The EOS 500D, designed as the next model up from the 450D – reviewed here - has top still-image continuous burst rate of 3.4f/s and a basic ISO sensitivity of between 100 and 3200, extensible up to 12,800 in certain shooting modes with reduced resolution.

Full 1080p HD video can be shot at up to 20f/s, but 30f/s movies can also be shot if you downgrade the resolution to 720p.

Also known as the Rebel T1i in North America, the 500D incorporates a 3in LCD and is set up for Live View. Auto Focus works across nine sensor points and features a face-detection setting.

To help keep dust particles at bay, the camera features the integrated cleaning sSystem already seen on several other Canon DSLRs.
