The Canon 40D is coming!

The wait is over, it is official… the Canon 40d is coming at the end of September. According to reports the new 40D will have a 10.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor with extensive noise reduction technology and 14-bit conversion. A 6.5 fps, burst rate up to 75 consecutive JPEGs or 17 RAW images and DIGIC III Image Processor with a magnesium-alloy exterior, shutter durability-tested to 100,000 cycles, top speed 1/8000, top x-sync speed 1/250.

The 40D will also have EOS Integrated Cleaning System, Picture Style settings, Spot metering, and Highlight Tone Priority for advanced in-camera image control and a large 3.0-inch LCD monitor with advanced Live View Function and new options for reduced shutter time lag and quiet operation.

Sounds good? It does to me! I am very excited for this release and will be saving hard core starting right now… the US retail price is supposed to be $1299 for body and $1499 for body + EF 28-135IS lens, not too bad.

What do you think?


Digg!
