Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III And EOS 40D Digital SLR



Canon Unveils New Flagship Full-Frame Pro DSLR — the 21.1MP Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III

Low noise CMOS sensor and dual “DIGIC III” image processors power new DLSR aimed to compete with medium-format cameras.

Canon has announced the EOS-1Ds Mark III, the first 35mm-style digital SLR to break the 20MP barrier.

The new model combines a 21.03 million image pixel self-cleaning sensor and maximum 5 fps shooting rate in a body that’s nearly identical in appearance to the EOS-1D Mark III, and shares most of that camera’s features and specifications as well.

The EOS-1Ds Mark III has a larger viewfinder than the EOS-1D Mark III (and EOS-1Ds Mark II also), a narrower ISO range of ISO 100-1600 (plus 50 and 3200) and support for the UDMA protocol for much quicker writing to an inserted CompactFlash card.

Long anticipated follow-up to Canon 30D features quicker 6.5 fps shooting speed.

Canon EOS 40D Review

by Philip Greenspun; created September 2007

The Canon 40D gives you the same 10-megapixel resolution as the Rebel XTi for nearly double the price, double the size, and double the weight. The sensor is the same physical size as on the Digital Rebel, resulting in a waste of glass when using lenses designed for the full-frame EOS bodies (film, 5D, and 1Ds). Why would anyone want to buy the Canon 40D?

Here are the reasons:

  • two control wheels instead of one: faster user interface especially when using metered manual exposure or setting exposure compensation
  • superior durability and protection from dust and rain
  • the larger physical size puts controls in more natural positions for most adult hands
  • better/brighter viewfinder and larger rear LCD
  • (for soccer moms) better autofocus system and faster motor drive increase potential for capturing peak action at a sports event Read more
