We try out Canon's latest semi-pro DSLR

The Canon EOS 40D is facing a lot more competition than any of its predecessors, but still manages to set the benchmark for mid-range semi-professional DSLR cameras. Improvements to build quality, performance and image quality are a significant step up...

We had our eyes on Nikon's awesome-looking D300 ' but Canon's 40D has distracted us by offering similar specs for substantially less cash

Solid build. Good controls. Great results

Low-res screen. No HDMI

Canon EOS 40D review

 

With so many cheaper rivals the 10MP EOS 40D better be good

Huge LCD screen ; Impressive continuous shooting speed ; 10-megapixels

No great advances in image quality

If you need 6.5fps shooting and you want a tough, long-lasting camera, the 40D is great value for money

Canon EOS 40D

 

Canon's decision to upgrade its popular 30D SLR for serious amateurs was no great surprise. The 30D was an outstanding camera, but in some ways an infuriating one, and the new 40D irons out most of the wrinkles while adding some great new features

More megapixels, Excellent colour rendition, Wider ISO range, Useful extras, such as Live View, New custom modes

Some idiosyncratic functions

A beautifully engineered upgrade that's a no-brainer for Canon fans

To go along with its weighty proportions, the 40D has a dense set of controls that can be initially challenging.

Canon EOS 40D review

 

The EOS 40D is the latest mid-range DSLR from Canon and sees several enhancements and refinements over its predecessor the EOS 30D. It faces stiff competition from several models, including the soon-to-be-released Nikon D300. Daniel Lezano finds out...

Canon needed the EOS 40D in its range as the 30D was seriously showing its age. The two megapixel increase could be seen by some as not good enough, especially with the imminent arrival of the Nikon D300, but 10.1-million pixels is more than good...
