Canon 40d Dandelion
Shot on the 10.1mp Canon 40d dSLR – which was released way back in 2007 – this picture of a Dandelion in-bloom was taken in April 2022, a whole 15 years on since this classic APS-C ‘prosumer’ digital camera first saw the light and it still performs fantastic.
Our camera sensors are now at three and four times the megapixel size of the lowly 40d, but if you know how to take a picture, then you can pick up not only this model but many other older digital cameras that are considered obsolete by today’s standards, for prices a fraction of their original values from internet auction sites, such as eBay.
So if you just want to enjoy capturing good photos with tried and tested cameras from the past, then technology’s march forward is frankly your greatest friend, because people offload their ‘old kit’ whenever the camera manufacturers release a brand new, all-singing, all-dancing digital behemoth.
