10.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor
Canon’s CMOS sensor gives the camera a wide dynamic range, retaining subtle details in shadow and highlight areas. An improved pixel design and on-chip noise reduction ensure clean, crisp images throughout the ISO range. Images are converted at 14 bits for finer gradations and superior colour reproduction.

6.5 fps shooting
The EOS 40D captures up to 6.5 frames per second for a continuous burst of up to 75 large JPEG images (17 in RAW).

Wide-area AF with 9 cross type points
The high precision AF system employs 9 cross type points for precise focusing on both horizontal and vertical planes. The central AF point offers sensitivity up to f/2.8. Points are spread out across the AF frame to better accommodate off-centre subjects.

3.0" LCD with Live View mode
The bright 3.0" LCD provides pin-sharp definition for checking focus and composition, with 10x magnification for finer details. When shooting from awkward positions, Live View mode gives you the option of framing your image from the LCD.

DIGIC III processor
Fast and highly accurate, DIGIC III processes images at 14 bits for finer colour gradations. DIGIC III minimizes power consumption for prolonged battery life and delivers instant 0.15 second start up time.

EOS Integrated Cleaning System
Canon’s built-in dust prevention and cleaning system works to keep the sensor clean. A combination of technologies reduces, repels and removes dust and includes a Self-Cleaning Sensor Unit that shakes dust from the sensor with each power on.

Picture Style
Picture Style presets provide easy control over image processing parameters. Each style offers a different colour response. Picture Style presets are customizable in-camera or through the supplied Picture Style Editor software.

Magnesium alloy body
A durable magnesium alloy body with environmental seals protects the camera from the rigours of heavy use.

EF lenses and accessories
The EOS 40D is compatible with over 60 EF and EF-S lenses, and all EX Series Speedlite flash units. Wireless shooting and remote file transfers are possible with the optional Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E3.

Connectivity
Video Out allows reviewing on a TV screen. Connect with USB 2.0 Hi-speed for fast data transfers.
