D40X Nikon Reviews

DPExpert has a review of the D40X by Nikon and writes, “The essential functions are generally good: fast and accurate auto-focus (but only with lenses that have an inbuilt focus motor); perfect exposure and wide dynamic range. The auto white balance leaves something to be desired and there is no dedicated white balance button on the camera body but the Function button can be programmed for white balance. The D40X feels as fast and responsive as the more expensive Nikons. Even the viewfinder, which uses mirrors rather than a prism, is large and bright. The LCD review screen is brilliant but it doesn’t come with Nikon’s customary clear plastic protector. The D40X shares its image processor with the D80 and D200. Image quality is excellent.”

EPhotoZine has a review of the D40x by Nikon and writes, “While the D40x lacks some of the more sophisticated options of bigger cameras, it’s certainly well specified in the budget market and readily capable of taking on the Canon EOS 400D. … While the shooting speed of the camera is a long way off the marketing claims, with just modest performance, it’s the ease of use of the camera and the results that count the most in this marketplace. On that score, the D40x is easy to pick up and start shooting with because the more advanced functions are kept out of the way initially, and the results, while lacking a great deal of sharpness thanks to the kit lens, are generally pleasing.”

Let’s Go Digital has a review of the D40x by Nikon and writes, “The Nikon D40x is a very fine and smart DSLR camera that offers a lot of quality for a low price. The D40 camera was welcomed enthusiastically and quickly left its competition behind. The different camera reviews almost always showed a positive conclusion, also with our DIWA colleagues, who awarded the D40 with a DIWA Gold Award nearly unanimously. Because the Nikon D40x is identical to the D40, I expect again a big success for this model. Once more, Nikon shows what its good at. The production of a serious SLR camera with an excellent image quality, but not forgetting what it’s all about: hassle free and pleasant photographing for everyone. For these reasons, the Nikon D40x is absolutely highly recommended!”

SMH.com has a review of the D40X from Nikon and writes, “The essential functions are generally good: fast and accurate auto-focus (but only with lenses that have an inbuilt focus motor), perfect exposure and wide dynamic range. The auto white balance leaves something to be desired and there is no dedicated white balance button on the camera body but the Function button can be programmed for white balance. This model feels as fast and responsive as the more expensive Nikons. … Are those extra pixels worth the $400? Six million pixels will produce A3 prints; 10 million give room for cropping without loss of resolution. Compared to the competition this model offers a lot for the money.”
