SECTION 1: WHO IS THIS REVIEW FOR This review is close to 10 pages long because it was written for people who are not proficient with the terms and concepts used in the DSLR world.

My friend and I took shot after shot using identical settings and identical lenses under a variety of situations, (low light, high speed, high light, inside, outside, dull colors and vibrant colors). We then took the pictures, compiled them on a single memory card and displayed them on my 46" 1080P HDTV. Results were very much in favor of the 50D. Shot for shot the 50D either matched or exceeded the picture quality of the 40D in all but one situation: indoors with low light and dull colors. Under that situation the 50D...

The pros and cons of this camera have already been reported on very nicely by other reviewers - this short video tutorial is going to outline the process of installing Magic Lantern on your 50D, as well as show off the added video capabilities! Sorry for the lackluster video footage - as soon as I went outside it started to rain so I couldn't get anything very interesting!
