Thoughts from an amateur
Member Name: release5
Advantages: Lots of great features for not a lot of money
Disadvantages: Quite fiddly for an experienced photographer
This was the first time we have purchased a proper camera. We had considered both the Nikon and the Canon equivalent. When we read magazines they all said go for the Canon, when we spoke to photographers almost all suggested the Nikon. In the end the decision came down to what we wanted, how much we wanted to spend and what the cameras offered. This was a great buy.
The images from the D40x is great with 10.2 mp you know that it will be good quality up to poster size. The colours are vivid but also natural.
Nikon has developed a very compact interface to get to a whole range of controls which means that for the amateur who demands little of the camera it is easy. For the more experienced user this can be quite fiddly.
The display at the back is very clear and you do have a really good battery life for this camera. This charges up quickly and with a huge memory card can store hundreds of high resolution photos. This was a great buy and we are saving up to get some alternative lenses to make the most of this.
Summary: Great starter camera
