Competition in the DSLR class middle class more lively with the presence of two brand-new product from the big two: Canon and Nikon. Continuing the successful EOS 40D, Canon now makes his successor is named after the EOS 50D. Just like Canon, Nikon also makes the successor of the D80 which is now named D90. Both the Canon EOS 50D and Nikon D90 are both released at roughly the same, namely 26 to 27 August 2008 so that it looked very much a very fierce competition between the two camps.
First, the Canon EOS 50D as Canon’s flagship to fill the middle class, intended for those who want the best camera in Canon DSLR class APS-C sized sensor. Besides taking 15 MP CMOS sensor, the 50D is hardly too much memyempurnakan specifications of its predecessor which is already very good. The most fundamental changes (in addition to 15 MP resolution) is the use of engine DIGIC 4, ISO 3200 (formerly 1600), 3-inch LCD screen high resolution, contrast detect live-view (previously there was only phase detect), and slightly slower in continuous shooting (6.3 fps compared to 6.5 fps). Even in terms of body design is also the 50D is nearly identical to the 40D, both front and rear look. As kit lens, Canon introduced a new lens EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS.
Furthermore, the target is the Nikon D90 as a fusion between the D60 and D300, where everything related to the ease of use (user friendly) than the D60 can be found on the D90. Similarly, the ability of the D300 (as a DX DSLR best in class) is inherited in the D90 is like the 3D tracking AF capabilities and high-resolution LCD screen. Just do not expect excellence D300 51 AF points will be inherited in D90, instead D90 has 11 AF points only. Some of the things that distinguishes D90 is compared to its predecessors is the use of CMOS sensors (formerly CCD) 12 MP resolution, EXPEED engine, ISO 3200 (formerly 1600), a live-view with the ability to record HD video (the first in history), 3-inch LCD screen (previous 2.5 inches), anti-dust and Geotagging capability with an additional GPS module. As kitnya lens, Nikon introduced the lens 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G DX ED VR AF-S.
So, how do these two middle-class DSLR to compete head to head? They share the same class, with a prism viewfinder and 3-inch LCD screens that are equally high-resolution, with both having berukruan CMOS sensor APS-C, had the same live-view feature, and are equally available wireless flash facility commander. Still, both have their respective advantages:
* Resolution: Do you think is better than the 15 MP 12 MP? If yes, then the EOS 50D so-so is considered more superior than the D90. I would beg to 15 MP is not better than 12 MP, so I personally consider them a draw.
* Auto focus: Apparently, the superiority of the D90 not only in the amount of the focal point which has 11 points (compared to 9 points on the 50D). The main advantage is the existence of legacy D90 D300 features 3D tracking AF that is capable of following fast moving objects.
* Performance: Continuous shooting at 6.3 fps capable 50D, while D90 ‘only’ capable of up to 4.5 fps. Meanwhile, the fastest shutter 50D can also be up to 1 / 8000 sec and the D90 was again defeated by ‘only’ 1 / 4000 sec. However, both the same age shutter is tested up to 100 thousand snap. 50D high ISO capabilities of up to ISO 3200 but could be raised to level 1 (ISO 6400) and level 2 (12 800), while D90 is also capable of up to ISO 3200 and can be lifted one level to ISO 6400.
* Modern Features: Although both are equipped with complete modern features, such as anti-dust on the sensor system, and live view, but the D90 is superior in terms of a resolution of 720p HD movie mode and geotagging via a separate GPS receiver.
For whom these cameras?
EOS 50D is intended for those looking for Canon DSLR cameras best in class APS-C sized sensor. Yes, the crop factor 1.6 x 50D remains as in the 40D or the caste below 450D/1000D. For those who want to enjoy the new Full Frame sensor from Canon, Canon EOS 5D wait attendance mark II, soon to be out soon.
Nikon D90 is intended for those who do not need the extra features of the Nikon DSLR cameras best in class APS-C sized sensor that Nikon D300, but also do not want to be limited by the lack of features on the Nikon D60. Moreover, the Nikon D80 had quite ‘old’ so many features that feel left behind, so the presence of perceived D90 DSLR Nikon can supplement its main line in the middle class. D90 suppose this is a minimalist version of the D300, although both were middle-class digital SLR camera that has a DX-format crop factor 1.5 x. For those who want to enjoy the Full Frame sensor from Nikon, Nikon D700 can consider that at first glance looks very much like the Nikon D300.
And who’s the winner?
But at first glance seem a bit superior to the Nikon D90 compared to the EOS 50D with a superior ability to auto focus, features movie mode via GPS and Geotagging. In your opinion, who is more worthy crowned as the winner?
