Shooting modes can be easily selected via the rotary knob that's conveniently located on top of the camera. If you want to regularly capture successful home movies, you'd be better off with a dedicated video camera instead. This feature really does seem to make a difference and could mean capturing a successful, sharp shot or missing the opportunity altogether.

Picture Style Editor allows users to create individual Picture Styles that fit with their personal requirements. On top of this the camera models are constantly updated by manufacturers meaning new and improved models every 6 months. Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit - A key element of minimising dust is preventing it from clinging to the front surface of the imaging sensor.Processing with Digital Photo Professional allows real-time display and immediate application of image adjustments, giving control over RAW image variables such as white balance, dynamic range, exposure compensation, noise reduction and colour tone – plus the ability to view Auto Focus points on an image.

DIGIC chips work with a high speed image buffer – reading, processing, compressing and writing image data fast enough to keep the buffer clear during long continuous shooting bursts. This is a selection of sample images from the Canon EOS 500D camera, which were all taken using the 15 megapixel Fine JPEG setting setting. The software suite is included with EOS Utility and Picture Style editor for unrivalled versatility. The advantage of the Raw file really comes through for processing, as you can fine-tune your sharpening and other adjustments at full 12-bit resolution before converting. Beyond this, levels increase more rapidly and at the highest 12800 ISO setting the image shows some serious signs of break up.You can also take either single or continuous stills during recording, with video capture continuing after the final still frame has been taken.

A wide-area Auto Focus (AF) system uses nine separate focusing points to lock onto subjects fast and makes it so easy to get the shot you want. On close inspection the images have exceptional levels of detail, and holding up to scrutiny even at 200%. Casual users hoping to grab some quality footage of the kids may be put off by the inherent difficulties of shooting video using the relatively alien SLR format. The Canon EOS 500D is the company’s latest addition to the DSLR lineup and has positioned the three-digit EOS range – originally introduced as a budget, entry-level option – as an advanced series, bringing some seriously impressive features with it.

The EOS 500D also features the internal Dust Delete Data system which can map the position of visible dust on the sensor. Then add a larger LCD and HD video capture (if you go in for that), and the camera becomes even more appealing. The only key tripping point with this camera (and I assume this is the same for most other dSLR's) is that you really need to keep the ISO at 100 or 200. This could delay the need for manual sensor cleaning, perhaps indefinitely, but it won't be able to remove ‘sticky' deposits like salt spray, pollen or the smears left behind by careless sensor cleaning or the wrong kind of solvent.
