  • Excerpt: In this day and age you need video capabilities and that is where this dslr fails. I would recommend this camera for someone beginning digital photography. Now I have used both Nikon and Canon and I would say that the canon version that parallels this camera navigate better and easier to use. This dslr has a technological appeal to it. Full capabilities as far as ISO lighting and exposure settings. Everyone knows its what sore of lens you use that ultimately matters.

Shame on Nikon Too

Richard Stromberg "Photo Buddha", Amazon
29 September 2007
  • Summary: I have owned, and still own Nikon equipment since 1965. I have taught Photography for 38 years, I get to see every camera on the market through my adult students (post college). I recommend Nikon cameras most often, BUT NOT THIS ONE, this camera only focuses with lenses that have a motor within the lens. That renders all "D" series lenses obsolete for auto focusing with this camera model.

  • Summary: Just repacked it. Looks good, just. User manual is in French, the waranty from Neitherlands (but i hope it works in world wide).

Great entry-level DSLR, but crippled by lack of exposure bracketing

M. Merwe, Amazon

  • Summary: The Nikon D40X is probably among the best value-for-money cameras around. The ergonomics of this camera are simply unbeatable by almost any camera at any price. Just watch out for one thing, though. With High Dynamic Range (HDR) imaging becoming more and more popular, and the software to do it becoming cheaper and more widely available, it's perhaps surprising that Nikon have chosen to cripple the D40X by segmenting their products in such a way that you must spend double...

  • Summary: I bought mine in June 07. Pros Great quality pictures, fantastic battery life (I took it on holiday and took over 230 photos (+ rejects) and still had life in the battery on my return, that included the kids daily review of the days photos), controls are reasonably simple to use if you read the instruction book, nice clear LCD screen, light & compact, build quality felt & looked good.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Единственный (и то сомнительный) плюс этой камеры-это компактность. Купил как первую собственную зеркалку под влиянием рекламы, особо не разбираясь во всём этом. Пожалел через неделю. D40x - чисто маркетинговый ход уважаемой мною компании Nikon, расчитанный на людей, ни разу не державших в своих руках хоть сколько-нибудь приличную зеркалку. Сейчас я не вижу ни одного аргумента за покупку D40x.
  • Pros: Компактность
  • Cons: Дорогой (явно переоценён), отсутствие моторчика, отсутствие дополнительного дисплея

  • Excerpt: Bonjour, Certains posts affirment que le D40 x est un appreil de qualité professionnelle. Il ne faut pas exagérer. C'est un très bon appareil pour débutant, mais depuis Nikon a fait nettement mieux dans cette gamme de tarifs

Ambivalentes Gefühl

Schmiding, Amazon

  • Summary: Die Bildqualität und Verabeitung der Kamera sind gut bis sehr gut. ABER, es bleiben doch etliche Mängel: Die Objektivauswahl ist sehr bescheiden, da nur Linsen mit eingebautem Autofokusmotor verwendet werden können. Die sind knapp und oft um einiges teurer. Festbrennweiten (etwa ein günstiges 50mm-Objektiv) gibt es für diese Kamera noch gar nicht; nur das teure, neue 60mm-Makro.

Podiais decirme como se hace un test para ver eso de los pixeles? lo digo por el compañero que dice que vio alguno de su camara fundidos... gracias.

  • Summary: Tras una laaaarga valoración elegí como cámara para mis necesidades, teniendo en cuenta varios factores, la Nikon D40x. Toda mi vida fui de Nikon, hasta hace tres años y medio en que me pase a Canon, y estoy plenamente satisfecho, pero me hacía ilusión volver a Nikon. Así que me fui a por mi Nikon D40x y...
