40D , Any One Use It for Backup Camera ?
Mar 24, 2011

My 40D is officially a backup for my 5D2 or my D700 (until either 7D or 60D comes along).

The metal body and high frame rate has served me well around the world.

What I like the most is it's very high dynamic range, better than 5D and 5D2, even Dpreview showed the excellent level of dynamic range on 40D. And also it's color depth and color tone. The skin tone is not as good as 1D3, but the color depth gave me flexibility.

The High iso is not as good as 5D2 or D700 or even 550D, but I encloed the iso-3200 sport shots. I will upload newer stuffs later.

Of course these photos below are soft, it was not the good lens.

dying flowers, it's almost end of the season

I love this camera
