Just like the EOS 350D the 400D is made from three main materials; a stainless steel chassis (blue in this diagram), the mirror box which is made of high-strength 'engineering plastic' (red in the diagram) and the body made of a special lightweight 'engineering plastic' which also provides some electromagnetic shielding.

Reviews Word on the street for the Canon EOS Kiss Digital X


9.0
1/30th sec, F5.6, ISO 100 At 100 ISO the picture is clean, well detailed and noise free, everything we've come to expect from a Canon DSLR.

7.8
The LCD display grew from 1.8 to 2.5 inches, which essentially squeezed the status/info LCD into the ether.

9.0
In terms of looks, build and sheer usability, this tiny powerhouse of a camera borrows heavily from its acclaimed forerunner, the hugely successful and very likeable eightmegapixel 350D.
