        Comments about Canon EOS 40D Digital SLR (Body Only):

        For a professional photographer this camera is incredible. It is fast, smaller than the full frame Canons, and can handle its own in durability.

        I am not really a pro though. I shoot in full manual almost exclusively, and for that, my xti, is annoying. The reason is, it demands you hold down a button while turning a wheel to adjust the aperture.

        The 40d is an an incredible upgrade getting around this with a second dial on the back of the camera. Though it is a bit bigger and heavier than my xti, it is also much better in low light.

        The 50d is good too, but has too many megapixles (they add noise). This is the sweet spot of Canon's low end line. It is too bad they do not add this interface to the rebel. But I understand.

        I have owned this camera for the past year and a half and have no real complaints. I have never owned a camera that I have been more happy with. I am a converted Nikon owner and very pleased with the Canon 40D.

        Comments about Canon EOS 40D Digital SLR (Body Only):

        I purchased this camera to step up from the 6.3MP Digital Rebel with had a limited shots of 4 continuous frames at 2.5fps. This camera has plenty of extras such as 2 settings in continuous (3.5fps or 6.5fps). Then with being able to shoot up to 65 frames (JPEG) or 17 RAW it has met most all the situations that I have encountered. While shooting quick single shots, focus is quick and the string before the processer needs time out, is normally very accomidating. Once trained to think out what dial to adjust, this unit provides quick metering adjustments while still monitoring through the viewer.
        Live view is a plus while on tripod shooting still life images. It allows camera to possition at near ground level and set up shot without having to bury my face in the dirt to set up the shot.
        Highlight alert allows warning of blowout of lighting in image while previewing and therefore enables a chance to retake shot with altered settings. Bracked shooting is also easy to perform as well as shooting white balance bracketed shots.
        Summary, both the Canon 40D and 50D have features that seriously expand the ability for the intermediate photographer. I personally recommend purchase the extended battery pack which doubles the shooting time (uses 2 batteries instead of the single), has duplicated shutter and function buttons for vertical shots, and enables installation of Canon's hand strap the allows the camera to grip the hand like a loose glove and improves grip confidence while shooting and holding the camera.

          Comments about Canon EOS 40D Digital SLR (Body Only):

          I received this camera from my wife for Christmas and I was very impressed with it. It is constructed very well and has held up in some very harsh weather conditions. I did have to send it in to the service department beacuse of a line that appeared in all of my shots. The service dept took care of this problem in a timely manner. You will love the quality of pictures that you get with this camera. I am still getting aquainted with digital after conevrting from film. I have used Nikon film cameras for many years and now switched over to Canon. I am glad I did and wished that I have done it sooner. I mainly use this camera for landscaping and architecture photos. All of my shots had came out very sharp and detailed. You will definetely love this camera.

            Comments about Canon EOS 40D Digital SLR (Body Only):

            I have shot with several cameras over my carear, and with the exception of the 1D mark III, its the best camera I have worked with. The body felt very comfortable in my hands and was a very comfortable weight, it wasn't too light and felt like a toy, nor did it feel like I was lugging around a brick. The high FPS also helped out when I was taking wakeboarding pictures and they came out very clear. Overall I was so impressed with it I convinced a cousin to buy one for himself and gladly stand behind it.

              I am a photography student and this camera is great for my needs. It allows for an easy transition between auto and manual. Heavier than most DSLRs, which I like because I can't stand the light cameras. Takes AMAZING action/sports shots. I'm having some issues with corrupted images, and just got it back from the shop, so hopefully this has been fixed.
