The compact Nikon D40x is designed to deliver the picture-taking benefits of a digital SLR, yet is easy and fun to use. The D40x is ready to shoot when you are, thanks to split-second instant shutter response, which eliminates annoying shutter lag.
Exceptional image quality is made possible by a high resolution, 10.2-effective megapixel CCD image sensor and Nikon's exclusive image processing engine. With a 10.2-megapixel resolution, the D40x invites creative picture cropping freedom without loss of picture quality and delivers the ability to make enlargements of extraordinary size.
Additional features include built-in flash with innovative Nikon i-TTL control, In-Camera Editing features with Nikon D-Lighting, Red-Eye Correction, Image Trimming, Image Overlay, Filter Effects and more. An ingenious HELP Menu with "Assist Images" helps you select the appropriate settings for many camera features.

This camera was a perfect step up from the point and shoot cameras I had been using. Previously a loyal Canon user, I took the jump to Nikon with this DSLR and I haven't been disappointed. The controls are easy to use, and the camera grip is very comfortable. The camera is the perfect size & weight for a petite woman such as myself. Only drawback is the limited selection of lenses that take full advantage of the cameras capabilities.
I love my new camera. It is everything I wanted. I am just getting started with portrait photography and am enjoying practicing on my kids. I have been totally satisfied with all of my picture so far even the sports ones of volleyball.
