Offering improved viewing and operability, the EOS 400D DIGITAL has a 2.5-inch TFT LCD color monitor with approximately 230,000 pixels to accommodate large fonts in menus and a remarkable viewing angle of 160°. Picture quality and brightness are therefore equally maintained from almost any viewing angle — front and center or upward angle. Brightness is now yours to command in seven levels, with the highest even surpassing that of professional models. Such variable display enables easy image verification in bright outdoor settings as well as low-lit interiors, right after shooting.

New display button (“DISP.”), power lamp, Display Off Sensor, and improved information display make the EOS 400D DIGITAL more user-friendly. Replacing the previous information button, the display button verifies camera setting and shooting data. A new ON/OFF function for the button enhances operation ease while saving energy. Another energy-saving feature is the power lamp, which in a glance reveals the startup state, even when the LCD monitor is off. And if monitor glare is annoying when looking through the viewfinder, you’re sure to appreciate the Display Off Sensor. Located under the eyepiece, it detects the approach of your face and turns off the LCD.

From the new mode name/icon display and battery power display format to a new camera setting screen GUI, EOS 400D DIGITAL functionality has had a comprehensive makeover to ensure every user, from amateur to professional level, can shoot with ease and maximum comfort.
