How many shots can one get on the 450d battery?

Depends from so many factors:

  • if u use Live View
  • if u are using flash
  • if u are using autofocus a lot
  • if u shoot REALLY long exposure times
  • if u check the pictures long on LCD after the shoot

and finally we are talking about an old camera with probably old batteries..
without abusing flash/liveview, after around 200 shots i got still enough battery.

I will be chimping when taking test shots, and reviewing pictures, but using liveview to take pictures and the pop up flash really isn't an option i plan on using. Im hoping for a 1000 shots.

cheap but sharp lens!

The 55-250mm lens is cheap for sure,, it most certainly is not sharp until f/8,, and even then,, meh.

I have had my XSI for several years & have not used it to its full potential. I am not a professional photographer by any stretch of the imagination. Since I bought it, I have not been happy with how my photos would come out too soft, couldn't figure out what the problem was, but lived with it in pp. Just yesterday, I re-read my book & went into Picture Styles, then Sharpness, bumped that up 2 notches & now have photos that I am so happy with!

Pays to read the manual. Plus, I saved my dh $1500 NOT buying the 70D with 17-135mm lens!

its a great camera! The 18-55mm IS is also decent but a better lens will give sharper images. Enjoy yuor new found sharpness ;)

Thanks! I do love it even more now.

Besides the kit lens, I do have the 55-250 & a prime lens, the 50mm 1.8 which gives excellent sharpness. I have had fun this weekend taking lots of photos.

Zeus age 4.5 or so... (age 9.5 in Aug 2014)
you see... I was seeing a woman in 2008 and she wanted a dog (her most recent passed away weeks before we met) so she met Zeus here in a shelter and the rest is history. She and I separated but I have been fortunate beyond measure to be able to look after Zeus whenever schedules permitted.

So here we have one of my fave pics of Zeus back in Nov. 2009... funny 18mm wide perspective distortion but sort of makes him look like a pup
He might be the closest thing I have to a son in this life and he enriches it so!

Did you change the sharpness in-camera or in DPP?
(I have the same camera and always find the photos too soft, sharpening in DPP doesn't always help)

I don't know why not...it's a nice size...not too small in my hands and nice and compact on my back while biking...
The vf is larger than most rebels and bright, virtually the size of 30D...it's 12mp is plenty...the rear screen is nice and big and bright...and if you don't need video it's got all most people need...it's the pinnacle of non-video Rebels.

I shoot RAW so basic sharpening is done in DPP and then USM done in Photoshop.
