Excerpt: I bought a Nikon camera and one of the lens didnt work correctly so I sent it to their repair office in Mellville, NY and the customer service is alwful. They lost my lens and said I sent them a stolen lens will not produce a police record. Will not return phone calls, emails or nothing will not even admit that they received my lens when I have a copy from the post office saying they did. Never buy a Nikon product they break and the company doesn't stand up to their...
Excerpt: I tried out my new Nikon D40 DSLR with the 18-55 G ED II lens. The camera overexposes the pictures taken with or without the flash on. Photos are can be displayed differently on different monitors. On my home monitors, which are old 17" CRT's, the pictures look fine because the monitor doesn't have enought brightness and contrast. On my work monitor, the pictures looked "washed out" no matter how I adjust the monitor. My work monitor displayes photos taken from my...
Summary: This is one of the most worthless cameras Nikon has ever made. It has only 3 focus points, it has no in-body focus motor, and the image sensor is the same one in the D50 and D70/s, which are far superior cameras with 5 focus points and in-body focus motor. Do not buy this worthless piece of junk, or the D60, which is virtually a D40/x.
Cons: You cannot view the photo in the LCD screen while taking the picture. The quality of the photos is crap! Megapixels don't mean dick all if the quality of the photo at natural resolution is grainy. My cheap Fujipix took better pictures than this piece of j
Summary: OK, I knew I was only getting 6.1MP but that's all I could afford at the time. I really liked my Nikon D200 but it was stolen. The worst "feature" the D40 camera is that, by default, it over exposes the photo. This is the same problem that the old D70 had. With a few adjustments this can be corrected, yet its very dissapointing that after so many years since the D70 was released with that known problem, here is appears again in the much newer D40.
"Do not buy they Nikon D40 this camera sucks - it breaks"
31 July 2010
Pros: We stopped using it after it broke the third time. We could not justify spending more money to fix it. It is in our closet collecting dust and I think a spider has built a web on it. As far as Pros go, it makes a good spider web house.
Cons: It breaks. It is expensive to fix. They charge just enough to not justify buying a new one every time it breaks. They will not tell you how much to fix it until you send it in. Then they hold you hostage until you pay them. We did this twice.
Do not buy the Nikon D40 - it breaks right after the warranty expires
31 July 2010
Summary: Do not buy the Nikon d40. It breaks way too easy. Ours broke twice just after the warranty expired and then six months later and then a third time and we gave up. We send it in twice to get fixed. They would not tell us how much to fix it until we sent it in and then they held us hostage to pay them and we thought they were charging us way too much. They charged us just enough to not justify buying a new one each time.
Summary: I purchased this camera a year and a half ago and have had to send it back twice so far. IT seems to go out right before a special occasion so I have no pictures. I thought I was buying a good quality camera to record all the moments of my child growing up. The first time I had to send it to Nikon, the flash would not deploy, now it will not focus the majority of the time.
Summary: [...]I went ahead and ordered the D40 two lens kit from Ritz and all went smoothly. The camera arrived and I eagerly unpacked the box, charged the battery and attached the 18-55mm lens. First impressions were not very good. The camera is light, as are the lens, cheapishly so. The camera had a toyish feel and the 18-55mm lens felt grainy working the zoom in and out. Even so, I am quick to start shooting at everything in sight to test it out.
Cons: Loud, Slow Focus, Toy like feel, Very entry level DSLR
