Canon announced the EOS 400D digital SLR (D-SLR) camera. It is replacing one of the most affordable and well made D-SLR cameras, the EOS 350D. The new model includes a new 10.1 megapixel CMOS image sensor that delivers stunning, professional quality photographs and super-fast image processing, thanks to Canon’s proprietary DiG!C II processor, that ensures the camera is capable of capturing three frames per second (fps) for a burst of up to 27 consecutive frames. The 400D camera also comes with EOS Integrated Cleaning System providing total protection from appearance of sensor dust in images.
