I prefer to have backup cameras use the same batteries as my main cameras. It too easy for me to forget to check backup camera batteries.

I love my 40D, but the batteries won't hold a charge for more than an hour or so.

Then again, I've had most of these batteries since I had my Digital Rebel (2005?), so I guess I shouldn't complain...

Am I being silly having this old school body as a backup?

It's actually my backup of the backup.

I don't think that you are silly to have the 40D as a backup. That doesn't seem silly at all because it is a capable camera that can still produce relevant images.

One thing that may seem a little silly to some people is for someone to be SUPER excited about a backup to a backup.

I mean, there are a few things that I get quite excited about each year, but to get that excited over one's 3rd string camera seems a little bit silly to me.

If you had said that you were excited to have your 40D back as a backup, then it wouldn't seem silly at all. . But to add so much extreme emphasis to just how extremely excited you are about this, by adding the adjective "super", and then to capitalize "SUPER", well, that does seem somewhat silly. . Usually that extreme level of excitement is reserved for key life moments, such as getting married or graduating college or getting the job of your dreams.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

I gave my 40D away... Bought the Fuji XE 3 as my back up. Still have a lot of nice images from the 40D and some great memories :)

I bought a set of kit lens (18-55 & 55-250) and offer them with the 40D to all my friends and family whoever want to play with DSLR before making the big purchase. The set is about 400 miles away from me now for the last few weeks.

My 40D was the back-up to my 5D, which then became the back-up to my 6D, which is now the back-up to the 6D MKII.

I like having a crop body, and the 40D is a solid body that performs well. While technology in other bodies may have surpassed it, it's still a perfectly capable camera that has produced countless images that have made my clients happy.

That's really all I care about.

Now, if I could get some back-up talent to go with all of those back-up cameras, I'd be on to something...
