Superlative Image Quality
EOS 40D’s 10.1 Megapixel Canon CMOS Sensor (Actual size)
Canon’s new 10.1-million
pixel CMOS sensor uses technology straight
from the professional EOS-1D Mark III. It’s
totally re-designed, reaching new levels of lightgathering efficiency and low-noise performance.
The APS-C size sensor has the same effective
lens conversion factor (1.6x) as the previous
EOS 30D. In conjunction with the new DIGIC III
Image Processor and this new CMOS sensor,
the EOS 40D images break new ground in total
image quality.
14-bit Depth for Greater Color Range
“
©Barbara Bordnick
With the EOS 40D, analog to digital signal conversion is executed by a 14-bit processor (16,384
tones), which generates digital data of fine
gradation without tonal skipping. Canon’s proprietary RAW and new small RAW (sRAW) images
take full advantage of this rich 14-bit gradation
and can be processed with Canon’s Digital Photo
Professional software. JPEG images with 8 bits
per color derived from 14-bit data are provided
in four sizes (10.1MP, 8.0MP, 5.3MP or 2.5MP),
which also are available in the EOS 40D’s RAW +
JPEG mode.

Canon’s Newest Digital
Powerhouse
Developed to maximize performance
between the capture and recording
stages of digital photography, the
EOS 40D’s ≥ III Image Processor is faster
and more powerful than ever. This latest-generation ≥III Image Processor works in concert
with Canon’s CMOS sensor to achieve even
higher levels of performance. It’s a key reason
for both the EOS 40D’s incredible speed and
improved image quality. Color reproduction
and noise reduction in low light situations are
dramatically improved.
As Fast As The Action
The EOS 40D is the fastest digital
SLR ever offered at this price
level. It shoots as fast as an
incredible 6.5 fps, making it ideal for everything from wildlife to sports. And that’s for up
to 75 JPEGs, or 17 RAW images in one burst.
Whether it's the 0.15-second startup time, the
high-speed mirror drive, the brief shutter lag
time (only 59 msec.), or the predictive AF
focusing for capturing the action, the EOS 40D
will get you your shot.
The EOS 40D can shoot up to 6.5 fps and capture up to
75 JPEGs or 17 RAW in one burst
The EOS 40D’s Self
Cleaning Sensor Unit combats stray dust that
can enter the camera when changing a lens or
in dusty conditions. The sensor’s front low-pass
filter is cleaned automatically with ultrasonic
vibrations every time the camera is turned on
or off. Removed dust adheres to material
around the filter to ensure it stays off. Dust
missed by the camera’s cleaning unit can be
removed by
Canon’s software
solution and Dust Delete Data test shot, which
identifies the location and size of dust spots
on the image file and erases them.* This onetwo punch of both hardware and software protection ensures a dust free image, saving hours
of time in post-production.
When you demand flawless performance
again and again, choose the EOS 40D. It
has a high-speed shutter unit, designed to
respond in an instant, reaching a top
shutter speed of 1/8000 sec. and tested
to withstand a remarkable 100,000-cycle
shutter life. A top flash sync speed of 1/250

AF Sensor Configuration
Some of the most advanced
features from Canon’s professional cameras are incorporated into the EOS 40D’s
design. Each of its nine AF
points is now a full cross-type
sensor, when lenses f/5.6 or
faster are used. It’s better than
ever at grabbing focus on tough
subjects without much detail. Sensitivity is a
stunning EV-0.5 to EV18. The center AF point
holds a world’s first: two diagonal, high-precision
line sensors, in addition to the standard crosstype sensors. They’re active with any lens f/2.8
or faster, giving more accuracy and precise AF. The
camera has a number of focus modes, including
One-Shot AF, AI Focus AF, AI Servo AF and manual.

All the choices the advanced photographer
could want. 35-zone Evaluative metering is
ideal for quick shooting with auto exposure.
The EOS 40D also has a spot meter, which
analyzes 3.8% of the composition, perfect for
ultra-precise metering. Center-weighted average
metering measures the entire composition, yet
places emphasis on the center of the image.
With partial metering, 9% of the image is
metered. With these versatile metering
options, it’s always easy to get the

Silent Shooting with Live View
Function
The EOS 40D CMOS sensor technology brings
new silent shooting to the Live View Function.
The sensor has an electric first-curtain shutter
function that enables shooting with the EOS 40D’s
mechanical shutter completely open. As a result,
it’s possible to minimize the sound of the shutter
cocking, or (in mode 2) postpone it, making
the camera barely audible as you take a shot.
Customized Operation
The EOS 40D has 24 distinct Custom Functions
with 62 settings organized according to camera function that can be accessed from the
camera’s Menu. Parameters like Exposure, ISO
and bracketing increments, noise reduction
and highlight tone priority, AF, drive speed,
flash, button and dial assignments, among
others, can be customized to suit both the
shooting situation and your predilections.

Photographers seeking to produce their
own gallery-grade inkjet prints have had
limited choices until now. Understanding
the demands of professional photographers—especially those who shoot with
the EOS System—Canon has responded
with the imagePROGRAF series Photo
Printers featuring impressive new technologies that bring unprecedented quality
and performance to large format photo
printing. It’s never been simpler or more
cost-effective to produce gallery-grade
prints at home or in the studio.
LUCIA 12-Color Ink

prints of exceptional tonal detail. The inks are
pigment-based, ensuring long-lasting prints with
excellent archival characteristics. imagePROGRAF
printers ship with a starter set of all 12 inks.
Photo-Lithographic UserReplaceable Dual Print Heads
An advanced
head design
uses two print
heads—each
with 15,360
nozzles—yielding over 30,000 nozzles. This not only makes
possible extremely high output resolution but
also ensures faster, more reliable printing.
Photographers no longer need to choose between
print speed and image quality. The large number
of nozzles also substantially increase print
head life so that the printer requires less frequent
maintenance. And because the print heads
are user-replaceable, maintenance can be performed with minimal downtime and no costly
service calls.

16-Bit Printing Support
While conventional inkjet printers are 8-bit-perchannel devices, requiring a conversion from
16 bits somewhere along the workflow, the
imagePROGRAF printers provide advanced direct
output support for 16-bit files. A supplied plugin enables printing of 16-bit RAW images directly
from Digital Photo Professional software. Also
included is an export module for direct printing
of 16-bit files from Adobe® Photoshop®.

gamut than conventional inkjet printers, delivering a color range that rivals color slide film.
The dye-based ink set further ensures vividly
Canon’s 17-inch, wide-format imagePROGRAF iPF5100
features the exclusive LUCIA 12-color pigment ink set that
yields a tremendous range of colors and grays. For smooth,
detailed color and black and white images, no matter the
media. Canon’s FINE photo-lithographic heads ensure
accurate plotting of even the finest details thanks to over
30,000 nozzles. Matte Black ink and Black ink cartridges
are both loaded in the printer at the same time, enabling
automatic switching without wasting time or ink.
Canon’s high-precision
FINE (Full-photolithography
Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) print heads each
have thousands of nozzles designed to release
microscopic ink droplets as small as 1 picoliter
in a single pass, resulting in fast, high resolution
printing. Capable of plotting thousands of ink
droplets each second, the high-density nozzle
pitch produces sharper detail and less grain.
10-Color Pigment
Ink System
Canon imagePROGRAF
printers include support for a wide range
of papers and specialty output media,
such as RC photo
papers, transparent film, and fine
art papers.
Superior carriage
design enables the printer
to handle a wide range of media thicknesses
and finishes. Moreover, the Media Configuration
Tool supplied with the printer enables users to
update the software, using a periodically
published database, to accommodate new
Canon and other popular media as they
become available.
Featuring the same LUCIA
pigment ink found in the
imagePROGRAF printers, the PIXMA Pro9500’s
10-color pigment ink set produces professionalquality, archival prints. The Gray, Photo Black
and Matte Black ink produce monochrome
photographs of unrivaled quality on fine art
and glossy paper. Gray ink reduces grain,
banding and metamerism and virtually eliminates
color shifts. Unlike Black ink that increases
contrast, Matte Black ink increases black density
on fine art papter while maintaining detail in
shadows. With 10 individual ink tanks, users
can replace a single color, reducing waste and
saving money. Since the Pro9500’s ink is less
sensitive to light and environmental factors,
prints have incredibly smooth gradations and
are archival.
Canon ChromaLife100 ink technology also
delivers prints that withstand the test of time.
PIXMA Pro prints will resist fading for up to
100 years when kept in select albums. When
combined with genuine Canon photo media,
prints typically exhibit 30-year light fastness
and 10-year gas fastness.

Long-Lasting Photos
For the highest quality color and grayscale photographs,
up to 13" x 19", one needs to look no further than the
PIXMA Pro9500. With the LUCIA 10-color pigment ink
system, there’s no other printer out there that can print
both stunning color and smooth black and white photographs like the Pro9500. The inclusion of Gray, Matte and
Photo Black pigment tanks, combined with 3 pl droplets
ensure the smoothest gradations possible and the results
are prints that will astound.
Capable of quickly printing lab-quality prints up to 13" x
19", Canon’s PIXMA Pro9000 raises the bar thanks to its
combination of speed and versatility. Its FINE print head
generates a maximum resolution of 4800 x 2400 dpi
and ChromaLife100 dye-based inks create long lasting,
beautiful photos. Canon’s Easy-PhotoPrint Pro software,
including plug-ins for Digital Photo Professional V2.1 and
Adobe Photoshop CS/CS2/CS3, combined with a new
printer driver for advanced color control, ensuring accurate
prints from the start.
