The new Canon EOS 40D digital SLR camera comes bundled with a whole suite of software, pretty much the norm as with all Canon cameras or with all cameras for that matter.
But there is one significant addition to the EOS 40D bundle, the Picture Style Editor 1.0 application.
The new image editing software lets you edit and create your own custom Picture Styles. Picture Style presets in Canon parlance simplify the control of image processing parameters, allowing photographers to customize their shooting to their personal taste or needs.
Each Picture Style preset offers a different color response to suit your shooting requirements â€“ whether itâ€™s subtle skin tones in a portrait shot, or the blue sky of a landscape. Picture Styles make it easy to achieve consistent image outputs when swapping from one camera body to the next.
