Canon EOS 500D unboxing video

I have to admit to being a fan of Canon DSLR cameras. I’ve owned a large number of them over the years and was pleased to get my hands on Canon’s latest EOS release, the 500D.


The Canon EOS 500D


While I have the slightly better EOS 50D at the moment the one thing that the 500D offers that the 50D does not is the ability to record HD Video. It was for this reason that I really wanted to try out the 500D as I’m sure you’ll realise by now, I do record a lot of video!

So over the next week or so I’ll be using the 500D to take photos of the products that we are reviewing at the moment and also will try using it to capture some HD video.

Have a look at the unboxing video below to see what you get with the 500D and also have a quick look around the camera body.
