Few electronic products five years old can be considered to be up to date. The D40x might be the exception. br brWhile newer cameras offer more pixelsc few can produce an image as crisp and warm as this Nikon. I own several newer point and shoot cameras in the 16 to 18 megapixel range from Sony and Canonc and stillc this D40x produces a photo that stands up or surpasses either of them. The reason is that the Nikon sensor is coupled with very clean electronics. As you enlarge the image on your computer screenc the Nikon image begins to show its pixels more like film grain than electronic artifacts. Other cameras have L shaped jpg artifacts that clearly cry out electronic image. The Nikon has the warmth and grain structure more like Kodak film. Because of thisc the image has a nicer look to it than many newer camerasc including Nikons own D5100 with nearly double the pixels. br brAnother benefit of the D40x is the ability to use SDHC cards up to 32 GIG. The Nikon D50 and other cameras of this vintage are limited to the 2 GIG sized SD cards. If you can find one of these in goodc clean conditionc it will produce images as good as most newer cameras in this price rangec and certainly better than most of the point-and-shoot and bridge cameras.
