Nikon D40x review


The newcomer may have 4 million pixels more, but this isn’t enough to make it a ‘better’ camera; what it gains in resolution it loses in picture quality, which only serves to balance the tally sheet. It ultimately seems that the D40x is trying to be ‘forced’ into a gap in the market that doesn’t currently exist. While it is by no means a bad camera I’d still say that if you want a straightforward entry-level DSLR save yourself a few quid and get a D40. On the other hand, if you want a 10MP sensor, save up a bit more money beforehand and go for the D80 – the overall improvements justify the additional cost.
