Expert Review Nikon D40x - Digital SLR Review
Published on: 8/20/2007 4:10 AM
When Nikon introduced the D40x back in March of this year, they noted that it "...maintains the same compact size, portability and ease-of-use as its already successful sister camera, the D40, and adds features like higher 10.2 megapixel resolution, faster continuous shooting capability and wider ISO sensitivity". Sister camera? More like identical twin sister camera, since that little D40x badge on the front of the body is the only external distinguishing characteristic between the two models - Nikon lists identical dimensions and weights for each. Beauty is only skin deep, however, and while these two cameras may look the same, there are those aforementioned added features to differentiate the twins. Let s see what Nikon's entry level big sister brings to the digital imaging the full review
