressive data sheet if its realization is the height.
