Is the price difference worth it? 450D and 500D
« on: December 01, 2009, 10:27:51 PM »
Hello Photog Gurus,

Newbie here and i'm torn between the canon 450d and 500d.  I just wanna ask your opinion on this.  Aside from the video capability of the 500D is the price difference between the 450D and 500D of 7-9k worth it?

I've been reading and most of the comments say go for the 500d because of the video, i sure i won't be taking a lot of videos therefore if thats the only difference, might as well stick to the 450D and save the money.

Thanks in advance guys!

500d has higher/more ISO capabilities/options.

If you are anticipating a lot of lowlight shooting, might be worth the purchase.

Personally, I tried it a couple of times and I am very satisfied with the ISO.

Here is a link of the review for your reference.

the higher resolution LCD of the 500D is a pretty big deal in my opinion.

Buying a cemera is an investment. Unless you're on a strict budget then the choice is obvious-450D. But if you could stretch your saving a bit more & save a longer period, i'd agree with the other members- go for 500D.

Often times, we bought a cheaper stuff then only later realize we made a mistake & say "gosh if only I knew, I would have got the other one..." Then we try to sell the old one out at a big discount in order o get the new one...we heard many similar stories na... ;)

Check also the semi-pro units. Especially the 40D, until now they are still selling it. Cos it's a very good model. It's priced almost the same as the entry-level units now.

Iba pa rin pag semi-pro. Better performance, better body, weather sealing.

My 2 cents.

Cheers!

Thanks all.. This is the typical decision when trying to get in a hobby, and yes i regretted it before when i decided to save a few bucks..

I think the 40D body alone is still priced around 42k.  I'll look into that as well...

If you don't mind a used unit, check out the PIPHO sale section, from time to time some members are selling their 40D in good condition at a reasonable price. Recently someone sold his 40D + battery grip at 35k only!  :o

The price difference between a 450D and 500D is very much worth it. But i agree, look into 40D too. Personally, i'd choose it over a 500D at any given time.  :)

Nice shots Pj. Thanks for sharing.

I'm pretty much decided on the 500D.  i'll try to maximize the features of an entry level DSLR first before moving on to a semi pro.

Now my only problem is withdrawing the money.. Haaaay buhay kuripot!!  Hehe...

Cheers guys!

Newbie here..

After looking for a brand new 40D which I could not find anymore since its already phased out. I bought the 500D last saturday in Mayer Photo for 42k.

Go for the 500D you won´t be sorry.  Specially using the live view you can see how the picture is going to come out before you even take the shot.  My colleagues here in the office are very much happy with the 500D i bought.

Like what prisidro said it has more iso capabilities and options.

i checked out http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/eng/DxOMark-Sensor about their rankings* of the 450d and 500d and here is what i saw:

                              450D         500D
Overall ranking:           48             42
Color Depth:               46             50
Dynamic Range:          63             25
Low-Light ISO:           25             28

*the lower the number, the higher the dxomark rating

does this add to your confusion?  :)
