Nikon D40x


Last December, Nikon introduced the D40, an entry-level digital single-lens reflex camera with a very good 3X zoom lens and a nice price of $600. A mere four months later, the company announced the D40x, an enhanced version of the D40 that raises the...

Excellent image quality ; Very useful in-camera help system

No depth of field preview ; Lacks exposure bracketing

The D40X is a great bargain, as long as you can live without exposure bracketing, depth of field preview, and dust removal.

Nikon D40X Review


The Nikon D40 was announced just under four months ago, and yet here we are with a new version of that camera. The D40X has the same compact lightweight body and easy to use control layout, in fact the only external physical difference is the badge....

Resolution and sharpness on par with the best of the current ten megapixel bunch A demonstrable resolution gain at lower sensitivities, less obvious at ISO 800 and 1600 Surprisingly good build quality, tight shut lines Very compact and lightweight...

No lens motor in body means non-AF-S/AF-I lenses are manual focus only Disappointingly RAW+JPEG setting only records Basic quality JPEG's No status LCD panel on top of camera (we hate to see these go) No exposure or white balance bracketing No hard...

No one was more surprised that me when Nikon passed through the press releases for the D40X. Just under four months since the arrival of the six megapixel D40 and Nikon were about to reveal a ten megapixel version of the same (save for a base ISO 100...

Review: Nikon D40x DLSR


Let's face it; if you've grown accustomed to a diet of point and shoot cameras, switching to a digital SLR can be a daunting prospect....

Great image quality. Lightweight and pleasing to hold. Bright viewfinder. Lots of in-camera retouching options, including RAW conversion. Performs well across ISO range of 100-1,600. Tons of help options for photo n00bs. Good battery life

Clunky menu system. Limited lens compatibility. Stripped-down

Nikon D40x review: Nikon D40x


Nikon D40x

Comfortable, compact body design; very low noise at higher ISOs; highly customizable menus; 10.2-megapixel CCD sensor

Slow kit lenses; RAW editing software costs extra; controls can be awkward; occasionally slow to focus; no automatic sensor cleaning; RAW-plus-JPEG mode limited to basic instead of fine JPEG compression

The Nikon D40x makes a very nice first dSLR, though experienced SLR shooters looking for a Nikon should spend the extra cash for the D80.

It's hard to critique an award-winning 10.2-megapixel digital SLR when it features an advanced imaging system and takes excellent pictures. Overall, the Nikon D40x gets two thumbs up for picture quality and ergonomics. While this model lacked several...

Nikon D40x Testrapport


Nikon D40x digital reflexkamera Med Nikon D40x överraskar Nikon oss på flera områden. För det första genom att tillverka en nästan likadan modell som D40:n. Nikon D40x skiljer sig bara på några små punkter från Nikon D40 och det mest påfallande är att...

Nikon D40x review


At the introduction of the D40, Nikon did not speak expressively about the subject pixels, for the D40 ‘only' had six million, which seems rather sufficient to me for most applications. It is for this reason surprising that, rather rapidly after the...

With the Nikon D40x, Nikon surprises us in many ways. First of all by placing an almost identical model right next to the D40. The Nikon D40x only slightly deviates from the Nikon D40 on some points, and what strikes us the most is that the amount of...

Nikon D40x Review


Despite being aimed at the new digital SLR owner, the D40x is still a fairly complex camera in terms of functionality and the number of external controls that it offers, with around 16 in...

The Nikon D40x is essentially a 10 megapixel version of the slightly older 6 megapixel D40, and thankfully the increase in resolution hasn't negatively affected the overall image quality. Indeed,...
