Canon EOS 450D digital SLR

 

Is Canon's consumer DSLR too little, too late?

If the Canon EOS 450D is intended to be an entry-level camera then it is going to have some problems. It is too expensive, and requires too much user input to get the best from its outstanding image quality. Where it may win however is for the...

Canon EOS 450D review

 

Live View, fast continuous shooting and a huge LCD make the 450D an exciting proposition. Can it live up to the hype?

Almost nonchalantly efficient in every way, the 450D is an understated slice of photographic genius

Canon EOS 450D DSLR camera

 

Canon's new entry-level flagship model has become so advanced that it is starting to encroach on the company's more professionally targeted 40D camera. So should those looking to upgrade give this one a miss? We went out and about with both cameras to...

3-inch screen, 12 megapixels, SD card, 9-point AF system, Live View

No CompactFlash, still on the large side compared to Olympus E-Series, images appeared flat and under exposed

If you've yet to enter the digital SLR market and fancy going Canon, there are a number of features here on the Canon 450D that will appeal, not only that, it's actually a very good camera that performs well if not a little flat for our liking,...

First Look: Canon EOS 450D

 

Canon has updated its entry-level digital camera for the first time in over 15 months, but has the wait been worth it? We had a chance to get an early hands-on with the new 450D (or the Digital Rebel XSi for our American readers) at the company's...

Canon EOS 450D review

 

The 450D is the latest model to enter the insanely competitive budget SLR market

Quality image-stabilising lens included ; Low-noise images below ISO 1,000 ; New Live View mode to aid composition ; Dedicated ISO button

JPEGs need sharpening ; Still pricey compared to rivals

The 450D has lots of useful extras but isn't a clear market leader. If this is your first SLR, check out the equally good (and cheaper) Nikon D80 before deciding

Canon EOS 450D + 18-55mm IS lens review

 

Canon's EOS 450D is the fourth generation of the camera that kick-started the affordable DSLR market.

Canon EOS 450D review

 

It's easy to look at the Canon DSLR product line and slot the cameras into ‘beginner', ‘intermediate', and ‘advanced' categories. But to call the Canon EOS 450D (also known as the EOS 450D) a beginner or starter DSLR is a misnomer. The Canon EOS 450D...

The XSi delivers image quality that’s identical to Canon’s EOS 40D, but for a lot less. What are you giving up if you go for the XSi? The EOS 40D has a faster burst rate (five frames per second versus the Canon Rebel XSi’s three), more customization,...

Canon EOS 450D with 18-55mm IS lens review

 

The 450D is the successor to our previous favourite digital SLR, the 400D, and offers some significant upgrades.

Canon EOS-450D digital SLR camera review

 

Canon's latest digital SLR – the EOS-450D – will be of interest to creatives who aren't professional photographers. Over the entry-level EOS-400D, the new model adds 14bit capture, Live View with both phase- (viewfinder AF) and contrast-detection AF,...

Be that as it may, the Canon EOS-450D is a fine performer. The only real problem is price. The 450D sits uncomfortably close to the 10Mp EOS 40D. With the maker’s current cashback offer, the better-quipped semi-pro model can be had for roughly the same...

Canon EOS Rebel XSi review

 

After last year's disappointing Rebel XTi --a solid camera--but one that didn't improve significantly over its predecessor, the Canon EOS Rebel XSi comes as a welcome change, and a model worthy of upgrading from your old Rebel XT . It may have a...

Excellent photo quality for its class; better-than-average speed.

Maximum ISO 1600; huge spot-for-spot metering.

It doesn't stand out for its feature set or design, but the Canon EOS Rebel XSi delivers on performance and photo quality.
