Updated review for 2014

Selcuk Onat, Amazon
9 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera in 2007. I have had the shutter refurbished by Nikon once around 30k shots I think. WHile this camera has only three focus points, and can hunt like a madman in an action situation, and it not weather-proofed, otherwise I have to say it's been quite the trooper, and what worries me is that NIkon has still not made it's replacement. First off, I love the profile and size of this camera.

The Nikon 40x is a great starter DSLR

Norma Lee "nllatplay", Amazon

  • Summary: Wish this camera was still available--it's so easy to use and small for a DSLR. You'll get much better photos than with a point and shoot and the kit lens (Nikkor 18-55mm) is so small and light that it's easy to bring it anywhere you go. I didn't need the lens, but I saw the 40x available with a lens. This is a true DSLR--no video capabilities.

Good basic SLR

Bill M., Amazon

  • Summary: This was my first SLR (never had a film one) so I don't have much of a reference point. Other reviewers complain of the small size, but I actually wanted that; it's small enough that you can carry it around for the day without too much bother. The included kit lens is pretty decent, I was too slow in getting a clear filter put on though and got the end of the lens sandblasted on a beach in Florida. Get that filter on!

Great Nikon Quality

  • Excerpt: Nikon has had a legendary reputation with cameras from film to current day digital SLRs. The power on time is short and allows you to start taking pictures quickly. This model captures pictures at a maximum of 10.2 Megapixls on a CCD sensor. Many might think this is low compared to the high mega pixels available in even the most inexpensive point and shoot today, but high megapixels does not necessarily equal better image quality.

Nikon D40x is a great starter DSLR

  • Excerpt: I have to say I've been a Nikon fan since I inherited my dad's Nikon F1, a film 35 mm camera.  I wanted a dslr and bought a Canon, since I did not see any affordable Nikons.  The Nikon was great, but a short time later, I got the chance to return it, so I returned it and bought a Nikon D40x.  It was a kit with two lenses and a case.  The two lenses are okay; one is an 18-55mm, the other a 55-200 lens.  Both lenses are great for a starter dlsr.

Catches all the perfect moments!

  • Excerpt: My husband and I used our credit card points towards the Nikon D40x several years ago and it was by far the best thing we could have used our points towards.  We now have 2 children and each time I pull out my point and shoot camera, I am sorely disappointed in the quality.  My Nikon takes flawless pictures every time (as long as I am operating it correctly :) ) and everyone always has positive things to say about my pictures.  The clarity is unmatched.

Amazing Starter Camera

divellent, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: This camera is by far the most amazing starter camera I could've ever hoped for. It has all the bells and whistles of it's more expensive older siblings, but a fraction of the price. This camera really allows you to improve your photography and learn about DSLRs without bankrupting you. The only downside (and the reason for the four stars) is that it won't auto-focus with standard Nikkor lenses (they'll fit, but you have to manually focus them).

Good value for just over $300 bucks

  • Summary: Camera takes great pictures, should have done my homework because the screen only allows you to view pictures after you take the picture not during, kinda annoying to me because my other camera has that feature and its nice to have, looking through the view finder to take pictures seems old school.
