The 500D has that typical look-and-feel that is characteristic of all the Canon consumer dSLRs _ there’s the black plastic casing, along with smooth black buttons and a new 3-inch LCD screen. Normally we’d wax lyrical about the screen under the features section, but it really needs to be said here. Filled with 920,000 dots, the screen’s brightness and resolution is just great for a camera of its class. It is a joy to use, and ideal for partnering with the movie mode and Live View.
