Great camera

Mata, Amazon
22 February 2014
  • Summary: This has been a great camera but I simply wore it out. At gatherings with many cameras in use… my pix from this camera were ALWAYS the best pix not only in composition but in clarity and definition. Think it is out of production now, however..

A gem for taking ebay photos! A good value!

desertreader4, Ebay
4 September 2012
  • Summary: First of all, Olympus is my favorite camera because it works for me. I like the "autofocus' because I don't like to be making constant adjustments. When I use the camera to take photos of my ebay sales products, I can then pick up the camera, take it outdoors for a fast pic, and I don't have to make any adjustments. What is a bit annoying is the "zoom" lens because then I have to wait while it opens.

Amazing camera for its time; still a good buy for a low-end camera

Alexander C. Zorach "Alex Zorach", Amazon
14 October 2006
  • Summary: This was my first digital camera; it is a quite out-of-date model but it was among the top of the line when it was made, and in some categories it still holds its own against modern, much pricier models. The biggest strength of this camera is that it takes excellent photos. The automatic setting works pretty well. It supports ISO-400 and has less noise than many newer cameras. It also takes decent flash photos. And it does have modest optical zoom.

it's been 3 years and i still love my D-40Z

schuss, Amazon
27 March 2005
  • Summary: check my pics in the customer shared gallery for some examples. ;) i bought this camera for the 4MP, the compact size, the sliding cover to protect the lens, the relatively cheap memory format (smartmedia), the AA batteries, and the combination of automatic modes and manual adjustments. 3 years later it continues to deliver for me in all these areas and more. i spent a month in europe last winter and took 150-200 pix a day with it.

Don't Know Why Olympus Stopped Making It

Confederate, Amazon
18 August 2004
  • Summary: When this camera first came out, I could only afford to look at them on the dealer's shelves. Small, lots of features and reviews praising the image quality up the gazoo, AA batteries (no scarce proprietary). But the price was anything but affordable. Now that they can be had on eBay, Amazon and other places refurbished or in mint condition, the D-40 is still one of the most desired cameras around.

  • Summary: It really depends on what you are looking for in a camera, but if compact size, price, style, and 4-5 Megapixels are your requisites, then the Olympus D-40 is it.
  • Pros: Compact and Slick, 4-5 Megapixels, Price, Various Photo settings
  • Cons: SmartMedia limited, Battery life could be better, tinted photos, too many options?
