In fact it can be said that the Nikon D40x is a development of the Nikon D40, namely the D40 has a 6.1-Megapixel D40, able to get 2.5 fps, and the lowest ISO D40 is ISO 200, also external flash sync speed is 1/D40 200detik while the D40x already achieve 1/500detik. The last difference is in the power of the larger battery on Nikon D40x, by spec is 10% more powerful than the D40.
Officially, in the early stages of the launch bundled along with the D40x kit lens that is 18-5 mm, but the appropriate development, it will likely come packaged with Nikon’s other product, such as a range of lenses more tele and camera bag as well as memory (this is optional depending on the place of the seller).
Like previous Nikon cameras namely D40, Nikon D40x camera also has no built-in focus motor drive at bodynya, this causes the autofocus function on the camera D40x can only work with lenses that have a drive motor, that is the type of AF-S and AF-I. Autofocus motor for the issue, depending on the actual needs of the user, if we keep using more provisioning kit lens or AF-S type other then this issue is not updated is great, but if you imagine will have the fix lens 50 mm Nikor lenses or the output (and looking forward to using autofocus), should probably be considered to have a camera type on it, that is for example the D80.
Speedlight Flash will pop-up automatically exit if we shoot on less or light conditions can be imposed as well as the fill in flash when it was about to shoot the object part tow light (strong backlighting). Camera D40x doesn’t have a PC Sync port on the body, so if we want to connect with external flash, we can use optional Nikon AS-15 sync adapters. The adapter is placed on the D40x camera hotshoe and serves as the standard PC sync connector.
Lack of a package is the D40x cameras this is no software RAW default. If you’re happy to use the RAW file format on your photo, then it should be considered to have software capable of processing RAW format from this camera, because there is a general software to JPG format, where cameras in General is definitely available JPG format. For a KIT lens, some users find the purple fringing on certain conditions, but perhaps this is not a big problem for some users.
The performance of the Nikon D40x very satisfactory, since we turn on the camera until ready to use very short time so that we don’t miss an important moment. The time used to focus is also very good, it is also good to use for for less light conditions with the help of a powerful AF-assist. Power battery also was better than any Nikon D40 camera. To transfer photos from the camera to the computer, can use high speed USB 2. Can use manual SLR camera functions in General. LCD SCREEN on Nikon D40x measuring 2.5 “is pretty big, and the results look pretty bright and sharp LCD.
