Read the manual thoroughly and take many pictures. Only way to really test cameras..
Unless you suspect something's wrong with it, you don't need to do any tests..
Take plenty of photos in the early weeks to make sure it's working as you expect... get some experience with it. Many people get disappointing results in their first week with a camera (because they're not used to it) so don't judge too early..
Thank you for your advise and time. I have taken a lot of phtos with my new 450d actually I am quite happy with the camera except the white balance when I am taking photos in a tugsent light siutation. Photos taken were tend to look yellowish..
The reason I asked for advise for testing the camera because the return policy in my country is only 10 days, after that I need to visit Canon to fix the problem(s) if there were any..
I have taken some photos with my new Camera. If you have time please give me some comments on the composition, color etc. etc..
I only have two comments..
Firstly some of your dog shots show motion blur because you have shot them at 1/30 when the dog is moving. Increase the ISO to 800..
Secondly, the ISO 800 shot of the DVD (?) player controls is surprisingly noisy and the one of the keyboard also has some noise. On the other hand one of your dog shots at ISO 800 has no visible noise at all. Have you increased the brightness in post processing of the DVD player shot?Chris R..

Nearly all camera do this, even much more expensive ones. They can't handle artificial light automatically, so you have to set the white balance manually, or at least choose a preset. If you shoot in raw mode, you can set white balance on your computer afterwards..

Thank you for your comments..
1. Motion blur for my dog - just got my camera at that day those are my first shots..
2. DVD player's photos were done in a low light siutation (kind of) but the photos of my dog with ISO 800 were better lite. All photos are without editing, I have downloaded right from the camera..
I will bring my camera out and take some landscape today....bubble..
May be you would like to give me some comments on my photos..
