Digital Camera Review have published their review of the new Nikon D40 Digital SLR, it features a 6 megapixel sensor, a new compact body (although it’s not as small as the Olympus E-400), a 2.5″ screen, ISO 200 – 1600, 2.5fps shooting, a near-instant startup of 0.18 seconds. Available from Amazon UK for £389 with kit lens.
“The Nikon D40 was announced just in time for the holiday buying season. Nikon’s goal with the D40 was to introduce an affordable digital SLR that is easy to use and compact to address a couple of the reasons why people decide against buying a digital SLR. The D40 features a 6.1 megapixel DX format sensor, a 2.5 inch LCD with a nice graphical user interface, and it comes as a kit with an 18-55mm lens for under $600. ”
