View Full Version : Smaller Alternative to Canon EOS 500d

02-04-13, 11:54 AM

I currently own a Canon EOS 550d, with 2 lenses- Canon 50-250mm, and the stock 18-55mm.

Recently, I have not used it as much as I would have liked, because

A)I'm lazy and can't be bothered to bring it :p
B)It's too big/bulky for me.

Hence, I would like to downsize my camera to one that is smaller, and which can preferably take the 55-250mm Lens, with reasonable FPS and video.

Do any of you steadfast folks know of any products than can do this? I have looked at the EOS M, but apparrently the Autofocus is rubbish: http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/digital-cameras/1298092/canon-eos-m, http://www.pcpro.co.uk/reviews/digital-cameras/380002/canon-eos-m/2 .

Will consider anything that isn't at a massive price, not working full time so can't afford much.

My friend have this camera, but he lost his charger. However, i find a Canon EOS 550d charger from http://www.chargers-mall.com/eos-500d-canon-camera-charger.htm, is it safe?
