Might be worth adding abbreviated v of specs to make it easier to see what your getting as that blurb is a little elongated.

Good price, be careful about the lack of AF motor (it won't work with many older lenses).

The iso at 200 minimum isnt that good either.
#8
Nice deal.
voted hot
I'll still hold out for a great deal on the superior Canon 350d or 400d.
The 350D is already down to £400 but no sd card, bag or tripod available.
#9
I'm not too knowledgable on things like this so can anyone tell me what the zoom is in language I can understand (i.e. 5 X Optical Zoom).

Cheers
#10
Anyone wanting to see an up to date review of this camera should pick up a copy of next weeks "Amateur Photographer" (the real photographers ;-)weekly read). In the shops Tuesday.

I get my copy by subscription (arrives the Saturday before being in the shops) and have just opened it to find a head to head review of the Nikon D40 and Canon 400D. The Nikon just comes out on top.

Film is still the best though!

No offence meant but you might be better sticking to sometheing like the Panasonic FZ7 - 12x optical zoom and no lens swapping just at the wrong moment.
#12
If you get the two lenses that are with the offer which are the 18mm-55mm and the 55mm-200mm the optical zoom ratio is 55/18 = 3 X and 200/55 = 3.6 X, the two lenses will give you a good range for most uses, but consider (if you can afford it) getting the 18-200 VR lens, it is superb. Remember that the D40 does not have a drive motor so older Nikon lenses wont work with it, well at least the autofocus wont. Take a look at the review: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond40/
Hope this helps you.

hmm, def. depends what kind of work you do, you cant [imo] generalise across the board
#14
Yea Right. 6MP Nikon against 10MP Canon. I think not.
#15
Another generally positive review:

http://www.bythom.com/d40review.htm

Thom and Ken Rockwell have both written about this becoming their preferred walkaround camera, despite its limitations in comparison with it's big brothers. Megapixels aren't everything.

The silver body is a bit naff though...

It's not about megapixels, it's about image quality.

Believe me, a 6MP Nikon can take sensational pictures, so much so that people's jaw drop when they see the photographs.

Let the pictures do the talking: http://www.pbase.com/dlcmh/d70_amazing_pics

Yes, that's the Nikon D70, but the D50 is just as capable in the right hands and knowledge. Both are 6MP.

:thumbsup:

Edit: My point is, don't be put off by megapixels because that in itself means nothing. More important is the skill of the photographer. :)
#17
If you dont want the accessories then you can get the D40 w/18-55 kit lens for £364.24 from Ebuyer delivered.

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/122741

PS Agreed, a lot of people think that more megapixels means better image quality. Yes megapixels is important to some extent, more so if you want to print large but a 5 megapixel camera can easily print 20x16! You will get much better pictures from most, if not all, 6mp SLR than any 10mp point and shoot camera.

Both Nikon and Canon alternatives are very good as are most digital SLR's these days.
#18
I have done a comparason with top brand cameras all with top lens & the extra MP DOES then make a difference. I'm not talking some cheap 6MP against a Nikon or Canon 3MP (both would almost certainly be better). But I was awaiting this Nikon & to find they only put 6MP when now, 10 MP is the norm was the killer for me.
#19
Some good info in this thread guys, thanks :)

I just got mine this week, I got the black model from jessops using code sale20.
It all came to £373 next day delivered! (on top got £10off with QUIDCO). Really impressed by the good service from jessops. I also got the Extreme III SD card for it on ebay which is quite a bit faster than the Ultra that comes with this package. Got the case "topload zoom mini lowepro" which fits with the camera nicely (standard ones are a bit too big for d40s.)

Overall it's one sweet camera guys. It's a really fast and the quality of images is great. We are passed MegaPixels discussions here, anyone who know a bit of Digital Photography will know that more Pixels doesnt mean better images :thumbsup:

£100 off a 400D and I'll be a happy(ish) :-D

Hiya,

nice to hear you managed to get one. I think you did the right thing going with Jessops as oppose to from HongKong. I love mine even though my uncle swears i made a mistake not going with the Canon 350. I made my decision after being convinced that the lense on the Nikon was superior and seeing some fantastic travel pictures taken using the D40.

Im looking at some Sd cards at the moment, the one i have is pants so i will check out those on ebay. How much did you pay for yours.

Anyways glad to hear your happy with your purchase i will happily sit with you on the team Nikon sofa.
#23
unless you need to make large prints, say above 20 x 16, you will find that the Nikon D40 beats the EOS 400 hands down

megapixel resolution between 6mp and 10pm is not noticeable on a 6 x 4 print.
#24
remember if you buy from outside the EU it won't have a warrantee, they do but you will have to pay a fortune in postage
#25
Thanks for this!
Just went instore and mentioned the offer and the honoured it even though the instore bundles were different....I now own my first DSLR camera :D
#26
No offence taken Andy - not sure why I should be offended!

Ticker - thanks I'll look at costs of getting a 'better' zoom.
#27
Okay so which one is best, the

Canon 400d, or 350d

of the D40 or D50 nikon

Had a 350d which I found the be a bit weighty when using non canon lenses:-(

so sold it... but bearing in mind the prices now still seems a good buy esp with the £100 discount

any views on this - appreciate any thoughts
