Please help me enjoy my 50D more!
Aug 14, 2009

I bought a 50D several months back and let me be the first to admit that I haven't used it as much as I should. I sold a Pentax K10D to purchase the Cannon 50D and I have been rather discouraged so far. Clearly this camera has potential, but I do not seem to get as good of pictures as I did with my Pentax. The colors from the Pentax seemed more rich to me.

My kids run Cross Country every fall, so I wanted the speed of the Cannon, which is great. I just need to learn to take better pictures with this camera. Are there any basic adjustments you would recommend? I remember reading some posts about adjustments people were making to the factory settings to enhance their pics. Are there any good references out there that explain the basic use of the camera?

Any help would be appreciated.

Dan
