Canon pushes proven EOS technology to a new level, providing photographers an unbeatable experience with the EOS 40D. It combines their tremendous know-how in both the digital and photographic worlds, creating a camera that does everything expected of a traditional digital SLR incorporating staggering leaps forward in technology. Enhanced features such as Canon's EOS Integrated Cleaning system, Live View Function, a stunning 3.0-inch LCD monitor and more make a spectacular package all in a sturdy, magnesium alloy body.

Equipped with a 10.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, the EOS 40D allows you to capture images with utmost sharpness and astounding colors. The more powerful DIGIC III Image Processor really aids auto-focusing, accurate white balance and processing time and consumes much less energy than previous versions.

This ultra-fast camera features an impressive shutter speed down to 1/8000 second for the flawless speed shots you can have. The newly-designed, high-precision 9-point wide area AF system ensures that the images are precise and accurate even while focusing on moving subjects!

  • newegg 10.1 Megapixel APS-C Size CMOS Sensor The Canon EOS 40D features a new Canon 10.1 megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor with an extensive ISO range from 100 all the way up to 3200 (in extended mode). With a 14-bit A/D conversion, the Canon EOS 40D provides fine transitions from light to dark tones and a significant drop in digital and shadow noise. The APS-C size sensor with a 3:2 aspect ratio realizes an effective angle of view that’s just 1.6 times the focal length indicated on Canon EF lenses.
  • newegg DIGIC III Image Processor Developed to maximize performance between the capture and recording stages of digital photography, the EOS 40D's DIGIC III processor is faster and more powerful than ever. Combined with Canon's CMOS sensor, the latest-generation DIGIC III Image Processor achieves even higher levels of performance. The entire electronic system is totally re-designed for an incredible combination of speed and image quality, delivering significantly reduced digital noise in shadow areas and superior color reproduction.
  • newegg High-precision 9-Point AF System The newly designed, high-precision 9-point wide-area cross-type AF system incorporates a sensor that is sensitive to both vertical and horizontal lines, enabling faster, and more accurate focus in complex light conditions. All the 9 focus points can be chosen automatically by camera, or adjusted manually using the EOS 40D's intuitive, thumb operated Multi-Controller.
  • newegg Outstanding 6.5fps Continuous Shooting The Canon EOS 40D is one of the fastest DSLRs available at this price, delivering 6.5fps continuous shooting and capturing up to 75 JPEGs or 17 RAW images in one burst, ideal for shooting everything from wildlife to sports.
  • newegg Large 3.0" LCD Screen with Live View Function The Canon EOS 40D features a stunning, ultra large 3.0-inch LCD screen for effortless menu reading and the ultimate reviewing comfort.

  • newegg Integrated Self Cleaning Sensor Unit The Canon EOS 40D features an all-new, Canon-designed Self Cleaning Sensor Unit to combat stray dust that enters the camera and adheres to the image sensor during a lens change. The low-pass filter cleans itself automatically with ultrasonic vibrations, removing dust from the sensor assembly. Dust that has been missed by the integrated Self Cleaning Sensor Unit can be erased with software included in Digital Photo Professional (DPP) Version 3.1. This added software option ensures the cleanest possible image, perfect for printing or archiving.
