Summary: The Canon EOS 40D is another great SLR camera made by this manufacturer. The 10.1 Megapixel sensor is the hallmark of this model, therefore, allows to obtain even better than the already excellent Canon Eos 30d. For the rest, good magnesium alloy body, wide choice of goals, long-life battery. There are absolutely no downsides, if not the price which, for obvious reasons, is very high, and weight.
Excerpt: Before I start writing my review of CanonÂ’s EOS 40D camera, IÂ’d like to you ask you, the reader/consumer, a few questions. Please answer them honestly. That, and this detailed 40D digital SLR camera review, will tell you if the Canon EOS 40D is right for you.
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.
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? The difference with today's cameras is evident and the EOS 40D is a true example of where we stand now and how the technique has advanced.
Conclusion: You really can’t wrong buying the Canon EOS 40D. Photo quality is very good, there are a ton of manual adjustments, it feels right—and then there’s that startling 6.5 fps burst mode. It’s like stepping on a Porsche’s gas pedal and enjoying the ride. Although on the expensive side, if you’re serious about photography, give it a long look.
Pros: Good 10MP images; amazing 6.5 fps burst mode; large 3-inch LCD
Excerpt: The Canon EOS 40D is a subtle improvement over the 30D, but in many ways it’s also an understudy for the EOS 1D Mark III. The 40D is used by many professionals as well as enthusiasts, and in our tests we found the camera does have a lot to offer in terms of functionality. The 40D is a bit bulky, with dimensions of 146 x 108 x 74 mm, while the weight is about 822g. It feels quite heavy, but not without a reason.
Conclusion: Laten we een conclusie trekken; de Canon EOS 40D is een D-SLR camera die eigenlijk wel zo'n beetje af is, voor zover een product af kan zijn. Het is in ieder geval een lekkere stevige camera, met een goed werkende autofocus, een stille sluiter en spiegel, een fraaie zoeker en een prima bediening. Live View werkt uitstekend, je kunt met de camera door de regen lopen, en vooral heb je een prima stuk gereedschap in je handen dat een prima kwaliteit laat zien.
