Nikon D40 Collects DIWA Gold Award

Nikon D40 DIWA Gold Award

DIWA, or the Digital Imaging Websites Association, has bestowed a DIWA Gold Award to the Nikon D40 digital SLR, validating it as “a quality built camera with good ergonomic design, user-friendly operation, fast and precise functions, excellent image quality and a very attractive price.”

“With priority on performance rather than marketing tricks and gimmicks, the D40 is currently as close to the perfect DSLR you can get for a reasonable sum of money,” says DIWA test manager Kai Thon.

The Nikon D40 is an entry-level DSLR with 6 megapixels and a host of other features and technologies inherited from its more expensive siblings like the Nikon D80 and D200, its excellent 3D Colour Matrix II metering, high quality image-processing algorithms and fast performance, for instance.

Nikon has since released an update to the D40, the Nikon D40x which retains all the features but bumps the resolution up to 10.2 megapixels. The D40x also has faster continuous shooting capability and wider ISO sensitivity.
