Nikon D40X Camera Reviews

The Age has a review of the Nikon D40X camera 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.”

Trusted Reviews has a review of the Nikon D40x camera and writes, “Of course the key criterion for a digital SLR is image quality, and here the D40x really shines. The 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II lens is significantly better than the lens supplied with the EOS 400D, and combined with the improved image processing of the D40x it provides a fantastic level of fine detail, superb contrast and flawless colour reproduction. … In the D40x Nikon may finally have got the entry-level DSLR that can give Canon a run for its money while holding off Sony’s advance. It is, by an admittedly narrow margin, a better camera than the EOS 400D in many respects, including the crucial area of overall image quality. It is easy to use, has Nikon’s traditional fantastic build quality, and performs superbly well. If you’re looking for an SLR for under £500 the D40x should be near the top of your list.”

Wired Blogs has a review of the Nikon D40x camera and writes, “This 10.2-megapixel model has one of the smartest automatic modes we’ve seen, including accurate measurement of often trouble-prone areas such as ISO setting and white balance. Image quality is top-notch, with great detail and minimal noise even at high ISO settings.”

Thom Hogan has a review of the Nikon D40x camera and writes, “the D40x does a bit better than the D80 in the noise department, apparently due to slightly more aggressive noise reduction, as the level of detail is slightly lower at ISO 1600 on the D40x than it is on the D80. But again, ISO 100 to 1600 produced very usable images. … The D40x retains all the things that are likeable about the D40 and gives you a 10mp sensor that produces images that are arguably slightly better than the D80 can produce (at least for JPEG files). You pay for that extra resolution two ways: extra dollars up front and reduced flash flexibility due to the all-mechanical shutter. I don’t expect to use my D80 much any more with the D40x being smaller and lighter. But someone with older AF lenses or who needs one of the D80’s additional features might choose differently.”
