The Canon 40D DSLR camera is one of the best on the photography market, which you can buy at the price of $1100-1500 depending on the year of manufacture and the KIT.
As we all know Canon i maybe the leading camera company on the market with the highest number of sales all over the world. And that's why the 40D DSLR camera from Canon is also one of the best models that you can afford if you want to become a good photographer.
The model was released in August 2007 on the Japanese photography expo in Tokio. Canon 40D is a 10.1- megapixel semi-professional DSLR camera with a 3/4 sensor. It accepts EF and EF-S lenses and all kind of filters. The available image sizes/resolutions are 3888 x 2592; 2816 x 1880; 1936 x 1288. It accepts JPEG and RAW formats of the images and has a 9-point TTL CMOS sensor for the auto focus.
The camera is supplied with the DIGIC III image processor, which allows the best sharpness of the images even in macro-mode! The spot metering is approximately 3.8% at the center. There is a 3" LCD monitor for a better view of the objects.
I use the camera from more than an year and can say, that it is really the best one that you could buy at this price and also the quality and the sharpness of the photos are really high. There is almost no "noise"in the images taken in low-light conditions and also the exposure is on a high level. The battery hold up to 3 hours of shooting or 440 images and I have proofed it by myself. The only thing that I can say as a conclusion is that this is really the best investment that you could make and you won't sorry about it!
