There’s absolutely no dearth of beautiful landscapes even within our own country, notwithstanding the obvious ills of over urbanization and commercialization. An avid traveler or travel photographer will sniff out, like a hound, a place tucked away in some corner of the country, which is untouched by the evils of urbanization. Serious shutterbugs know that landscape photography needs two very important things – a restless mind and a wide angle lens which will help capture the scenic beauty of the place adequately. Thus, the Canon EOS 50D which comes with a EF 17-85 lens, a resolution of 15.1 mp and a focal range of 27mm and 136mm.

Design and Functioning

Enclosed in a tough and rugged magnesium alloy body, the EOS 50 D from Canon is made weather proof and comes with an easy and comfortable grip. Equipped with a newly designed 15.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor, this camera delivers ultra-detailed, low-noise images – ideal for large-scale reproduction or creative cropping. Its new 3.0” Clear View VGA LCD provides extra-large and wide angle-of-view image review, with plenty of clarity for accurate focus checks in playback. The EF-S – 17-85 lens that it comes with comes with a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 27-136mm and it covers a decent wide angle to telephoto range, making it a useful ‘walkaround’ lens which will cover a wide range of photographic opportunities. Canon’s intuitive EOS menu system includes a new Quick Control screen, for instant access to the most commonly-changed settings. The Canon EOS 50D is compatible with Compact Flash card of Type I and II.
