Canon EOS 50D

15 Reasons why Canon EOS 50D is better

than the average

1.Appreciably larger sensor
22.3 x 14.9mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.Considerably longer battery life
640shotsvs 516shots (the average)
vs 4400shots (best: Nikon D3x)
CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
3.Way higher pixel density
471ppivs 360ppi (the average)
vs 544ppi (best: Sony A7)
4.More battery power
1390mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
5.Is dustproof and water resistant
Yesvs No (91% don't have it)
Dustproof / water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1m.
6.Significantly higher resolution
783x1,175pxvs 875x609px (the average)
vs 1,517x1,011px (best: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2K + Lumix G Vario 14-42mm/ F3.5-5.6 ASPH./ MEGA O.I.S)
7.Somewhat bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))

9.Weather sealed
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
10.Is a system camera
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)

0.131svs 16.330s (the average)
vs 0.00025s (best: Leica M Typ 240)

12.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
13.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
