  • Conclusion: The D40 is perhaps one of Nikon's most important digital SLRs. It's certainly their smallest and lightest, their most affordable and ships with a fairly decent kit lens too. But noteworthy is the fact that it's their first digital SLR not to provide Auto Focus to their large range of lenses which do not have built-in AF motors.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, great resolution and detail, who needs eight megapixels?, 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 (only 3 areas but that's not a big issue for this camera), Auto-focus assist lamp rather th...
  • 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...

  • Excerpt: The Nikon D40 DSLR owes more to the entry enthusiast-level D80 than the entry-level D50 it succeeds. Our Nikon D40 review tests it out...

  • 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 is rejoining the fray with their newest weapon, the Nikon D40. It's one powerful weapon. It's not just a pared down D80, as you could reasonably expect. Of course the D40 looks like the D80, minus some settings.

  • Summary: The D40 SLR digicam picks up where the D50 left off, and on paper, little seems to have changed. But the specifications don't tell you just how much things have evolved.

  • Summary: The Nikon D40 is an attempt to make DSLR photography accessible to more people than ever before, making it one of the most important models in the company's history. Crucially Nikon haven't simply concentrated on reducing the price by reducing the features. Cost is obviously a key factor in this market, but accessibility also plays a large part, and Nikon have achieved both of these aims.

  • Summary: A DSLR camera for everyday photographers with a selectable graphic interface that shows users the effect of changing key camera controls. The D40 is Nikon's smallest and lightest DSLR camera yet - and also the easiest to operate. Designed for everyday photographers, it replaces the D50 model and features the same 6.1-megapixel imager but sports a larger 2.5-inch high-resolution colour LCD monitor.

Nikon D40 Review

  • Conclusion: Normaliter ben ik niet zo heel erg onder de indruk van instapmodellen. Het testen van de Nikon D40 DSLR bleek echter zeer aangenaam. Zelden ben ik zo enthousiast over een camera geweest. Het is een mooie camera om te zien, heerlijk compact en toch stevig. Maar bovenal is het een geweldig prettige camera in de bediening, die voortreffelijke beelden oplevert. Er is veel mogelijk wat betreft instellingen, zonder dat het je gaat duizelen.
