Review Date: Aug 18, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Small and light but still comfortable to use, fantastic image quality, very good high ISO performance, nice viewfinder.
Cons:
Shutter sound a bit sharp, but nothing too bad.

This is a wonderful camera and a perfect companion to my 5D. The 5D has better image quality (of course), but with good lenses the difference isn't huge and I never hesitate to leave the 5D at home when I want to go light.

Because of its high resolution the 450D sensor is demanding and appreciates good glass if you can afford it. It actually outresolves many lenses.

Put a sharp prime on it and you get a fantastic camera for street photography.

With good lenses the 12MP are very useful. You can crop heavily and still get a sharp and detailed photo.

Autofocus on mine has been nothing less than excellent.

I love my 5D, but actually prefer the handling of the 450D. It fits my hands perfectly and all the buttons are easy to reach. The menu with its tabs and "My menu" is very practical.

Auto-ISO works very well and I actually keep it there 98% of the time.
