The 1D III's 45pt AF is faster, its frame rate is higher, its shutter is rated for 3x the actuations, its viewfinder is larger with a 100% view, it is weather sealed ... The extra image detail is always welcomed, but will not be a sole reason for most people to upgrade from a 20D or 30D. They should've disclosed this information on the listing, but remained not to share it. The EOS 40D camera's completely redesigned nine-point AF sensor provides cross-type AF measurement at all nine focusing points for maximum apertures up to f/5.6, The much shorter shutter lag and mirror blackout along with a far faster frame rate and deeper buffer makes it much easier to capture the perfect moments with the 40D - especially action sports. The Live View display will be on your monitor, 5x and 10x zoom is available along with panning the image, the focus can be adjusted using your mouse (switch lens AF on), I did think that the wider angle lens (17-85mm) would be fun for non-astrophotography though. I usually keep careful track of my battery use when I get a new camera. I can't see the borders of the brightness histogram when in bright sunlight. I do with that it had better low-light functionality and maybe even went to 6400 (3200 is alright though) but for the price point you can't go wrong.

This means that images shot with identical shooting parameters (shutter speed, aperture & ISO) are not exposed exactly the same. It should primarily be used when the scene to be captured has some very bright highlights in it along with dark colors. The 40D is also the first DSLR in its class to accept interchangeable focusing screens including the EF-D grid. In the comparison, each camera was fired at its fastest frame rate and fastest shutter speed (1/4000 for the XTi) with a wide open aperture until the buffer were filled. What is apparent is the frame rate and buffer depth difference. That is great stuff. It will show ERR 99 after 5 to 6 shots after reset by unload/reload the battery. Canon: I request that a vertical bar be displayed on the side boundaries of the histogram - maybe you can make it red.

If you press the Zoom Out button while viewing a single image on the LCD screen, it'll take you to a four-image, then a nine-image thumbnail display. The visible difference is often in the form of noise - especially high ISO noise. but in this case, I felt the black block best showed the noise differences I'm seeing in real life shots. While the 1DIII's resolution is similar to the 40D, the per-pixel image quality and low ISO noise yield images that are even more impressive than the 40D's. to compare the 40D to the 30D. I should note here that the 40D's metering is fine - this change does not cause underexposed images.

The 40D is a DSLR, while the Canon R is a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera. :). The XTi's primary advantage over the 30D is the self-cleaning, higher resolution sensor - along with the size/weight/cost factor. The 40D has a pentaprism viewfinder while the XTi utilizes a pentamirror - The 30D and 40D's viewfinders are larger. So, the 14-bit files should be a nice upgraded feature.

Overall, the Canon EOS 40D's image quality is excellent. I didn't get the detail and clarity from the manufacturer's manual that I received from reading this book, hence the title of my review… Canon's specifications for the 40D are listed as 5.7 x 4.2 x 2.9" (145.5 x 107.8 x 73.5mm) - practically identical to the 30D, but my dial calipers say it is .2" (5mm) higher. Extremely fast focusing. Until this time, the lower end Canon DSLR had a couple of desirable feature advantages over the 40D's predecessor, the Canon EOS 30D. BC4.src = 'https://media.the-digital-picture.com/Images/Standard/Canon-EOS-DSLR-Back-Comparison/Canon-EOS-Rebel-XSi-450D.jpg' You can see a good part of the 40D's weight in the photo above. The 40D has a more-rugged stainless steel and magnesium alloy chassis - and feels more solid. This comparison was shot using the Canon EF 200mm f/2.8 L II USM Lens - The Canon EOS 40D announcement was one of the most-anticipated Canon EOS announcements ever. BC1.src = 'https://media.the-digital-picture.com/Images/Standard/Canon-EOS-DSLR-Back-Comparison/Canon-EOS-50D.jpg' The key point being that the viewfinder has been enlarged to accommodate this. In the USA, the Canon EOS 40D is currently shipping in a body-only configuration as well in a kit that includes the It is also one one the noisiest blocks. I got rid of all my Canon gear except for it when I switched to Nikon, I just could not part with it. The Canon 40D has arrived. It is brighter and sharper - eyeglass wearers will find it easier to use as well. If tripod-mounted shots are not time-critical, I will often use this drive mode instead of attaching a remote switch. The EOS 40D becomes the sixth Canon 'prosumer' digital SLR, a line which started back in 2000 with the EOS D30, and how far we've come. But, I don't recommend using it unless necessary as I prefer the contrast/tone curve of a standard shot better. Great Camera - good as the 50d - good lens package. 40D includes a heavier-duty neck strap (with red edges). It, along with the owner's manual, is worth reading if the 40D sounds like the camera for you. it helps me keep horizons level (I seem to have a deficiency in this skill) when I want them to be. Canon 40D. BC5 = new Image(650,490) This is not the complete sealing that Canon's 1-Series cameras receive. The menu button went up, the rest went down. With the same sensor density, the 40D resolves detail very similarly to the XTi/400D - and better than the 30D. The EFS 17-85 lens is great (remember to multiply by 1.6 for comparable 35mm focal lengths). The shutter speed was halved for each 1 stop increase in ISO setting. My 40D arrived with a clean sensor out of the box. Both are DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) cameras that are equipped with an APS-C sensor. Canon 40D Review - 40D Operation. One advantage is that it eliminates need to hold shutter half-pressed while recomposing the frame. I already talked about many of the new/upgraded features in the 40D as they relate to the EOS 30D, but the rest of this 40D-over-XTi/400D advantage list is also shared by the 30D. We saw this in the XTi/400D compared to the 30D. For many cameras, data on sensor performance has been reported by DXO Mark. Fifteen options ranging from the green square (the camera takes care of all settings - point & shoot mode) to fully manual mode (the mode I shoot in if light conditions are constant) are available. Canon 40D still a formidable camera. BC2 = new Image(650,490) It looks very useful in the non-creative modes (including the green square point and shoot mode), but is weighted strongly to ISO 400 in the creative modes. I personally find it a little harder to use, but the change is insignificant. The Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens is my most-frequently-recommended lens for the 1.6x bodies Still quite good. The notable change on my particular model is that I have to press directly over the latch on the right side while closing it - otherwise it pops open again. But, after making the exposures identical (+1/6 EV on the 40D), the 30D has a slight edge at ISO 1600 and 3200 - and the two are about even at ISO 800. This is no big news to many of us, but what caught my attention is the ability to rotate the image +/- 10 degrees within the in-camera trim function. exceptional image quality, ease of operation, speed, modest weight and size, compatibility In my eyes, the 40D noise is equal to the 30D right up through ISO 3200 when identical shooting parameters are used. In this review, we will be comparing 20D and 40D, two Advanced DSLR cameras by Canon. There must be enough flex to prevent the latch from catching otherwise. Thread Status: Not open for further replies. In this review, we will be comparing 90D and 40D, two Advanced DSLR cameras by Canon. This is no exception. The function of Auto ISO varies depending on the shooting mode that is selected - See page 60 in the manual (link below) for the complete details. The improved microlens design likely contributes heavily to the reduced noise in images from this sensor, but it is also likely the reason for the 40D's speed, precision and functionality, minimizing subject recognition problems in the process. To facilitate manual focusing in Live view, a 5x and 10x zoom along with necessary panning functions are available. I thought I did something wrong when I took the comparison pics - and was preparing to re-take them. BC3.src = 'https://media.the-digital-picture.com/Images/Standard/Canon-EOS-DSLR-Back-Comparison/Canon-EOS-30D.jpg' Aside from lower cost, the advantage maintained by the Digital Rebels/xxxDs is the smaller size/weight. From the Canon USA Press Release: I am finding this difference hard to detect when comparing the 40D and 30D side-by-side - I'm not seeing a big difference even in low light. Moving up we find a new button labeled "AF-ON". During Live View, the "AF-ON" button can be pressed to enable autofocusing (the mirror temporarily lowers to make this happen). They do lots of bird photography and candid people shots. A short shutter lag can make the difference between capturing a great shot and just an ordinary one. The EOS 40D combines Canon's tremendous know-how in both the digital and photographic worlds, creating a camera that not only does everything one would expect of a traditional digital SLR, but one that incorporates staggering leaps forward in technological innovation. Some of these feature differences are more or less important to you personally - and I doubt you will care about the neck strap difference. Line up a 40D, 30D and XTi/400D with the same image being reviewed and the 40D's LCD color advantage is nearly as obvious as the size difference. Of course, while the 40D makes a Rebel XTi/400D appear small, the 1D Mark III makes a 40D appear small (without a battery grip at least) (below). It will cost too much money to have it repaired I only use it in manual focus. Yes, I am too impatient to wait the additional 8 seconds (though when mirror lockup was used, the 30D automatically changed to 2 seconds). Reviewed in the United States on February 27, 2009. I no longer expect to see the typical hot shoe paint wear caused by installing/removing flashes. Watch for them at the next wedding or other event you attend. While some have mastered manual focus, I find that the camera is usually better than me at this job (OK - usually MUCH better). The 40D is sold by canon as a level above the 350/400D and it certainly is. And with the IS feature, you will always get outstanding shots! If your needs are for direct lighting, a shoe-mounted flash (bounced) is usually a superior option. At these settings, critically accurate manual focusing is very easy. Live View focus is manual-only with one exception. with the vast Canon system and very reasonable price." While the viewfinder continues to show 95% of the final image framing, the image appears larger in the viewfinder. I use a grid focusing screen in my Canon EOS-1DS Mark II - Yes, the 40D (and XTi) can make use of the higher quality lenses available. Both cameras offer a resolution of 10.1 megapixels. The 40D is more sure-handling, in my opinion. slightly improved vignetting performance over the 30D. While the 40D shares many of the features of the 1DIII, I consider the 1-Series body to be a much better body - which is of course reflected in its cost. In real life shots, the difference between 8 and 10 megapixel images is not big. It is priced that way as well. To reach this resolution in an APS-C sized (1.6x FOVCF) sensor, I also wanted better optics and resolution. The main advantage of the 7D is the auto-focus system. And once again, you must determine if the extra cost is warranted for your needs/wants. The 5D resolution advantage will not be big in real life shots. Sounds right to me. While this should not be remarkable, this experience is not typical - and the new XTi/400D I bought to compare with the 40D came with a VERY dirty sensor. The Canon EOS 40D is a 10.1-megapixel semi-professional digital single-lens reflex camera.It was initially announced on 20 August 2007 and was released at the end of that month. What I especially like is the "My Menu" option that allows up to 6 menu and custom function options to be placed on one menu tab for quick access. when using EF or EF-S lenses featuring maximum apertures of f/2.8 or faster. This is apparently an anomaly on my 40D body as others are saying their models are not as particular. The 1D Mark III shines in this comparison - as it usually does. The combination of the Canon 40D and the 17-85 lens is tremendous. I suggest using an f/4 aperture for comparing, but most below f/8 will work fine. An XTi/400D RAW image that weighs in at 10 MB would become a 14 MB file on the 40D. However, I much prefer the larger grip on the 40D when actually using the camera. Live View is best used in a tripod-based situation, but can work handheld if your DOF (Depth of Field) is deep enough to allow for the inevitable movement (think overhead shots). The Canon EOS 40D is another great SLR camera made by this manufacturer.
