Nikon D40 Review

Digitaltrends
17 January 2008
  • Conclusion: The Nikon D40 is a good camera for the money. Photo quality is better than acceptable, in fact, it’s downright fine, especially the 8.5×11 prints I turned out. It’s clearly targeted for first-timer D-SLR buyers who do not have any legacy lenses.

  • Conclusion: Nikon D40 digital reflex camera The competition at the lower end of the DSLR market is killing. There are a lot of players and everyone is trying to be the market leader, or at least to steal a share of the market from their competitors.

Nikon D40 with AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 G II ED

Camera Labs
1 March 2007
  • Summary: The Nikon D40 is arguably one of the most sensible DSLRs released so far. Nikon’s sensibly targeted first-time DSLR owners with an affordable and easy to use product, and sensibly fitted it with a 6 Megapixel sensor which is more than sufficient for the vast majority of consumers.
  • 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: Has 'only' 6 Mpixels, but it's enough for most., No auto-focus with certain, older lenses., Some settings require too many button presses., Basic 3-point AF and no DOF preview.

  • Summary: The Nikon D40 DSLR is an affordable Family DSLR that gives excellent image quality and provides an easy step up from point-and-shoot (P&S) digital cameras.

  • Summary: The D40 is a worthy upgrade from the Nikon D50. Although it has a lower number (probably because Canon's closest competitor is the EOS 400D), it is a definite improvement and makes an excellent entry-level model. It can even be carried in a large pocket
  • Pros: Fast start-up; simple menu; graphic interface; light weight.
  • Cons: Older lenses not supported; no top LCD panel; plastic lens.

  • Summary: Despite a 6-megapixel sensor, there's nothing wrong with the D40's picture, which come so close to the quality provided by 10-megapixel SLRs that it could be hard to spot the difference. But while the new control interface looks great, it's rather sluggish and fiddly to use.
