The Canon EOS 40D: made to be challenged

EOS 40D Advanced amateur photographers have long desired a digital SLR that matches the power and speed of professional models. With the EOS 40D, Canon delivers.

Capturing 6.5 photos every second for up to 75 shots, the EOS 40D devours every instant of the action – from the decisive moment of the big game to wild animals in flight. 10.1 Megapixels of resolution and a high precision AF system ensure that you capture every detail. With a Live View mode using the 3.0” LCD, you can aim high or low without missing the shot. And with a start-up time of just 0.15 seconds, it’s ready to shoot when you are.

A magnesium alloy body with additional weather seals gives the EOS 40D lasting durability and protection from the elements. Inside, the
EOS Integrated Cleaning System helps to keep the sensor clear of dust. Compatible with the full range of EF and EF-S lenses, EX-series Speedlite flash units and a new Wireless File Transmitter, the EOS 40D puts the power of professional photographers in the hands of everybody.
