Nikon D40x Highlights

Extraordinary Nikon image quality The D40x's high-resolution image quality is made possible by Nikon's high-performance 10.2-megapixel Nikon DX-Format CCD imaging sensor and exclusive Nikon image-processing engine, assuring stunning sharpness and color.

Nikon's smallest Digital SLR ever Beautifully styled, the D40x makes high-performance digital SLR photography easier and more convenient than ever.You'll be amazed at the power packed into a camera that weighs just over 16 ounces.

High-Performance 10.2-megapixel Nikon DX Format CCD imaging sensor Nikon’s DX Format CCD image sensor delivers vivid color and sharp detail, great for making beautifully detailed enlargements of 24 by-36 inches and beyond. High resolution also provides room for creative cropping.

Included 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor lens This ED glass element lens features ultra-high speed autofocusing and Nikon's Super Integrated Coating minimizes ghosting and flare to provide even higher contrast and more vivid images, even in challenging light conditions. A new compact rod-type Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-high speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and super-quiet operation.

Fast startup with instant shutter response A fast 0.18 second startup combined with split-second shutter response and rapid-action shooting at up to 3 frames per second makes it easy to freeze special moments instantly.

Nikon D80 highlights
The D40x is capable of shooting a rapid three frames per second.
Shoot at up to 3 frames per second The D40x can fire continuously at a speed of up to 3 frames per second, capturing high-quality action sequences of children in sporting activities such as soccer, baseball and much more.

2.5-inch, 230,000-pixel color LCD monitor with 170-degree wide-angle viewing Playback images are easy to see and function menus are easier to use with a larger and brighter color LCD monitor. The large 2.5-inch LCD monitor enables image preview at up to 19 times magnification and has large type fonts with easy-to-view menus.

3 colorful display options All new display options: Classic, Graphic and Wallpaper. Carefully designed color schemes help make changing camera settings easier than ever.

Built-in Speedlight with i-TTL automatic flash control Nikon's innovative i-TTL flash control evaluates flash exposure with incredible precision to achieve better automatic flash balance and deliver outstanding results. The built-in Speedlight is always at the ready and brings beautiful exposures in darkened conditions, as well as adding sparkle for fill flash in outdoor situations for enhanced twilight shots or an added impact to daylight images. In low-light or back-light situations, added illumination from the built-in Speedlight can make the difference between an average snapshot and a dazzling picture.

8 Digital-Vari Program automatic shooting modes Eight Digital Vari-Program Modes include: Auto Flash-OFF, Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close Up and Night Portrait; each of which adjusts automatically for optimal results for everyday shooting situations. Each mode considers lighting conditions and possibilities, aperture, shutter speed, white balance, hue, tone, sharpening and more to make creative photography as simple as rotating the mode dial.

Nikon 40x highlights
In-camera editing functions include red-eye correction.
In-camera image editing Highly versatile in-camera editing features through the Retouch Menu include Nikon D-Lighting, Red-Eye Correction, Image Trim, Image Overlay, Monochrome (Black and White, Sepia and Cyanotype) along with Skylight, Warm Tone and Color Balance filter effects. This provides greater creative freedom without the need for a computer, for those who prefer to send pictures directly to a printer.

New advanced HELP Menu system with Assist Images The D40x's newly introduced Assist Images help you select the appropriate settings for many camera features by showing an example image typical of that setting, as well as an advanced HELP Menu for the current item selected. The D40x's Question Mark icon (?) indicates that help is available for the currently selected item; just press the HELP button beside the LCD monitor to see a context-sensitive HELP page.

Nikon 3D Color Matrix Metering II The D40x's 3D Color Matrix Metering II evaluates each scene for brightness, color, contrast, size and position of shadows and highlights, selected focus area and camera-to-subject distance, comparing that information against an onboard database of more than 30,000 actual photographic scenes. The result delivers instantly and precisely determined exposures for each scene, even in challenging lighting conditions.

Fast, accurate 3-Area Autofocus The D40x's advanced 3-Area AF system and the refined algorithms inherited from more advanced Nikon digital SLR cameras deliver fast, efficient and precise Autofocus. AF refinements deliver greater precision with fast, more consistent subject acquisition and improved focus tracking for consistently sharper pictures.

Nikon D40x highlights
Enjoy easy in-camera optimization.
Image Optimization options The D40x's Image Optimize setting lets photographers adjust color, contrast and sharpening, as well as other image settings, according to the type of scene or output desired. Settings include: Normal, Softer, Vivid, More Vivid, Portrait, Custom and Black and White, each of which are automatically adjusted based on sophisticated Nikon algorithms or user-selected settings for optimum results.

Up to 520 Images per Battery Charge The supplied EN-EL9 rechargeable battery will allow for shooting up to 520 images per charged based on CIPA battery testing standards.

In-depth review from dpreview.com:
Read the full Nikon D40x review at dpreview.com.
The D40x has the same compact, lightweight body and easy-to-use control layout, in fact the only external physical difference [between it and the Nikon D40] is the badge... Based on the specs and features, this camera is clearly aiming to knock the Canon Digital Rebel XTi off its pedestal. Read the full Nikon D40x review at dpreview.com.
