  • Summary: Canon’s EOS 40D is a camera that boasts some neat technology, so much there’s not room to do it all justice here, suffice to say, barring the metering anomaly (which a firmware upgrade is likely to sort easily), this is a great camera with a massive potential and worth a closer look.
  • Pros: Handling, image quality, ease of use, good dust removal system and prevention, AF, great colour and white balance, low noise, Good software.
  • Cons: Over crowded buttons, fussy button/dial combinations, metering foibles.

Pop Photo
13 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Canon's EOS 30D was the DSLR middleweight contender to beat for most of 2007, thanks to its tough body, great image quality, fast autofocus, and semi-pro controls. So it's no surprise that the new 10.1MP EOS 40D ($1,300, street, body only; $1,500, street, with EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens)...

Hands On: Canon EOS 40D

13 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Don't think for a minute that the new Canon EOS 40D is simply an incremental upgrade to the 30D. Although the 10.1-megapixel EOS 40D has a virtually identical hand-feel to the 8.2 megapixel EOS 30D it replaces, it shows improvements over its predecessor in several ways.

Live View Photography with the Canon EOS 40D

Pop Photo
13 July 2008
  • Excerpt: We'll admit it. It took us some time to warm up to the idea of "Live View" functions on DSLRs. No more! Now that we've spent some time in the studio with the Canon EOS 40D and its Live View capabilities, we're sold on its uses in the studio and other controlled situations.

  • Conclusion: Canon EOS 40D digital SLR camera The seven models, from EOS D30 to the 40D, have changed drastically. The image sensor and processor took huge steps forwards and also the DSLR camera itself improved a lot. Can you still imagine how happy a 1.8-inch monitor on the back of a camera made you?
