Excellent entry-level digital SLR

AdvantagesGreat quality and value for money, feature-rich, the good old dependable Nikon name

DisadvantagesNone really, unless you need more megapixels and more features for pro use

"...the entry level D range Nikon at 6.1 megapixels, it is an absolutely brilliant piece of kit (as you would expect from Nikon) for the money and produces impressively high quality photos. I’ve been an avid photographer for many years, and my trusty ancient Minolta SRT-101 SLR served me extremely well for more than two decades until I decided to try digital. At first I bought a Nikon Coolpix a few years ago, as prices for digital cameras were a lot ..." Read review

An entry level DSLR that packs a punch!

AdvantagesSuperb image quality, easy to use, great value for money, suitable for beginner to pro

DisadvantagesIv not found any

"...questions you may have. But Nikon also have a website dedicated to the D40 and talks you through all the settings and how to get the most from your camera by the well designed video on their website. I am currently studying photography at college and the college teaches us using these cameras and so thats why I decided to by one myself because I really liked them. I am now in my second year and have used the camera both in my first and second year ..." Read review

I loved it, you might as well like Nikon D40 Review with images

AdvantagesExcellent pictures, handy

DisadvantagesRead the review

"...of m friends suggested me Nikon D40 and I trusted him and got it. It did quite a bit of harm to my wallet but it was worth it. ====== Before writing any thing I must say that Nikon D40 is extremely cute and pretty. I don’t think the pros will be at all dissatisfied with it since Nikon D40 shoots such good pictures in the hands a of a rookie like me, wonder what a pro can do with it. It is very user friendly and the friendliest part for novice like ..." Read review

Nikon D40 is the DSLR you'll ever need

AdvantagesExcellent image quality, good core functionality of an DSLR, cheap, portable and lightweight.

DisadvantagesMegapixels may not be sufficient for some, no autobracketing and no autofocus with non-AFS lenses

"Although introduced many years ago, Nikon D40 is still my favorite DSLR due to its compact size and affordable price tag. It is the best entry level DSLR in the market, at a price much cheaper than the more expensive compacts and semi-pro. Nikon D40 is a fast 6MP camera with a large 3-inch LCD, 2.5fps continuous shooting, 1/500s flash sync and a bright viewfinder. What it lacks are a status display and a built-in auto-focus motor. Megapixel count ..." Read review

Second foray into DSLR territory, its tiny!

AdvantagesLightweight, compact, cheap and simple DSLR ideal for beginners

DisadvantagesExpensive lenses and a little too compact for me.

"...lens off the Fuji (Both Nikon F mounts). It worked, and is happily still working now. I have since bought a 18-55mm AF-S lens for the camera, and I am impressed, both the D40 and the S2 are 6Mp cameras (although the Fuji Super CCD operates differently) they both produce clean, sharp bright images on 'auto' and operate well under most conditions. The main difference between them is the weight, the Fuji is physically much bigger and weight a lot ..." Read review
