NEW.. Version Nikon D40X
Posted by Diney on Saturday, March 10, 2007
The Nikon D40 was announced just under four months ago, and yet here we are with a new version of that camera. The D40X has the same compact lightweight body and easy to use control layout, in fact the only external physical difference is the badge. Under the bonnet Nikon has swapped out the D40’s six megapixel CCD for a ten megapixel unit, this also provides a lower base sensitivity of ISO 100 and must utilize dual readout because continuous shooting frame rate has gone up from 2.5 fps to 3.0 fps. Based on the specs and features this camera is clearly aiming to knock the EOS 400D (Digital Rebel XTi) off its pedestal.
Differences compared to the D40 :
- 10 megapixel sensor
- Lower base sensitivity (ISO 100 vs ISO 200)
- Auto ISO option includes ISO 200
- Faster continuous shooting (3 fps vs. 2.5 fps)*
