Nikon D40 review


If you're looking to buy your first DSLR then your search is over - the Nikon D40 is it. Whether upgrading from a compact or jumping in at the deep end the Nikon D40 has everything you need, delivers cracking pictures and it's brilliantly easy to use. Better still the D40 delivers point-and-shoot simplicity when you want it and advanced, manual settings to grow into, so this isn't a camera you're going to need to replace in any hurry. In fact, you probably wouldn't want to. For those looking for a budget bargain of a DSLR: the Nikon D40 really is it.
