The Canon 40D is a perfect camera for pre-professionals

  • Excerpt: When I bought this camera two years ago, I considered myself to be an Amateur photographer.  I mainly take pictures of families and children.  This was my second Canon.  My first was the Canon Rebel XTI.  I taught myself how to shoot strictly in manual on that camera so when I purchased the 40D, I already had the knowledge of shutter speed, aperture, ISO, etc.  This camera was a huge step above the Rebel.

  • Excerpt: This camera is in line with the other Canon products. I like the way you can control your shot (not just a point and shoot) I have had some problems with the Auto Focus.

Awesome DSLR camera!

  • Excerpt: The 40D is my first  DSLR camera on the Canon line!  I would say it's a really great camera! The photos are awesome, the noise is minimal and the quality is great! The only downfall I would say would be the weight, It does get very heavy eps if you are hiking etc. If I was just beginner photographer I would prolly choose a little something lighter like a xsi or a Canon Rebel XTI...Although the 40D is a step up from the Rebel line.

  • Excerpt: This camera has been such a good friend of mine for the last year. I have taken it everywhere! I love how easy it is to use. There are many new-user friendly settings that give anyone great quality pictures with a simple twist and click. I love the large lcd screen to view all the images on. The camera is easy to operate and it is easy to view and delete images on the spot. The 40D is also a great learning tool to shoot manually.

  • Excerpt: i bought this camera as an upgrade to my Canon Rebel. I initially chose it because of the base price, which is quite reasonable for a professional camera. The kit lens isnt bad, but I upgraded my lenses after having the camera for about a year.

Definitely an Upgrade from the Rebel series

  • Excerpt: I've used numerous DSLR's before I got the Canon 40d (Canon xTi, Canon XS, Canon XSi, Nikon d40). You might consider a change from xsi to 40d not as an upgrade, but when considering all the technical specs on both cameras, it is definitely a huge upgrade. First of all, build quality of the camera is non-comparable to the rebels. It has the strong build and heavy weight, making it fit perfectly to many professional photographers.

I first felt like a pro with my 40d

  • Excerpt: I started my photo journey 4 years ago and started with a Canon Rebel XT. I loved that camera and it was the vehicle for me to learn everything technical-iso, shutter speed, aperature. I invested in a decent lens that would open to 2.8. I loved the camera and used it for almost 3 years and then just got to the point where I knew I had outgrown it. So I invested my money into a 40d.

awesome prosumer camera for the price

  • Excerpt: This camera takes great pictures. Don't be fooled by the marketing hype and think 10MP is not enough. Honestly, most people will not need anything more than 7MPs. Don't look at the Mega Pixels, the quality of the picture is more dependent on the sensor size than it does on MPs. Sometimes it is worst because manufacturers will try to cram more MPs into the same sensor size. The specs on this camera is more than enough for the customers this camera is being marketed to.

semi professional camera

  • Excerpt: The Canon 40D is a great step up from a entry level DSLR such as the Rebel series. The Canon 40D has more options and a wonderful top LCD screen which makes viewing your settings very convenient. The 40D still has the auto setting for those who don't use manual mode, but in addition it has semi-manual modes. The Canon 40D is a great fit for average hands.
