Nikon D40X:

Strengths: Fast operation, good menus, compatible with all Nikon F lenses, lightweight.

Weakness: Limited choice of AF lenses.

I bought a factory-refurbished body for $275 from Adorama and picked up the 18 - 105 VR lens at the Pasadena CA Bargain Camera Show for $185. This is a terrific system for under 500 bucks! Before I got the lens, I started shooting with some of my manual-focus Nikon lenses - compatibility was a big reason for choosing this model. Manual focusing is facilitated by a focus indicating light in the...

Crime Scene

Strengths: Nikon,Lense Quality,Instant On,Lighter weight,Flash Distance, Focus Time,Double Exposure, Color reproduction, SD Card storage with capable with newer high capacity chipset. Excellent Burst of 100+ pic

Weakness: Current lense options not marketed to consumers effectively. Dedicated battery. Needs to be Lithium AA's instead. You get 450-500 shots with flash.

Get It,Charge It Up,Shoot It. Don't Like It email me. We (Family) use it with the Epson Stylus 1400 printer that prints a 19*13 photo and needed (mostly wanted) a new camera for the printer. Looked at Canon (was Canon fan) Loved their film cameras! Have Sony merchandise; playstation,TV,camcorder,dvd recorder which is slow as ice melting when formatiing discs. I can be considered extremely picky;...

You hardly find a better camera, even regarding the price

Strengths: What do you want to hear? It's a NIKON. Just point and click and shoot worldchampion fotos. There are not many companies that give you this certain touch of quality ...

Weakness: If you know what you want, then none. You cannot make videos, because there is the unavoidable mirror ;-)

To make a long story short:
I was looking for a ver, very, very long time for a good camera at a 'reasonable' price, comparing, testing ...
I got this one now and the only thing besides shooting fotos is smile.

D40x SLR

Strengths: Clear picture and easy to use

Weakness: charger only for US. I purchased it as a gift to a friend in China, he has to buy a voltage converter

My friend likes the D40x very much, but wish it is with 18-200 mm lens instead. Overall the camera is very good SLR if it's the first SLR. My next purchase would be Nikon D80 with 18-200 mm lens.

I returned Canon DigitalRebel XTi and bought Nikon D40x - this is a keeper!

Strengths: Instant start-up. Very fast auto focus. Rapid continuous shooting (great to capture kids in action). Nikon 18-55mm kit lens better than Canon's kit lens. Supports USB mass storage interface.

Weakness: Only 3 auto-focus points. Auto white balance poor for indoor shooting (need to remember to switch to "incadescent" manually). No hard buttons for white balance and/or ISO selection.

I initially bought a Canon Digital Rebel XTi kit. After using it for 2 weeks, the deficiency of Canon's kit lenses and the very poor design of the USB interface on the Digital Rebel started to really annoy me. So I returned Canon and bought a Nikon D40x. What a difference! Before buying the Nikon I thought that Canon was a higher end product. Now I feel totally the opposite. I really like the...
