Not a Canon expert, but I think the 450 is a lower spec than the 40D. The Canon crowd will soon tell you for sure.

Why does he want to swap?

Re: Camera Swap

Ah, right. So the 450 would be a backup/second body? I still think that the 40D is the better camera though.

Re: Camera Swap

The 40D is a better camera than the 450D.

Although the 450 has a higher pixel count (12.5 vs 10) there are more advanced options and controls on the 40D. The 400D came out alongside the 40D - whereas the 450D came out midway between the 40 & 50D's.

The three digit camera's are a more "beginners level" DSLR than the double digit "Enthusiast" Bodies.

Re: Camera Swap

I WOULD SAY EITHER KEEP THE 40D, OR UPGRADE TO THE 7D, WHICH IS A TRULY EXCEPTIONAL CAMERA. I THINK YOU WOULD BE GOING BACKWARDS, IF YOU GOT THE 450D

Re: Camera Swap

Hi
i own both of these cameras and both are good,
but the 40d is a better build and as a faster shutter speed.

I would keep the 40d myself. check out the reviews on both cameras.
