Pros: Fantastic sensor, weight, size, very robust.

Cons: He doesn't like the dark, at 800 ISO you can already notice a lot of noise, only three points of focus.

Opinion: It was my first Nikon and I was immediately thrilled, accompanied me on my photographic holidays in half the world, with a Tamron 12-200 I shot anything everywhere. Of course always with good light condition, but even at night with tripod stremes she defended herself well. The construction, even if plastico is much more solid to the touch (born in 2006 it had a cost of more than 400 euros) even compared to the series 3000 and 5000. To start and not only for me is great also because you can find it with really few euros of spending still in great condition. With only 6 megapixels, the shots are light and easily manageable in postproduction even without having the latest level PCs hungry for ram.

Pros: Sensor in my opinion excellent: The few MPX available, combined with CCD sensor technology, allow you to get (at 200 ISO) a "clean" and a sensational photo sharpness. It speaks to you one that uses also a D700 FF, then with a term of comparison "Stern". Compact and light body. It has few commands, but I never really felt the "lack" of anything. What's needed is everything.

Cons: Well.. All the cons of entry level: No AF motor, only 3 focus points, a single ring nut to handle times and diaphragms, possibility of "cropping" the photo virtually non-existent given the low number of available MPX. Reduced dynamic range, "simplified", I would call it.... But still overall more than satisfactory!

Opinion: Let's start from the rendition of the photos: I used it always paired with 35 1.8 dx or Sigma 17 50 OS 2.8 fixed. In good light conditions, managing to stay on low ISO (200, 300, Max 400 ISO), it churn out images from the exciting details!!! The feeling of sharpness is unbelievable! With the 17 50 you count the lashes by enlarding people's faces. The machine body is compact, lightweight, very plasticous but it gives Comuqnue a feeling of greater robustness than the subsequent series 3000 and 5000 (I had them, almost all.... I speak with knowledge of the cause... The D3300, for example, feels much more plasticose in hand than this D40) the essential functions have all, then, of course, has all the intrinsic limits of entry level. A special praise to the CCD sensor: I repeat: Over the years I bought, owned, used and then also sold the D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000,.... Of all I kept, not by chance, the D40, which I continue to use with the D700.

Pros: Compactness, Sharpness, Noise content

Cons: Too many commands accessible only via menus

Opinion: The D40 is the ideal camera to start shooting with good satisfactions It 's very clear and with a sound that stands out above 800 ISO. The body is compact, lightweight and ergonomic. Unfortunately almost all commands are accessible only via the menu. The viewfinder is large and bright but unfortunately offers little guidance. For what concerns the flash is well synchronized up to 1/500. Although it has a resolution of only 6 megapixels can give many joys to a beginner without having to spend crazy.

Pros: lightweight, compact, economical, good colors, great way to start, heavy duty battery (after 5 years ago still have the same number of photos just taken)

Cons: made at ISO 800 already on the poor, AF slow and imprecise, slow burst, it gets dirty easily too easily, automatically chooses impostaioni often wrong and aims to uare the flash to take a lot of light in manual improves but the commands to change the various values via the menu are all so slow and cumbersome, not too bright viewfinder is very small and is always full of dust, but battery is a few shots (approximately 400 automatic, manual shooting RAW always having to go to the settings menu uses very the display and then the battery drops to 250 shots if you do not use the flash), few mpx

Opinion: for what it has cost not behave badly introduced me to the world of photography facendomene you fall in love often do you stop the wings in difficult situations but it is not bad to start now there are obvious d3100 etc. .. which are better but are also passatti 5 years. the kit was sold with the 18-55 and 55-200 so it was really easy to get started right away giving you a good amount, but it is almost impossible to drop as it loses a lot

Pros: Robust, fast and reliable AF, 1/500s flash sync, screen reproduces the pictures; Battery Life

Cons: Only 3 AF points; minimum ISO 200, AF only with motorized lenses;

Opinion: It 'was my first SLR, the car that made me fall in love with photography. At the time the choice was in ballot with the EOS 350, at the end butchers and made her an offer. In days not too extreme pulls out of the spectacular photos, files are clean and crisp, the automatic adjustment of color rarely are influenced by environmental conditions. Suffers a little in the picture landscape for its 6 megapixel and has not made a sublime shadows (dynamic range). On vacation is unbeatable, lightweight and compact. Regarding the AF I have never betrayed even though sometimes I felt the need to avre some point AF +. I've already done of 50,000 + shots and still going like a bomb. The estate is exceptional battery after 5 years we still do + to 350 photos on a single tank, and the flash sync 1/500s I have come in handy many times. Video from 2.5 faithfully reproduces the pictures taken, RAW files are easily manageable. With this machine you can safely shoot in JEPG with results that always meet with little effort. It is now a little elderly but for beginners is an excellent school. The advice all my life!
