  • 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 increased; something that wasn't very important according to Nikon. Where it could be a bit confusing the consumers and us, for the competition it's a killer.

  • 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. That it only took four months for the D40 to leap from six to ten megapixels begs the simple question: why Nikon didn't just release the D40X in the first instance?
  • 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 comfortable to use, Kit lens is better quality than many others, Great in-use performance, very responsive, short black-out time, very fast media write, Good fast auto focus system (on...
  • 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 White Balance, No depth-of-field preview, Occasional visibility of moire artifacts (although seldom), Fixed exposure steps (1/3 EV), Disappointing automatic white balance perform...

What Digital Camera
2 March 2008
  • Excerpt: The 10.2-megapixel Nikon D40x is intended to bridge the gap between the entry-level D40 and enthusiast-level D80, and as such takes a bit from both models.

Nikon D40x Review

  • 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. De diverse cameratesten lieten vrijwel altijd een positieve conclusie zien, zo ook bij onze DIWA collega's die vrijwel unaniem de D40 beloonde met een DIWA Gold Award.

Nikon D40x Review

  • Conclusion: Reflex numérique Nikon D40x Le Nikon D40x a surprise tout le monde à sa sortie. Tout d'abord, il paru très étrange de sortir un boîtier si proche du D40. Ensuite parce que la principale différence entre les deux était la résolution, chose jugées non importante par Nikon quelques semaine auparavant. Si l'appareil nous a surpris, il fut aussi un coup dur pour la concurrence car il en offre vraiment beaucoup pour son tarif.

Nikon D40x Review

Let's go digital
19 August 2007
  • Conclusion: Nikon D40x digitale reflex camera Met de Nikon D40x verrast Nikon ons op heel wat vlakken. Allereerst door een vrijwel identiek model naast de D40 te zetten. Slechts op een paar summiere punten wijkt de Nikon D40x af en het meest in het oog springend is datgene wat volgens Nikon helemaal niet meer zo belangrijk was: het aantal pixels is toegenomen. Mag het voor de consument en voor ons wellicht wat verwarrend zijn, voor de concurrent is het vooral even slikken.
