Canon EOS 500D Digital SLR Camera Review

Posted on Jul 8 2010 - 8:44am by Richard Sharp

There are so many good quality digital cameras on the market just now that it can be a little bewildering if you go into an online shop and try and find one which is right for you. The Canon EOS 500D Digital SLR camera is basically the rival to the Nikon D5000. The Canon model offers several very attractive features which make it a useful addition to the company’s extensive range of machines while being a machine which is pretty simple to use straight from the box.


We are talking about a camera which is nice and sturdy and which has a clear, easy to use display screen.

Notable Specifications

The two most important details to take note of are the 15.1 megapixels and the full HD 1080p video capability, which place this model above the similarly priced options in Canon’s own range.  The quality of the video shooting option, in particular, sets it apart from many of its rivals.

Apart from those details it contains a wide number of features which you can explore as you get used to it and want to experiment with different types of photos.


A brief spell of internet browsing should lead you to the conclusion that £600 will get you the Canon EOS 500D Digital SLR camera. This is not at all a bad price for a camera which outpunches the majority of cameras in this price range.


It has been suggested that is a great choice for someone taking their first steps towards becoming a more serious photographer. It is easy to use on the factory settings, despite being feature packed, and most people should find that they are able to start shooting great pictures straight away, while knowing that they can gradually learn more tricks and techniques to improve through time. It is also a camera which you should not have to think about upgrading for a long time.
