Canon EOS 50D 15.1MP

The EOS 50D is a bridge camera between amateur and professional cameras. It delivers both the ease of use of a camera for novices as well as the quality of a professional camera.

The EOS 50D offers greater technical support than it's predecessor the 40D, with the help of improved features. It has a resolution of 15.1 Megapixel. A higher resolution provides you with more data to work. Simply put this means that result is a more detailed image that gives more room for editing. Another noticeable improvement to the camera is the higher resolution of the LCD screen. This is very important because it allows you have a clearer view of the photo immediately after it is taken. Allowing the photographer to correct any focus or composition relate issue immediately.

Cannon allows the use of the LCD for control settings. This means that the shooting parameters are displayed on the LCD screen. This facility has been further enhanced to increase ease of use even further. 50D improves on this by providing a quick control screen. This screen basically displays the multiple shooting parameters with a push of a single button.

Canon EOS Rebel T1i 15.1 MP

I enjoy reading photography forums and a question which is frequently asked is: "I would like to take up photography as a hobby, which camera should I get?" The camera that is best for this purpose and most frequently recommended is the EOS Rebel.

The EOS Rebel is a 15 megapixel DSLR camera. The camera is designed to make the entire photography experience more smooth and enjoyable. This intent is clear in the strong and light build of the camera. Both properties combine to provide a good grip and easy handling.

An important feature that is added to the strong DSLR functionality suite is 'Live View'. This allows the user to shoot from awkward angles. Making the composition of such shots a lot easier. It also eliminates blind shooting, which was the previous method for difficult angles.

There are lots of other enhancements that significantly improve the overall performance. Worth mentioning is the 'spot metering' function. This means that you are able to have better control on exposure which, is especially important in tricky lighting situations. Another good improvement is the expansion of the PictBridge functionality. This not only allows adding of effects before printing but also helps in correcting horizons for a better result.

Canon PowerShot SX20IS 12.1MP Digital Camera

Canon Power Shot is a great hybrid camera which, provides great features for both video and still photography. The overall look and feel of the camera is that of sophistication. This is due to the good quality hard plastic body work and the matt black finish. It is a good sized camera that needs a strap or a bag to help you carry it around.

A great design feature of Canon Power shot is the flip out LCD screen. This enables the user to shoot at awkward angles with ease. The screen can be rotated and angles can be adjusted for the best possible view.

The camera provides great quality images. The night time photography is also extremely good due to great shutter speed. The anti shake mechanism let's you take crisper, clearer pictures. The camera also provides features to improve shadow details in a photograph. The 'My Colors' functionality provides several options to change the overall look of the photograph.

For a cheap camera that can also record video you cant beat the PowerShot SX20IS.

Canon PowerShot SD1300IS 10 MP Digital Camera

This is a small and sleek camera from Canon that is available in a variety of colors. It provides the ideal balance between affordability and great features. It is very responsive and comfortable to use, which makes it an attractive choice for amateurs. However it also has enough functionality to allow a more experienced photographer to get a more precise shot.

This is a 12.1 megapixel camera that provides a zoom between 35 to 105 mm. The camera also has a 2.5 inch wide LCD screen. It comes equipped with a feature called smart AUTO. This is a great feature for amateurs as it intelligently chooses settings that are best suited for a specific shot. It also provides 18 preset shooting modes including the 'Program' or 'P' mode. This mode allows advanced photographers to manipulate settings like ISO, white balance, metering etc. The camera also has a movie mode and can record 4 GB worth of videos.

      If you can't afford the 50D the 600D is also a nice choice.
