I don't know anything about this company but if they're any good it's hot. Hopefully Amazon and Dixons might price match them soon.

Yeah, as hotshot_147 said, 6.1 MP is plenty much plenty! All cameras compress what comes from the sensor into a JPEG, this usually means a lot of detail is lost to give usable images of a few meg. Cameras like the D40 do less (or cleverer) compression than most 10MP compact cameras do and also give the option of using RAW data which is hardly compressed much, giving far better detail. Reviews are good for this camera!

Variations on this deal get posted pretty much every day.

If you want to see how 6.1MP SLRs make 12MP compacts look utterly feeble, check out Flickr. Nikon's SLR optics walk all over any compact you care to mention, even the very expensive ones.

Actually the D40 like all DSLR's has a much larger physical sensor before any of the processing goes on. Makes for big difference in quality of image compared to compacts although DSLRs don't suit everyone nor would everyone see the difference for what they do with the images. There are loads of discussions on this camera and quality from previous threads as the price has dropped. Nice camera. I wish the D80 would follow

I can confirm this shop exists, it has been in Middlesbrough for several years. I bought a compact digital camera there earlier this year.
#10
i got one of these for work, its ok regarding quality, especially for this price. Two disadvantages: no auto bracketing (for those incredible contrast rich photographs) and if you want to run it from ac/power, you have to buy nikon adapter etc... .

Anybody knows a slr at similar price doing auto bracketing?
#11
smaller megapixel = bigger photo cell sites = better image quality.
somehow people swears that the opposite is true. :roll:
