August 20, Full Review: The Canon 40D has arrived.


Some updates that appear on the 40D are a little late, others are a sign of the times. With the same rugged, conservative shape, the Canon EOS 40D will be mostly familiar, save for a few moved controls, an extra Canon EOS 40D or two, and a Canon EOS 40D large 3. At first blush, the Canon 40D consists mostly of incremental improvements, once again.

The EOS 40D is not as groundbreaking as some would like, but it's arguable that serious photographers don't want to have to learn whole new ways using their main tools. It's also Canon EOS 40D to note that Canon's semi-pro SLRs, both the 20D and 30D, are much loved by their owners, producing excellent image quality despite the "mere" 8-megapixel sensor. The line in general has never been about sex-appeal, but about solid, reliable performance. Canon's EOS SLR system is the oldest and still the largest lens line where the focus motor is built into the lens itself, with no mechanical coupling between the lens and camera body. Dating back tothe EOS Electro-Optical System line has a huge and growing selection of lenses, some of which Canon has recently updated to meet the greater demands of digital imaging technology. Canon was also the first to deliver a digital SLR with a full-frame sensor, and they delivered it years before anyone else in the form of the That revolutionary SLR was also introduced on August 20, back in Its price and improved functionality allow it to compete more favorably against both the more expensive Nikon D and less expensive Nikon D80, both of which had the 30D surrounded with a long list of impressive features, if not necessarily superior image quality though both certainly have higher resolution than the 30D.

Canon made important additions, some to keep up with the market, and others to meet needs expressed by users. The final product is a mostly improved high-end digital SLR camera that, while not a compelling upgrade for most 20D and 30D owners, is a great digital SLR camera. From the back, however, there is one very large difference: Its influence on the back control layout is so great that they had to move four of the buttons that are usually arrayed to the left of the screen to the bottom, under the LCD.

Canon EOS 40D : Tests and Reviews

When it comes to viewing images, composing in Live View, or changing menu settings, the large LCD is great to have. Perched about where it is on the Nikon D, this button's purpose is obvious: By default when shooting in Creative zone modes Program, Shutter, etc. Also of note from the back and top image below is the gasket around the hot shoe, designed to mate with and weather-seal the EX II flash, introduced earlier this year with the 1D Mark III. Canon EOS 40D top deck of the Canon 40D is more familiar, with only a few differences. The mode dial on the left has a few extra icons, C1, C2, and C3, which are convenient storage areas for oft-used configurations; a welcome addition.

Canon 40D Review

On past models, you had to press the ISO button to see the current setting. There's a nice comfortable divot for the long finger, and the front of the body has some sculpted relief as well. The indent on the 40D seems a little broader than the 5D, and a lot bigger than the 1D-series. Regardless of size, this divot improves control, and better centers the hand for the right Canon EOS 40D every time. New seals protect connection ports, the battery compartment, and the compact flash door.

The frame Canon EOS 40D stainless steel, and the mirror box is high-strength engineering plastic. Holding the Canon 40D is like gripping a well-sculpted rock: The 40D is a little larger in all dimensions, but not as noticeable except in the vertical height of the grip. The bright chrome of the Canon 40D's hot shoe really stands out in the top view.

I thought I'd toss this one view in for Rebel XTi owners considering the upgrade. It is a significant difference stepping up from the XTi to the Canon 40D.


And if you use an infrared remote on your XTi, note that you'll lose that capability with the 40D, because it has no infrared remote sensor. The brightness has been raised as well, to help with bright sunlit conditions, and they both broadened the available color gamut of the display and narrowed the available viewing angle to degrees. Canon says this concentrates more of the light in a smaller cone, rather than spreading it out over a degree area. That means Canon EOS 40D people can crowd around you to see your pictures -- which could be a good thing -- but those who find room will see a brighter image.

It also means that you have a dimmer view of the LCD when holding the camera at extreme angles and shooting in Live View mode. If you set C. This is the same basic technique we've seen on the Olympus E, except the Canon 40D doesn't display the selected focus points like the Olympus models do; you can see them if you look through the viewfinder, but that rather defeats the purpose. The Canon EOS 40D is a megapixel semi-professional digital single-lens reflex camera. It was initially announced on 20 August and was released at  Sensor‎: ‎ x mm CMOS.
