Well picture quality is good but I do have some problems Problems: Multiple frames, as soon as you take over 5-10 it seem sit slows down when you move after the target. Maybe change of ISO would help but still not 3fps Lens motor - me not knowing anything but SLRs when I got my first being D40X did not know anything about what that really meant so I go the Joan Collins special. Of course with the lens motor comes the issue with availablility of lenses. Poor I think, seems third party is not ...

I bought this camera 2 months ago because of its small size and weight. I’m impressed by its image quality. Excellent camera for those who will stick with kit lenses. Before I bought the camera I thought I'd also stick with the kit lenses(18-55,55-200VR) but now I'm missing fast lenses. For indoor shooting or shallow DOF (blurry background) fast lenses are very important. But AF-S fast lenses are very expensive and there is no AF-S prime from Nikon. For moving objects, focusing with only 3 ...

I've owned this camera for 2 months. I just came back from China and Tibet (easily one of the most photogenic cultures on the planet!), with about 9,000 images. The D40x performed flawlessly, and looks like it's still brand new. Excellent build quality, good set of features (but missing exposure bracketing), fast, satisfying shutter. Using the Nikkor 18-200 zoom is a joy: I never have to switch lenses (eliminates dust problems). This is my first DSLR, and I chose it over the Canon Xti due to ...

do to health and advancing years I sold my D200 which I loved and bought the D40x. I am delighted with this camera which is only half the weight and gives almost the same quality images, I use it with the 18-70 3.5-4'5ed dx lens which is far superiour to the 18-55 and worth the extra cost. basicly cant fault the camera Problems: none

Amazing IQ and ease of use. Kit lens is sharp from F5.6 to F11. Good colours and saturation. Fast download speed. Most day shots require -.3 to -.7 for perfect exposure though. Very useable ISO400 and ISO800, hence slow lenses not much of a problem. Basically i am a MF fetish, so i use the excellent 50mm 1.8D a lot to good effect. Problems: So far none. My only disapointment is Nikon does not incl their Capture NX raw convertor with this cam.

Hi, I had bought the Nikon D40X camera and have taken some very good pictures. However, I have not been happy with taking pictures in relatively low light areas. Overall, the image quality is quite impressive. Problems: I must say the 18-55mm lens has to be upgraded. Secondly, the photographs taken in dark places does have enough light with the inbuilt flash. I seriously recommend buying a separate flash and a separate lens too. I would recommend the 18-200mm nikor lens or the 55-200mm ...

I'm making the transition from a totally manual 35mm Leica SLR to this, and primarily having issues with dealing with autofocus and controlling the depth-of-field. I assume it will just take some practice -- I'm impressed with the transparency of the control buttons, and like the way it fits in my hands, even with the rubber CameraArmor. The reviews that complain about the Raw format are obviously not using a Mac: iPhoto reads this format perfectly without any add-in. Problems: I am annoyed ...

I used my D40x for around a month, and it took very good pictures. Better initial quality than my Canon Xti, but as I said in my review of that one--once adjusting the canon the pics were equally beautiful. I got rid of the D40x because I was hamstrung by two major issues: First, Nikon does NOT give a RAW converter with the camera--you have to fork over an extra few hundred to get that (and they don't tell you this--the packaging advertises that it comes with software--just not RAW ...

Superbly easy to use - I had to hit the deck running with this camera with only one day to play before doing product photography. I managed easily. I found that when out of the auto modes this camera put me back to photographing like I used to with 35mm film - it puts you in control, whether for good or bad. This is a real camera - which means no lens cap on a thread! The kit lens is okay but it is seriously worth upgrading to something better. Looong battery life - I shot for nine hours and ...

Es una muy buena camara, la verdad vale la pena como no tienen una idea. Es una camara que tienes un gran soporte de lentes nikon, de hecho casi todas las lentes de nikon le quedan, claro solo las AF-S enfocan automaticamente pero eso es lo de menos. Para mi sinceramente fue una muy buena compra, y hasta el momento estoy contento. Compre tambien la lente Nikkor 50mm F/1.8D AF y es algo que la verdad todo mundo deberia tener. Muy buena calidad de imagen y cobre todo los colores son muy buenos, ...
