Hi, I just recently purchased a used Nikon D40x with Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105/3.5-5.6 G ED VR for $306NZD off Trade Me. It is in good condition with a shutter count of 7484. I was just wondering whether I overpaid for this camera.  Thanks

Hi! I am trying to find out what the problem is with my husbands camera. He has a Nikon D40x. Years ago he accidentally left the battery on charge too long and it melted the battery. He contacted Nikon and they sent him a new one! Shortly after that his camera stopped turning on. I've search the interwebs high and low and cannot find any info on what the problem can be. I'd rather not bring the camera in and spend half the cost of buying a new camera to just see whats wrong with it. To our...

Hi there. I have a Nikon D40x with the 18-55mm kit lens, and would like to know (before heading of out to take photo's) what settings I should use, to take photo's of Christmas light decorations on houses in my area? I do understand that a tripod would be a big advantage in taking such photo's, but unfortunately I am wheelchair bound, and would want (if possible) to take photo's from sitting in my car. Any help/suggestions would ne greatly appreciated.

Like most gearhead communities, we tend to concentrate on the newest/biggest/most expensive. But most people don't have the disposable income to buy an A7RII or 5D IV etc with top of the line lenses. We (even us working pros) use what we can afford and what works reliably. A friend's recent misfortune got me thinking about this. She's a talented semi-pro photographer but without much money and her old Nikon D40x just died, so she needed a new camera. Now, many of you will scoff because she...

Here's a list of my equipment that I use for regular photography: Nikon D40x, Nikon D90, Nikon D300s, Nikon 18-55 VR, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 70-200 f/2.8, Canon G7X Mk ll, GoPro Hero 4 Silver. 1) Where is the Milky Way in the sky of southwest Iowa about 9 pm ? 2) If using one of my DSLRs which lens would be best for first tries at night photos or a night lapse of the Milky Way ? 3) The G7X Mk ll has a night lapse video feature that I have used once. It works well but is limited to about 10-15...

Is it possible to use my D40x for night lapse photography ?   I would need an external timer/intervalometer for taking a series of photos that I could put together in iMovie. Thank you for any insight and links.

This is the equipment I currently own. 1) old D40X and 2) slightly less old D5100. My current lenses are 1) Nikon 18-55 mm kit lens, 2) Nikon 55-200 mm telephoto, and 3) Tokina 12-28 f/4 super wide. I'm not an accomplished photographer. I mostly take photos of events I'm at, or places I'm visiting while on vacation, or RV trips. I want good quality pictures for viewing when I get home and to show family and friends. I never expect to sell any nor to enter any photo contests. All that said, I...

Ok..doing my research. I can get a AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor ED 55-200mm F4-5.6G lens at a pretty low price (hopefully) and I'm trying to find the cheapest body I can get that it will work with. Since this is a DX lens, I'm thinking probably the D40? Or the D40x? I'm just an "excitable snapshooter" anymore, not looking to print, sell or portfolio anything. Thanks bunches....I've never owned a Nikon before (except an L5), maybe that can change! ~Wes --Photographs, 'he asked him knowingly'

My Nikon D40x is working fine (it's taking pictures); but I can't preview the pictures in the monitor. I can playback the pictures back after I take them, but I used to be able to see the view/scene in the LCD monitor prior to taking the shot. I have read the manual, as I suspect that when I loaned my camera, something may have been accidentally turned off. I am not referring to Live view which is not a feature of the d40x. I was able to take a quick look at the LCD monitor and then use the...
