Canon EOS-40D Information

Canon refreshed much of its mainstream camera lineup last month, bringing a number of older models up to 7 or 10 megapixels while addding new features. The EOS-400D, better known as the Digital Rebel XTi in North America, was an especially significant update as it introduced features to an entry-level DSLR that were not even present in the company's otherwise superior EOS-30D. Today, information surfaced courtesy of Swedish site Fosfor Gadgets that reveals an imminent upgrade to the mid-range professional camera. The EOS-40D receives the 10.1-megapixel sensor of the Rebel XTi as well as the self-cleaning sensor that reduces dust artifacts. Many other aspects of the new camera will remain unchanged over the 30D, but logic dictates that the 40D should receive its less expensive counterpart's enhanced processing as well. Its price should match the $1300 of the existing unit when it reaches the market soon.
