Nikon officially unveiled the D40 today, a new budget DSLR worth your attention. First off, they've stopped upping the megapixel count, and have left it alone with a 6MP CCD, which is fine, because I don't shoot above that anyhow for the web or personal images. Then it has a 3200 ISO rating making for terrific low light performance. Canon's competing Rebel XTi only goes up to 1600, for example, so the Nikon gets an extra stop. It'll shoot at 2.5 per second, and there's in camera retouching of red eye, shadow and highlight enhancement, and others. It uses SD cards, which is nice, because I've got a whole lot of em lying around. And the body itself is small, yet packs a 2.5-inch LCD.
Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
