Advantages: Easy to use
Bought this camera when daughter was born and taken some great shots.
Really easy to use and would happily recommend people buy this.
Good feature is that it also has a video camera feature, so if its just a short video, you don't have to carry a video camera around with you as well. That was one of the reasons for choosing this particular model. The next model up had a higher number of pixels for the camera, but without a video option so certainly helped my decision in the first place.
Controls are easy to navigate and battery life is good too. I had another make of camera before with poor battery life, which often meant that we could only take photos some of the time! Never been a problem with the EOS500D so far.
Pictures are really sharp especially when you look at the photos on-screen or occasionally in print!
If you want a Digital SLR (and this was my 1st Digital SLR after using an old Minolta SLR some 20 or so years ago) this is a great one to buy.
I'd happily recommend Canon and this model in particular.
Summary: Good Battery life, easy to use and great photos. What more can you ask for?
