    The end of the 50 D

    I have just bought a new 50d as Canon has stopped production & a new model is around the corner. I did't want a camera with video in it & as the 550d has video ,I'm sure the replacement will have video as well.
    Regards Canonboy

    I am receiving the 50D tomorrow for my birthday and like you I didn't want the video feature either. How are you finding your new camera?

    They have been saying for a few weeks Canon Aust was out of stock of the 50D and not getting anymore in. A lot of shops are selling off their remaining stock. I decided to grab one before they went and am extremely happy with it.

    I was checking out prices on the net for a couple of weeks & last week I looked at DCW site & the 50d was gone ! I rang them & was told the they had sold out for good ,also JB hi fi ,Spectrum Camera House & a few others told me the same thing.
    I got the 50d from Camera House in Parramatta,[ $999] they had bought 60 of them a few months ago & I think they had 2 left after I bought mine.
    Bearteggie the 50 d is greeaaat ,I had a 400d b4 & it is heaps better .
    Happy shooting .

    The 60D is coming. Photokina (the world's largest photographic expo) starts in less than a month. Canon usually like to use it to announce something...

    The guy @ DCW told me they were going to a Canon night at the end of August & he was guessing they would make an anouncement about the 60 d then .

    Funnily enough thats where I purchased my 50D the other week too, a few HN shops around here had the odd 1 or 2 but the prices were a tad high. $1750 for body and a nifty fifty at one.

    .Lucky me, I bought a new 50D at Digital Photographics North Sydney on the 26 July for $950. So much easier to use than the 450D, I just hope the photographs turn out as well. At the time of my purchase they had quite a few in stock .

    Bought the 2nd last one from Teds in Brissy a couple weeks ago - moved up from a 400D. Man I love the 50D and to be honest, it is a whole new learning curve.

    I got my 50D today from Harvey Norman Newcastle for $1700 with the 18-200IS lens. I have only taken a couple of pics so far but it is a big difference to my 350D. I have a steep learning curve ahead.

    I don't see the 60D as a HUGE improvement over the 50D at all. Actually it looks like a step back.



    Makes the people that got the cheap 50D's seem like they got an AWESOME bargain IMO.

    I think I might buy a 50D this weekend. The 60D isn't inspiring me much and I want to upgrade my 40D (after selling it). I think I am addicted to something

    I think they'll be flying off the shelves Craig.

    I bought a 50D (the last non-demo boxed unit) from CameraHouse in mid-July...

    This reaffirms my original expectations of the 60D actually down-grading some aspects of the 50D...the AF is unchanged, continuous shooting is slower, the body is not as durable (plastic with aluminium frame rather than the 50D's Magnesium alloy frame) and importantly, AF Micro-adjust is missing! What the hell Canon!

    In hindsight, I am now thankful that my mum pushed me out of the 50D-60D limbo in July and encouraged me to go for the 50D and spend the $500 saved on the body on glass instead...

    And I still have the same thoughts on video...If i wanted video, I wouldn't spend upwards of $3000 on equipment meant for stills as the primary aim...there's camcorders for video...
