CanonCanon 40D SLR review : Canon listened very well to their users and testers. The Canon 40D SLR camera has been improved significantly compared to the 30D. And although most people would look at the sensor immediately, the main improvement is not found there. The amount of pixels has been increased alright to 10 million but pixels are only one thing in a camera. The EOS 40D has been equipped with the latest DIGIC III processor and that is a more important step than you would think. Not only does the new processor improve the image quality, in addition the DIGIC III enables Live View. And it enables faster processing of the signal; the image speed got enhanced to 6.5 frames per second.

Canon EOS 40D - Housing & Viewfinder
For me the main improvements are found in a totally different area. We have been asking for it for ages and finally we got it: a housing that can stand a rain shower and dust. The weather sealing is not as advanced as it is on the EOS 1D series, but you don’t have to cover or hide the camera when it is raining and you are able to shoot problem-free on the beach. The next very important if not the most important improvement is the viewfinder. At last Canon has equipped a camera in this class with a decent viewfinder of a decent size. So finally we got rid of the small viewing angle. The Canon 40D has the ISO visible in the viewfinder and it remains visible during setting which is a welcoming improvement.

Canon 40D SLR camera review
Naturally the sensor size remained the same and the Canon EOS 40D offers a crop factor of 1.6x. It enables continuing the use of EF-S lenses, among them the large wide angle. In front of the sensor a filter is positioned that shakes to remove dust. The same system is found in the EOS 400D and 1D series and it works fine. LetsGoDigital tested the Canon EOS 40D during the EOS Safari 2007 event in Kenya, Africa with a beautiful 400mm f/2.8 telephoto lens and in the Netherlands with a standard EF-S 17-85mm 1:4-5.6 IS USM lens. Our findings can be read in the following Canon EOS 40D review.
