550D or the 50D

Recommended Posts

Billthy    3

Looking to get a new SLR, i currently have a D50 and i'm looking to upgrade. I was looking at the Rebel 550D or the 50D. I was leaning towards the 550D because it would be nice to have video and it is something i might explore more (if i have it). I would consider myself high amateur - mid advanced knowledge with SLR's. I only bought 1 lens for my D50 (12-24mm Tokina for my Hawaii trips) so i haven't invested a lot of money into the Nikon so i was thinking about going with Canon.

I think going for the D90 would be much more natural, why do you want to switch to Canon specifically? If you consider yourself an advanced amateur and want Canon I think you'll appreciate the 50D's twin dials.

Well a lot of my friends have Canons and so does my sister. She has a bunch of lenses that i could borrow while i build up my collection since she lives close to me.

If you're going to make the jump over to Canon, I'd suggest the 50D.

50D has better low light, faster continuous shot, uses CF Memory, and faster shutter speed (better for sports)

550D HD video, higher MP count, uses SDXC memory

Personally I would get the 550D but that is because I am more interested in the versatility.
