DP Review
24 April 2008
  • Conclusion: 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 sensitivity and 3.0 fps shooting speed) camera.
  • Pros: 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 (especially with kit lens) yet still comfortab...
  • Cons: 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 buttons (without customizing) for ISO or Whi...

Nikon D40x

5 April 2008
  • Summary: For us, the D40x doesn't quite marry the D40's combination of user friendliness, image quality and build to price as successfully as its predecessor, and is unashamedly a product born from the desire/need to be competitive in a crowded and cut-throat marketplace.
  • Pros: Four million more pixels to play with than its baby brother the Nikon D40, improved capture rate (up fom 2.5fps), plus longer life battery (up from 470 shots from a single charge)
  • Cons: These upgraded features are not particularly significant to existing users and don't make a massive difference to operation or image quality, though they do bring the product into sync with the line ups of its rivals (notably Canon's 400D).

  • Excerpt: Camera Test: Nikon D40x18208094219NikonD40xHere's the latest engine swap in DSLRs: The entry-level 6MP Nikon D40 got a 10MP image sensor to become the D40x, putting it in the race with such cost-cutter ten-shooters as the Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi and Sony Alpha 100.

  • Excerpt: The Nikon D40x ($799, estimated street with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX Nikkor; $729, body only) may be small, but its shooting capacity is big. It's a great camera for first-time DSLR buyers set on a 10MP model and Nikon system users who want a lightweight body that's not lightweight in performance.

  • Conclusion: Nikon D40x digital reflex camera 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 pixels have...

  • Excerpt: Following hot on the heels of the wonderful Nikon D40 comes the Nikon D40x, pumping up the first model with some features and functions demanded by consumers. Most important, the D40x now offers a sensor which can produce very low noise 10.2 megapixel images (as opposed to the D40's very low noise...
  • Pros: For this review Nikon again sent us a kit which included the 18-135mm zoom lens, a lightweight, extremely sharp lens which left us frowning at our collection of much more expensive Nikon glass. Whether through more technologically refined manufacturing process or smarter design or the use of the ...
  • Cons: I will always miss the top mounted LCD usually found on digital SLRs — the D40 and D40x don't have them, instead using the enhanced rear screen to display camera status. This design change accommodates the smaller body size of the D40 and it all works very well, but I miss that status LCD. Squeez...
