The Canon EOS 40D is a semi professional 10.1 megapixel digital single lens reflex camera that was released late august of 2007.

Review Summary

The new Canon EOS40D redefines photography as real art. Also known as the next generation of digital SLR photography, this highly-anticipated Canon EOS40D features proofs of advance technology in the form of its new features like Live View shooting, advanced DIGIC III image processor, an advance autofocus sensor, a 3“ LCD and a 6.5 fps continuous shooting capability. According to the CNET review, Canon added dust- and weatherproofing on the CF slot, the buttons, and all connection points, and it implemented the same integrated sensor-cleaning system that's in the Mark III series. The latter vibrates the sensor to dislodge dust during start-up and shut-down (pressing the shutter cancels cleaning during start-up), and if that doesn't work, a Dust Delete Data option enables the camera to analyze and remember where it senses dust and algorithmically remove it from photos. There are different modes available which makes it more like a camera for pros. The Canon EOS40D is easy to learn how it functions and its modes are both automatic and manual. And also with that feature, it allows to the photographers an amazing capability to capture photographs in various conditions. It’s not considered a boring camera but a challenging one. The Canon EOS40D would come of use to people who love to be involved in digital photography. It’s also great in providing a wide range of control. With its advanced auto-focus system makes it easier in capturing moving objects a lot easier. It also features a full-time ISO in the viewfinder. Apart from its special features, it’s also known to be much more weather durable than its previous version. While some might find there’s nothing new in this camera, others seem to just ‘click’ with it. The devoted Canon fans will love this camera while others risk nothing in trying.
