Nikon D40x

best4reviews.com
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).

  • 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...

Review: Nikon D40x DLSR

Wired
10 May 2007
  • Excerpt: 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. Don’t worry; Nikon totally has your back with the D40x.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: Clunky menu system. Limited lens compatibility. Stripped-down

Nikon D40x

Camera Labs
1 May 2007
  • Summary: The Nikon D40x is one of the more interesting DSLRs around right now because it clearly illustrates both the marketing and monetary value of a 10 Megapixel model over an otherwise identical 6 Megapixel version.
  • Pros: Small, light and comfortable., Very easy to use with helpful menus., Consumer-friendly photos out of the camera., Nikon's legendary metering is rarely fooled.
  • Cons: Features weaker than 10 Mpixel rivals., No auto-focus with certain, older lenses., Some settings require too many button presses., Basic 3-point AF and no DOF preview.

  • Summary: The D40x produces superb colour images, but why is it so expensive compared to the D40? The convoluted controls may be tolerable in the D40, but they're harder to stomach here. The £600 price pitches it against some cameras that either undercut it out-spec it. I bought mine in June 07.

Nikon D40x Digital SLR Review

ePHOTOzine
26 April 2007
  • Summary: While the D40x lacks some of the more sophisticated options of bigger cameras, it's certainly well specified in the budget market and readily capable of taking on the Canon EOS 400D.
  • Pros: 10Mp resolution, Help system, Small and compact, Good quality images, Well saturated colours, Good built-in flash
  • Cons: Shooting speed isn't great, Pictures not super-sharp, Some noise at ISO100, Help system is buried, Only sRGB

Nikon D40x Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: We kunnen er kort over zijn, de Nikon D40x is een erg fraaie en slimme camera die veel kwaliteit biedt voor een lage prijs. De D40 camera werd al enthousiast ontvangen en liet de concurrentie al snel achter zich.
