Here is a page that compares the Canon 40D and 50D side by side

Because the 50D is the newer model it is quite a bit more expensive than the 40D. However, the reviews don't find that the quality has improved very much. Unless the 50D has a feature you simply must have, the 40D is going to be a much better value.

Neither has video capabilities. If you want the best video capabilities as well as top-quality still photos, without spending tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, take a look at the 5D Mark II. This camera has amazing video capabilities for the price (under $3k). Most camera stores have a long waiting list so if you want this model you will have to put your name on a list and wait at least a few weeks before you get your camera.

Serial number


With newer Canons you have to run a software program to "initialize" the board when you replace it. The board comes blank, and you have to add the program and settings to run the camera. The software also allows you to replace the serial numbers, do exposure and auto focus adjustments etc. Canon does not sell this proprietary software. You would have to send the camera to Canon and they would charge you the set repair price. Wish I had better news. But try adding the latest firmware. I am not sure if the 40D is the cutoff for this or it started with the 50D. You have to do this with all current Canon models.

I keep getting err 30 on my cannon 50d. I think I need a new shutter. How long would it take to replace it? I am going out of town Friday.


Hi, Unfortunately having a shutter replaced, when sending the camera off to Canon takes 8-12 weeks in my experience.

Is the canon eos 40d,the same as the canon 40d,if not whats the difference,can you answer please


They are the same thing. There is only one Canon EOS 40D. If you've seen it listed differently it's just that they've left out the EOS prefix. All Canon DSLR cameras are named EOS.

How do I have the viewfinder image show in the LCD display


The EOS 350D doesn't have that function (Live View). You need to shoot with the viewfinder. Only later models of D-SLRs have Live View functions (EOS 500D, 50D, 40D, etc). You can however, playback your captured shots by pressing the "Play" button

Canon 40d won't turn on, LCD is blank.


There are several different things that can cause the camera to not start up. Refer to your user manual to check each of these items. If you don't have your user manual, you can download it here.

1) The battery is not properly installed in the camera. (p.26)
2) Make sure the battery compartment cover is closed. (p.26)
3) Make sure the CF card slot cover is closed. (p.28)

In addition, the battery may not have been properly recharged. Double check that the charger is plugged into a working outlet, and double check that it shows that the battery is fully charged.

If none of these fix the problem then you have a defective camera - one of the switches for the battery compartment or the CF card slot cover may be not properly indicating that the door is closed. If that's the case, you need to either return it to the place of purchase as defective, or send it in to Canon for warranty repair.

Cannon lenses


All canon EF lenses (and compatibles e.g. Sigma EX) can be used with both analog and digital  EOS-bodies. Depending on the sensor size (usually smaller than a 35 mm negative) a crop-factor due to the smaller field of view must be considered.  Example: Canon EF 50mm/1.8 lens used on a digital EOS (40D, crop factor 1.6) equals a 80mm lens (50mm x 1.6) compared to analog cameras using 35mm film. Some digital EOS-models can also use EF-S lens-series.

New Canon EOS 50D-aperature stays at 0, and won't autofocus.


Send it back ASAP to get the problem corrected in warranty also see if Ritz or another camera store can figure it out before you send it off. Consider getting a warranty from Squaretrade.com within 90 days of your purchase I hope this helps. They also have accidental damage protection too for a reasonable rate.

Canon 40D can not turn on


Same problem. Fully charged main battery. In my case, I hadn't used the camera in over 6 months. All I did was pull the main battery and then pulled the small CR 2016 button cell battery located inside the main battery compartment and re-inserted both batteries. The camera made a quiet click and then turned on with the main power switch and asked to reset the date and time. Works fine now. If this doesn't work just purchase a new button cell.
