A video review of the Canon 50D, covering build quality, functionality and the various capabilities of the camera.

The Canon 40D is a 10 megapixel camera which is 2 megapixels more than its predecessor, the Canon 30D. Weighing 740 grams and with a magnesium alloy body construction, it certainly feels like a tough camera, although as with any expensive digital equipment, it’s not something advisable to drop, at any distance.

Not quite classed as a telephoto lens, but with a greater focal range than most standard lenses, the Tamron 55-200mm is a good all purpose addition to your kit bag. Tamron produce lenses for a number of camera manufacturers, and this lens is available with either a Canon, Nikon or Sony fitting.
In June 2008, Canon launched a new breed of digital SLR camera to the market. Aimed at those new to SLR photography, the Canon 1000D was an entry level camera that came with an attractive price tag. In America, the Canon 1000D is called the Digital Rebel XS. A step up from the hybrid cameras such as the Canon Powershot, the Canon 1000D offers the ability to use Canon’s range of lenses (EF and EF-S mount) but doesn’t have some of the higher level functions that the mid-range to professional cameras possess.
The Canon 15mm Fisheye lens is compact, well built and offers the opportunity to take some pretty stunning yet unconventional images.
Weighing 330 grams it’s light and very portable making it easy to carry around in your kit bag. A slight drawback however being that the accompanying lens cap does not fit all that tightly around the lens resulting in it easily falling off.
The Canon 20D is not the newest digital camera around these days. Launched in 2004, it has been around for a number of years, so today, it’s pretty cheap to pick up and can be potentially an economical way to get into SLR photography without spending a lot more money for the latest equipment currently available.
