    15.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor
    Canon’s APS-C sized CMOS sensor delivers ultra-detailed, low-noise images – ideal for large-scale reproduction and creative cropping. Redesigned pixels with gapless micro lenses extend light gathering capability for exceptional performance throughout the ISO range.

    6.3 fps continuous shooting
    Perfect for sports, wildlife and action sequences, the EOS 50D captures 6.3 frames per second for continuous bursts of up to 90 JPEGs with a Ultra-DMA card.

    DIGIC 4
    DIGIC 4 is the EOS 50D’s powerful processing engine, working with the CMOS sensor to deliver 14-bit image processing for smooth gradations and natural looking colours. Fast enough to power 6.3 fps continuous shooting, DIGIC 4 is also responsible for the EOS 50D’s near-instant startup time and quick image review following shooting.

    ISO range
    For fast shutter speed shooting in low light, the EOS 50D features base ISO speeds to 3200, expandable to an ultra-sensitive 12800.

    Clear View LCD
    The 3-inch 920,000 dot VGA LCD screen offers exceptional clarity, perfect for checking the focus and composition of your images. The large viewing angle coupled with Live View mode makes photography at awkward angles a breeze.

    Live View mode
    Live View mode allows users to accurately frame images when using the viewfinder is impractical. The dedicated Live View button displays real-time images on the LCD, offering three types of auto focus: Quick AF, Live AF, and new Face Detection Live AF, which focuses based on faces detected in the frame.

    Wide-area AF with 9 cross type points
    The high-precision AF system employs 9 cross type points for precise focusing on both horizontal and vertical planes. The central AF point offers sensitivity up to f/2.8. Points are spread out across the AF frame to better accommodate off-centre subjects.

    Magnesium alloy body
    Built for demanding daily use, the EOS 50D’s lightweight, durable magnesium alloy body incorporates environmental protection for performance you can rely on.

    EOS Integrated Cleaning System
    Canon’s EICS combines special component materials to reduce dust generation, a fluorine coating on the low-pass filter to repel dust, and a Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit to shake dust free at power up/power down.
