NikonNikon D40x review : At the introduction of the D40, Nikon did not speak expressively about the subject pixels, for the D40 ‘only' had six million, which seems rather sufficient to me for most applications. It is for this reason surprising that, rather rapidly after the introduction of the D40, Nikon presented the D40x with as the most important change the image sensor. The amount of pixels has grown to ten million, just like with the D80. The Nikon D40x is, however, not the D40's successor, but stands beside it as its big brother. The Nikon D40 recently received the international DIWA Gold Award, and because the D40x resembles the winning model strongly, the camera makes a very promising start.

Nikon D40x digital SLR - ISO sensitivity
With the upgrade of the image sensor - from 6 to 10 million pixels - also the sensitivity of the sensor has been adapted. This runs now from ISO 100 to up to ISO 3200, the latter is indicated by Hi-1. The lower ISO is a welcome supplement, but in fact also not completely necessary. The ISO 200 quality is already sticking out, but for those who work with studio lighting or in bright sunlight for instance, ISO 100 is essential. Moreover it is now possible for the purists, who strive for the lowest ISO, to choose for this option.

Nikon D40x - Continuous shooting mode
The Nikon D40x has a near instant power-up and a continuous shooting mode which allows the keen photographer to capture 100 jpeg images at three frames per second. The integrated auto focus ensures that shots are crisp and clear and Nikon’s innovative i-TTL flash control evaluates ideal flash exposure to ensure the image light is always correct, whatever the conditions.

Nikon D40x lenses - Focus engine
In addition to the good properties, the Nikon also brought along a few limitations, like the use of the lenses. On the Nikon D40x digital SLR camera, the automatic focus only works when using lenses with a built-in focus engine, for the focus engine in the camera is missing. This is a matter of cost reduction. On account of Nikon's ample selection, this limitation will not be a problem unless you have much older Nikon lenses, but this group of users is not expected to be very large.

Nikon D40x SLR camera review
In regards to the earlier experiences with the D40 and Nikon's promise of improvements, we have high expectations for the Nikon D40x. We received the Nikon D40x, together with the new 55-200mm f/4-5.6 AF-S VR DX Zoom-Nikkor lens, to our disposition during a longer period for a review. Our findings can be read in the following Nikon D40x review.
