After Amazon jumped the gun yesterday, Canon has officially announced its 40D camera. Crave reports on it here. They conveniently made a table that compares the 30D and 40D’s features, many of which I wrote about yesterday.
The final point worthy of note is the price: $1,299 for the body. That is very comparable to what the 30D had been retailing for up until yesterday.
The largest difference is that the control buttons, now located below the screen, have been moved from the left side of the screen to fit in that monster lcd.
The next time I post about this camera will be after it’s release when it starts getting reviewed.
