  3. Faster AF system for tracking moving subjects.
Then there's that whole 'Video' thing.

It has high iso capability, as the 450 and 1000 limit you to 1600iso, the 450 shoot well at 1600iso, But if the light drop, you may need 3200iso to keep your shutter speed up to avoid motion blurr.

Also the 500D as a bit more update AF algorithm making it a bit better to track action then the 450D and 1000D.
