AF Assist Beam
« on: January 09, 2013, 01:32:32 AM »
Do any canon SLR's have Af assist built into the body?

My 40D doesn't have one and it annoys the hell of me when i have to use onboard flash with those annoying strobes.

Is their a techinical reason why they shouldn't be used. Canon point and shoot use them and the nikon 5200 has it as well.

Your 40D will fire the popup flash for AF assist. 

I have no idea why Canon doesn't include a dedicated lamp, maybe to sell more Speedlites?   :-X
