Nikon 10.2-Megapixel D40x DSLR

Without teasers or fanfare, Nikon today popped a new Nikon D40x model, updating its successful entry-level D40 with a higher 10.2 megapixel resolution, faster continuous shooting capability and wider ISO sensitivity.

The new D40x powers-up in a near-instant 0.18 second and can shoot up to 3 pictures per second, non-stop for up to 100 shots.

The company said the D40x’s 10.2-effective megapixel CCD imaging sensor is complimented by Nikon’s exclusive 3D Color Matrix Metering II and an improved Nikon Image Processing Engine that together ensure picture quality with analyzed exposure, refined details and natural, accurately rendered colors.

The new Nikon camera also offers an exclusive in-camera image editing features that add to the D40x’s “fun factor” by providing greater creativity without the need for a computer.

The D40x comes packaged with the new 3X 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor lens and is compatible with all of Nikon’s AF-S and AF-I Nikkor lenses.

Prices: $730 Body only or $800 Body with the kit lens. Available April 2007.
