  • 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?

What Digital Camera
4 December 2007
  • Summary: This is a proper upgrade to the 20D, whereas the 30D felt more of a stop-gap, and as a result the camera has caught up with the times. It’s very well made, has some interesting and useful new features and should be popular with previous Canon owners and those wishing to upgrade from either the 400D...
  • Pros: Build quality, 6.5fps, 3in LCD screen, image detail.
  • Cons: Some handling issues, low resolution LCD screen.

  • Summary: Canon’s EOS 40D arrived almost like clockwork, 18 months after its predecessor. This came as no surprise since Canon’s updated this particular product line at predictable intervals, but the burning question was how much of an upgrade it would be.
  • Pros: Superb handling and 6.5fps shooting., Great build & improved weatherproofing., Live View and PC remote control., Effective anti-dust during our test period.
  • Cons: Resolution not a big step-up., Default settings benefit from sharpening., Screen doesn’t have VGA resolution., No HDMI port and tough rivals.

  • Summary: Canon’s taken a long time to bring the resolution of its semi-pro model into line with the cheaper entry-level 400D. If you shoot RAW, if you need that sensational 6.5fps shooting, and if you want a tough, long-lasting camera, the 40D is exceptional value for money.
