D-40 Zoom ($699) is a very small 4 Megapixel camera that doesn't
skimp on features. In many ways, it works just like the Olympus
our review), minus the support for external flashes and lenses.
Unlike the C-4040Z, this one will easily fit in your pocket, making
it a true "go anywhere" camera.
Pros: Ultra-small body, Tons of manual controls, Very good photo quality, Movie mode w/sound, Pixel Mapping removes bad pixels, Noise reduction for better low light shots
Cons: No optical zoom in movie mode, Jagged edges on many images, No rechargeable batteries, tiny 16MB SmartMedia card included, "Real" manual found on CD (and isn't great to begin with)
