Excerpt: The D40 is Nikon ’s budget offering for those wishing to start out in the world of DSLRs. It is a 6.1 megapixel camera with Nikon ’s DX sensor format. I’ve been using my D40 for about 2 months now, and I can seriously say that I could not have picked a better camera. Included is the Nikon AF-S 18-55mm DX 3.5-5.6 lens. It’s a great kit lens, with good overall sharpness and fast autofocus.
Excerpt: It is one of the digital SLR cameras from Nikon in the lower range, but the truth is that despite being low-end, for people who will start using digital SLR cameras, I think it’s more than enough. You can buy in different ways and with different kits, I was looking at all options and at the end I opted for one that will come with a dual lens kit.
Excerpt: Nikon has released its cheapest entry-level DSLR for $499. I have been in love with photography since I got my first camera so I was so happy I can have a DSLR I can afford. Here are the specification of the D40: 1. 6.1 megapixels sensor -let me tell you that this seemingly too small MP count is ample. Some cameras claim shooting at 12.1 MP but the REAL image quality is poor so don’t base your purchase on megapixel count only.
Summary: I thnk that this is an awesome first camera for anyone who is starting out in photography or it's just a hobby for them. It's easy to function. I just love this camera overall. Nikon Rules in my oppionion.
Excerpt: My husband got me the Nikon D40 for Christmas with an 18-135 mm lens! I love this camera. I had been looking at it for a while, and now that we have it we are starting a photography business. I only have one flash for it right now but it takes phenomenal photos and with photoshop to use as well, I get the pictures looking great!
LOVE this camers! Have not had photos done in 2 years

Excerpt: D40 has been worth every penny. Often the photo lab does not believe that they are not from a pro! I am able to capture so many shot that my point and shot was not able to. I hope to add more lens to the camera to get more shots and will hopefully be able to take a class to get even better photos. But as little as I do know, I am amazed at how easy it is to use and the great photos we get. Awesome, awesome camera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excerpt: I love my camera! I bought this Christmas of 2007 and I am still learning lots. The pictures are so crisp compared to a point and shoot. The only problem I have with this camera is that it does not have an auto focus motor in the camera so if you want a lens that doesn't have autofocus you are stuck with manual focus. That being said it shouldn't deter people from buying it.
Excerpt: Nikon SLR's are the best ones to by hands down. Their technology is so advance and easy to use. This camera is almost the equivelant to the D90 but it has a lighter design. It's software is perfect and easy to understand.
Excerpt: The Nikon D 40X is a great camera for the price and the features! Even if you're not an expert with an SLR, this camera allows beautiful shots in the automatic mode. Once you become familiar with the camera, you will be able to experiment with all the other shooting modes it has to offer. It is compatible with other Nikon lenses, but for starting out, the basic 18-55mm lens is just fine.
