On the 28th of October, I was able to upgrade my Canon 30D DSLR (which was sadly damaged in New Zealand) with the new Canon 50D.
After checking out the features of the new body I am incredibly happy. However I found out that the old battery grip was also damaged a bit. The vertical shutter button had a noticeable lag. Sometimes it would not even activate at all. As a work-around I could just use the main shutter button but it would be awkward for portrait shots.
So thanks to an early Christmas present, today I got the BG-E2N battery grip!
- New menu system
- Massive high resolution screen
- Lens illumination correction
- Better weather sealing
- Higher mega pixel rating. (gone from 8.2 to 15)
- Takes great shots from what I have seen so far
So all European blog posts will be with my new camera! Can’t wait!
