The main improvement of EOS 50D over 40D is the new 15.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor (APS-C size) which can shoot at ISO 100-3200 (expandable to 12800). Canon achieve this by narrowing the gap between each pixel and enlarge the effective area of a pixel. The result is a sensor with better noise control and more effective pixel.

The second important step up from 40D is the LCD monitor, the new monitor on 50D will be a 3.0 ” TFT LCD with 640 x 480 resolution (920,000 dots), compare to the one on 40D is 3.0 ” TFT LCD with only 230,000 dots. However, Nikon cameras come with a high resolution LCD monitor for almost 1 year, Canon is finally able to catch up.

Canon EOS 50D test photos

When we compare the spec of 50D and 40D, there is a long list of improvements that 50D is better than 40D. However, the bottom line is, dose EOS 50D take better pictures?

Let’s have a look at few test photos taken by EOS 50D with EFs 18-200 IS.

You may want to have a look at our last post Canon EOS 50D announcement for more EOS 50D sample photos.

Conclusion

50D discussion

We are happy to see a new EOS X0D. From the specification, EOS 50D is better than 40D on almost every area; better sensor, new processor, new LCD … etc

However, from the test photos, the photo quality from EOS 50D is not really better than EOS 40D (both cameras can take really good photos). One of the reason may be because the test photos are taken by EFs 18 – 200 IS, in order to see the real different in photo quality, we need to find some test photos of EOS 50D + EFs 18 – 55 IS.
