SUPER Exciting to have her "40D" back as a backup...

... for only 75 bucks. Here are some photos after a little TLC with a toothbrush and some soap on the body. 20K miles out of 100K on the engine. Functions as new and I love it. I started out shooting weddings with a 40D back in 2011 and upgraded very soon due to GAS issue. I have many good memories and happy moments with this body, and some images are still in my current portfolio on my website. Therefore, I am having it again. With a little knowledge I have gained, I have no fear using it as the main body for wedding and I am super exciting to take it to wedding again :)

Am I being silly having this old school body as a backup?
Would you have a 40D as a backup body for weddings?

One of the last 'prosumer' grade cameras, before Canon downgraded the nnD feature set

It's actually my backup of the backup. I use 5d3 and 6d side by side throughout the day so they are each other backup. The 40 won't be out of the bag most days unless either the 5d3 or 6d is out of order.
Another time I use 3rd body is during Church wedding. I mount the 3rd body + 24-70 (used to be 70d and now 40d) and remote trigger from my main bodies to get shots of the Bride and her Father from above or the back of the Church. The 70D will be for sale.

I have a 50D as the back up to the back up. I think they are an outstanding deal on ebay right now.

A back up camera is just that. In case all other camera's experience issues and won't function, I grab the back up. In that situation I would be happy with any camera. So, a 40D should work nicely as a back up. I still have a 40D and a 30D that I keep in the trunk for those situations.

Nice job and it looks great. those 40 and 50 D's really did a great job back when. Used mine for sports with a 70-200 and got some great shots.

I still have my 40D.. I could not bear to get rid to it... My backup to a back up is the EOS M :) I use the EOS M every wedding. I throw a fisheye eye on it for some dancing images when I get bored :)

I had a 50D for three years and used it for a lot of low light work, it punches above it's weight.
