Thom Hogan has reviewed the new 10 megapixel Nikon D40x Digital SLR, and compared it to the 6 megapixel Nikon D40. The D40x features the same compact body, a 2.5″ screen, and adds a 10 megapixel sensor, ISO 100 – 1600, and 3fps shooting, it has a near-instant startup of 0.18 seconds. The D40x is available for £474 with kit lens.
“The D40x retains all the things that are likeable about the D40 and gives you a 10mp sensor that produces images that are arguably slightly better than the D80 can produce (at least for JPEG files). You pay for that extra resolution two ways: extra dollars up front and reduced flash flexibility due to the all-mechanical shutter.”
