Less Waiting, More Wonder
Speed and accuracy to act on the moment

A fraction of a second can last forever Some of life's most powerful moments are also the shortest: your daughter after her first ballet lesson; your son as he scores the winning goal; your dog catching that first Frisbee. Did you capture the decisive moment? Missing it can be frustrating, but with the D40 those days are over. Just turn it on for a near-instant response (0.18 seconds) and a fast, razor-sharp autofocus. Shoot and voila! Your special moments are saved perfectly.

Less Night, More Light
Let Nikon flash technology illuminate your images

Simply brilliant: Nikon flash technology Light is essential to great pictures. That's why the D40 comes with Nikon's unmatched flash technology. Forget about washed-out, unnatural color. The D40 provides the right light ? even in low-light or backlit situations. Just use Auto mode and Nikon will do the calculations for you. The result: subtle, superb images. For more sophisticated flash photography, try Nikon's external Speedlights. When combined with the D40, the advanced Creative Lighting System turns the darkest situations into dazzling photo opportunities.

Extraordinary Nikon Image Quality - The D40's high-resolution image quality is made possible by Nikon's high-performance 6.1 megapixel Nikon DX format CCD imaging sensor and exclusive Nikon image processing engine which assures stunning sharpness and color.

Easy Operation with Intuitive Controls - Intuitive controls make the D40 point-and-shoot simple, enabling even first-time SLR users to capture beautiful memories perfectly.

Nikon's Smallest Digital SLR Ever! - At just over 16 ounces, the beautifully styled and compact D40 makes high-performance digital SLR photography easier and more convenient than ever.

Fast Startup with Instant Shutter Response - Fast startup combined with super-fast shutter response and rapid-action shooting at up to 2.5 frames per second makes it easy to freeze special moments instantly.

Includes 3x 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens - Designed exclusively for use with Nikon DX-format digital SLRs, this ultra-compact 3x zoom offers Nikkor sharpness and versatility in a wide variety of shooting situations.

Shoot at up to 2.5 frames per second - The D40 can fire continuously at a speed of up to 2.5 frames per second, capturing high-quality action sequences of children in sporting activities such as soccer, baseball and much more.

2.5-inch color LCD monitor with 3 colorful display options - Playback images are easy to see, and function menus are easier to use with a larger and brighter color LCD monitor. The large 2.5-inch LCD monitor enables image preview at up to 19 times magnification and has large type fonts and easy-to-view menus as well as three all-new display options: Classic, Graphic and Wallpaper.

High-performance 6.1megapixel Nikon DX format CCD imaging sensor - Nikon's DX format CCD image sensor delivers vivid color and sharp detail, great for making beautifully detailed enlargements of 16 x 20 inches and beyond. High resolution also provides room for creative cropping.

These features provide greater creative freedom without the need for a computer, for those who prefer to send pictures directly to a printer.

New advanced HELP menu system with Assist Images - The D40's newly introduced assist images help you select the appropriate settings for many camera features by showing an example image typical of that setting as well as an advanced HELP Menu for the current item selected. The D40's Question Mark icon (?) indicates that help is available for the currently selected item; just press the help button beside the LCD monitor to see a context sensitive help page.

Fast, accurate 3-Area Autofocus - The D40's advanced 3-area AF system and the refined algorithms inherited from more advanced Nikon digital SLR cameras deliver fast, efficient and precise autofocus. AF refinements deliver greater precision with fast, more consistent subject acquisition and improved focus tracking for consistently sharper pictures.

Image Optimization Options - The Nikon D40's Image Optimize setting lets photographers adjust color, contrast and sharpening as well as other image settings according to the type of scene or output desired. Settings include: Normal, Softer, Vivid, More Vivid, Portrait, Custom and Black and White, each of which are automatically adjusted based on sophisticated Nikon algorithms or user-selected settings for optimum results.

Built-in Speedlight with i-TTL automatic flash control - Nikon's innovative i-TTL flash control evaluates flash exposure with incredible precision to achieve better automatic flash balance and deliver outstanding results. The built-in Speedlight is always at the ready and brings beautiful exposures in darkened conditions as well as adding sparkle for fill flash in outdoor situations for enhanced twilight shots or an added impact to daylight images.

Bright, accurate SLR viewfinder - A large viewfinder makes composition easier, and overall viewfinder brightness makes focusing in low-light photography possible. Its bright and sharp viewfinder, with 0.8x magnification, ensures precise composition.

Automatic exposure with 8 Digital-Vari Program Modes - Eight Digital Vari-Program Modes include: Auto Flash-OFF, Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close Up or Night Portrait, each of which adjusts automatically for optimal results under varied conditions.

Nikon 3D Color Matrix Metering II - The D40's 3D Color Matrix Metering II evaluates each scene for brightness, color, contrast, size and position of shadows and highlights, selected focus area and camera-to-subject distance, comparing that information against an on board database of more than 30,000 actual photographic scenes

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Think of events that you take pictures of... now how many times in your life do they occur? Now, do you want to trust those moments to a cheap point and shoot or a quality camera? I decided if it was important enough for me to take a pic, might as well take a good one!

I must admit, I am a first time D-SLR user. I got tired of seeing pictures from friends of mine with D-SLR's that were stunning (and they knew nothing of photography) while my more common digital cameras just lacked the quality I saw in theirs. My P&S's were not basic either, I was using highly rated $300 cameras for that and they still just did not seem the same. Once Ritz came out with this package of the D40, two lenses, bag, etc... it was a done deal. That is why I never looked back... and I never use a point and shoot anymore! In addition... this camera is an "old model" and practically a dinosaur in today's electronics age. It rolled out THREE years ago and the fact that it is still competive and being used says volumes for the style, performance, and value it continues to bring.

GREAT THINGS
- Image quality
- Very minor shutter lag (great for catching those "blow out the candles" moments...) No more snapping the photo only to have the camera take the picture a second later, costing you the shot.
- Feel of the camera... it just fits your hands well.
- Menu system and help menu... great features to help first time SLR users adjust to the features.
- Package deal (videos help a lot with features)... plus Ritz had available for sale a specific D40 video that really opened my eyes to the capabilities of this.
- Inexpensive UV filter protects lens elements meaning less chance of damage to actual lens.
- Battery life is amazing, and if left on, auto shuts off so you do not return to find a dead battery just when you need to snap a photo!

Things that I are not so great...
- I love having the 18mm to 200mm that two lenses provide... I hate having to change them! Perhaps this is the reason the 18-200mm lens costs the same as this whole D40 package?
- Lens cap tethers would really be nice.
- Remembering to switch lens to "M" before manual focusing is important and can be a pain.
- Size... no matter how small this is, it is still not the size of a pocket camera.
- Will spoil you from ever wanting to use a pocket camera again.
- Get ready to look like a tourist... you need to not only carry the camera, but the extra lens as well! But one thing you will notice... as the price of these has dropped, there are many more DSLR users out there...

All in all, I have never regretted this purchase and it has turned me into an amateur photographer! Again, if the situation calls for taking a photo, why not take it with the best you can afford to use... and with these prices, no DSLR is out of budget anymore!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Bought this for general photo use. The wife hated using the camera we had before, because it took forever to zoom in and focus. With this camera it is hard to get her to put it away. The first day she had it we went to the kids triathlon and she shoot over 500 pictures with it. Most just goofing around and testing it, but she couldn't get over the easy of using it! I would highly recommend buying the extra 55-200mm lens for this camera for that extra distant shoot you will need. We used the 55-200mm lens the whole day at the triathlon.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

[...]It was a pleasure to learn a newer camera with the simplicity this camera brings. The power consumption is minimal with me being to be able to take 100+ pictures and not have to recharge. This camera writes to memory very fast, unlike my previous SLR that I ended up waiting for it to catch up sometimes. Low light focus is great, focus speed is FAST. I use to USB to download and those speeds are great as well. It's very hot here in Texas and the heat isn't a factor when using this camera, it is with some others.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

after using compact cameras for 5 years I started considering digital SLRs. People in the industry would always mention the D40 as a great way to start. Its a small, versatile camera that can go from point-and-shoot to the most elaborate combinations resulting in artistic creations.
The only thing this camera could use is exposure auto-bracketing, which is used to create HDR images. It allows, however, to adjust exposure manually.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I love to take pics of my small children. I didn't want to buy a real expensive camera yet because I'm chasing kids around and scared of damaging it. So far it has performed great. I would definitely recommend the sb400 flash to go with it. It makes a world of different for indoor shots.(used in photos below)
I really want to take pics with bokeh. The bad thing is the 50mm lens(which is the best for bokeh) will not auto-focus on this camera. I guess I should learn to manual focus!!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I have had the D40 for about 1 1/2 years now and I simply love it. My best friend loved it when she tried it and couldn't resist getting one. The quality of the photos is incredible and it's so easy to use. I have been told now several times that I need to sell my photography work. I love photography and this camera makes a great step when you are ready to advance your photography. Basically I can't say enough about it to fit on the page but I highly recommend it. Because of the D40 I have advanced in my photography capabilities and just bought the D5000.

My brother and his family strongly urged me to buy this. I am so glad I followed their advice!

Friends have commented on how great my pictures look now that I'm using a good camera! I can definitely tell a huge difference. And now these pictures are frame-worthy whereas my old camera's pictures really weren't. It takes GREAT pictures of children moving and fidgeting and captures it perfectly. No blurriness. The only thing I would want is the ability to take short videos with it, but then the newer versions of this camera do that. WONDERFUL camera! WONDERFUL pictures!

My first introduction into the digital SLR was with this camera, and for the new user it's wonderful. It has the abilities of the more expensive versions, but to a newbie, the interface isn't too difficult to understand. The deal with the 2nd lens is perfect!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I used to get so frustrated with my old digital camera. My 2 year old would be doing something cute and by the time I got the camera switched on, warmed up and clicked the button the moment had passed.

With the Nikon D40 you will get a great shot every time. There's no delay between shots, you dont have to wait for the flash to power up again, it's ready when you want it to be!

I used it at my daughter's soccer games and was thrilled with the action shots.

I was also very pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to figure out how to take a photo, right out of the box and without having to study the whole manual.

I use this kit for travel and fun. I have made some fantastic shoots with both lenses. The shutter release is so smooth. The detail of the shoots are fantastic and with some zooming in and out after the pictures are downloaded you will be amazed at you will see and find. I have some fantastic shoots of a coast guard search and recovery of a victim that I really didn't know I had in such detail at the time. The only problem I have had is getting the self timer to work when I needed it. But it won't be long and I will have that down to where I want it. Over all you can't go wrong with this kit.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Great camera - very user friendly. The lens is easy to change quickly for those "don't want to miss" moments - especially sporting events. My first week, I took 722 photos on 1 charge, and I only used 1/2 of my battery power. I do tend to turn it off or shut the flash if I am not using it continuously, but I was amazed that I could have gone on and on.
All the on-screen information and tutorials are great if you don't have the book right in front of you. Definitly a must have - especially if you have kids or grandkids to capture those special memories!

I love this camera. Due to the economic crisis, I was holding off on entering the SLR market, but after trying a friend's D40 I knew I had to make a sacrifice and get one. The only regret I have is not getting one sooner! Another friend recenlty purchased the D90,which I was fortunate to shoot. It's even more amazing. For an entry level into the Nikon arena, I'd highly recommend this camera for all.

I am not one to spend alot of money on myself. This is the first "real" camera I have ever purchased and I can't say enough about how easy it is to use and what wonderful pictures it takes! I bought the Nikon D40 kit and it came with the camera, two lenses, bag, videos all cords etc. The only additional thing you need to purchase is a good SD card and you are on your way to taking sharp, clear memories that will last a lifetime! I am a casual photographer and was tired of not catching "the moment" while out with the kids. This camera is fantastic. You will not be disappointed!!!

I have to get use to the weight but it is well balanced. The package was such a great deal I could not pass it up. I love this camera. It is my first SLR and is a great starter.

My world of art has been transformed from the paint canvas to the photograph. My camera goes where ever I go and the world is my canvas. I have been to three car shows since I purchased the camera and have some fantastic set piece of vintage cars, that would send any auto enthusiast running to purchase these photos. I'd like to say it was my artistic eyes but, the camera can be said to the biggest star.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Wanted to upgrade my digital camera that took OK pictures at best. Thought I would step up to the SLRs. Wow! Was I amazed at how great these pictures turn out. My first use has been taking pictures of my son's varsity baseball games. I can not believe how great the pictures turn-out. The first game I have a picture of a batter hitting a ball. The ball is as clear as can be in the picture. The second game I have a picture of a kid running to first and I see little specks of sand being kicked up from his shoes.

I did watch both videos. I haven't even tried to manually take pictures. Everything I have done is through the automatic settings. Even though a digital SLR is a little bit more than those small digital cameras the quality of pictures is above and beyond the difference in price. I will absolutely recommend to all to make the change. What is great about the Nikon D40 package is that you get an all in one deal at a great price. Though this is coined a starter model...I feel like a professional and I really am not sure why I would ever need a more expensive model.

I've been shooting with an SLR since 1975 and finally made the digital jump. The D40, dollar for dollar, is one outstanding camera for my uses. It is light and comfortable in my hands. Camera body and 55-200 lens weigh significantly less than the old 85-205 lens I used on my 35mm SLR.

I am very happy with the purchase and the quality of the images that I am able to produce. The versatility of this camera makes it a real pleasure to use.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Been shooting with SLR's since the 1980's and the D40 is the first DSLR I've owned. I love it. It's light and it shoots great photos.

I tend to shoot in a lot of low light situations and the kit lenses aren't up to par for that purpose. But, since I've begun to shoot in RAW mode I can tweak a bad photo up to par where it would've been more difficult to impossible with a jpeg image.

I have recommended this camera to others and 4 (four) of my co-workers have taken me up on my recommendation. I'm not joking, either. Four of them!

We have always liked photography, and wanted to be able to take our pictures to the next level. This camera has suited all our wants perfectly. It is not so large it's awkward to carry around just about everywhere we go. The only slight annoyance is that it re-uses photo numbers when the card has been whiped clean as opposted to every picture taken with the camera having a unique identifyer; this can make it difficult when storing on the computer.

I have been a film hold out for a long time and this is a good way to get into digital SLRs and then use the D40 in the future for a backup to the D3, etc. Nice set of zoom lenses to go with it and the throw in bag and videos were a great addtion.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

So far I really like my camera... I sat down and read some of the directions but not as much as I should. It is easy to figure out, thus far I have only used it on automatic but I am very pleased with the quality. This is my first SLR camera, I came up from a Canon point and shoot and am very glad I did.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

When we had our first child my wife and I were looking for a camera that would allow us to capture those once in a lifetime moments and a regular point and shoot just wasn't cutting it. We needed a camera that could take pictures fast, because if you've ever tried taking pictures of kids you know that you only get one chance most of the time. My wife likes the D40 vs the D80 because it is lighter and easier to handle and she is never going to use it for much more than taking pictures of the kids. Normally I would have jumped right in and bought the D80 but the D40 is more than enough camera for me and I probably wont need to upgrade until I either break it, lose it, or the D80 comes down in price so much I could by it with my lunch money :)

The D40 is limited to AF-S lens if you only want to use auto focus but you can use some AF lenses if you don't mind manual focus. We bought the the D40 package with the 18-55 and 55-200 lens and we have everything we'll ever need.

This package was a great buy. I compared it to other vendors offering Nikon kits and it was a superior deal. The 2 instructional videos were very helpful (much nicer than having to study a manual). It offers everything, except vibration reduction lense.

I did a lot of Research for what camera to get for my wife. I own a D70 and wanted a camera smaller with most of the newer generation features. The D40 has been a perfect fit. The deal I found on PhotoAlley was great. I bought the 2 lens kit (no-VR) and have been 100% satified. Will strongly consider them again in the future. Painless purchase.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I have been wanting this camera for a super long time... even after the Nikon D60 came out. The D40 is perfect for me, who just wants to take nice pictures of my family and friends. I picked the D40 over a slim, non- SLR digital camera cause of the quick shutter... in other words, actually being able to take the picture I want vs. everything moving before the picture is taken.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I have had a collage degree in photography since 1980. This is my 4th digital camera. First one I absolutely love! Fast - Accurate & Razor SHARP! The most important thing in photography is a sharp lens. I had a Sony with a great name brand lens that suffered from chromatic abrasion! Nikon D40 is fantastic! You won't find a better deal anywhere!
Unless your making highway billboard signs you will be happy with 6mps.
My printer holds 8 1/2 X 11 paper so my prints size is no larger then that. I am 100% satisfied with my purchase! Thanks Ritz Camera!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

My Mom and I share the camera and so far her only word to describe it is "Sweet!" She and I have both taken a couple hundred pics with it in the last week and are very happy.

My Mom took some pics of some birds at the beach and the sunset down here in Naples and they came out great.

I brought the camera on a recent trip to our camp in the Everglades and was pleased with how easy the camera is to use. I was able to get some great shots of the Fall Florida Fauna, and some snakes that stumbled into my path.

We would recommend this camera for anyone who is thinking of getting into the Digital SLR world. I'm glad we finally have.

Truly made a great gift for my son for his college graduation. After taking a few pictures let him try it then informed him it was his.

Did not like the fact that I had to go buy an SD card before I could take any pictures, for price could have had at least a 512 or 1G.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Just got it and I'm thrilled. A couple of negatives. The LCD in the rear is exposed. If you leave it hanging on your neck, because of the way the strap mounts are placed on the camera, it hangs in the "shoot position" (lens pointing forward). In my opinion, it should be pointing down so the LCD is horizontal and not likely to get scratched by something you're wearing (buttons, etc.). As it is, the LCD could get scratched by hitting a belt buckle or shirt/coat button.

The other thing that's annoying is the "info" screen that pops up when you first turn on the camera and appears (seemingly) after every shot. You have to wait several seconds for the screen to go away so you can focus through the eyepiece without the distraction of the light coming from the LCD. That SHOULD be an option you can turn on or off as needed and not always on. Other than that, I can't say enough good things about the photo quality along with all the options. With an 8gb mem. stick, you can get over 2200 pictures (fine quality no less) at a time and over 700 photos per battery charge. That's pretty impressive. I really love it and am really looking forward to getting the Tamron Macro lens I ordered for it. I'd recommend it without hesitation.

I use this product to capture and re-tell a story or emotions of an event, place, people. I love to use the 200mm lens at concerts and events from near and very very far. While I love the 55mm lens for indoor use and still images/posed pictures. The best part is the zoom feature and editing features in the camera. I love the fact that friends, family and artists receive the results and truly appreciate having such a high quality picture for a lifetime. Truly the best thing anyone can make no matter who you are. It is one purchase that will without a doubt pay for itself with no remorse or regret.

The camera is great for the average photographer that wants great pictures. Especially great if you have kids that don't stay still for too long. There was only one problem I have found. The camera "locked up" while I was doing a photo shoot because I was taking LOTS of pictures, very quickly.

This is one of the best purchases I made recently. My 2 month old baby's pictures look so much more lovely from this camera than from other point-and-shot ones. This is my first SLR and I have to say I wish I had it years ago! It's not just fun looking at photos you take, it's a beautiful thing when you find creative ways to capture precious moments and memories!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

This was a gift for my wife and she absolutely loves it. My sister in-law bought one this past summer and she told us how pleased she was. The only down side is not able to take a pic using the LCD screen, you have to use the eye piece. The second downside is that wife won't let me take it hunting! But overall an excellent piece of equipment

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

This camera just is simply incredible , Mine was a upgrade from a Minolta Dimage A2 and I feel like iv been living under a rock , seriously . I wish I purchased a D50 or another Nikon instead of my Dimage a2 . The camera is soo easy its just incredible when you see the results . The menu and options are easy to use . Buttons are placed great .... I AM NOT A PRO OR EXPERT IN ANY MEANS so there could be more comfortable / better cameras . I was going to purchase a D60 package through ritz and the girl basically talked me down to a D40 saying it really just has all you need . For my needs , Its fiting in perfectly so far .

The Nikon D40 is a great camera for the money. I have owned the D70 for a few years and I was looking for a lighter/smaller camera to take on long hikes. The D40 fits the needs for an active person looking for sharp pictures. To capture those special sights on those adventure fill hikes in the country.

We have a 14 month old daughter and we wanted a camera that could keep up with her along the way... This camera does that and then some... Everything is great. We are able to capture some of the best moments with this camera and I'll have to say if you like to take pictures invest in a greater GB SD memory card. In just a few minutes we shot amazing pictures which were around 100 or so that we could not even image doing with our old camera... Great flash, fast focusing, the ability to correct some red eye errors, easy to navigate thru menus... I could go on about this one... I highly recommend this camera to anyone looking at purchasing. This is a great package deal and for all are needs I would purchase this one again...

First digital SLR and we could not be happier! Although we did not realize the memory card was a seperate purchase (ordered on line) that was an easy fix, I watched the videos that came with the package and spent the rest of the afternoon shooting anything and everything. We are amazed at the quality and clarity and it is so easy to use. Get one for yourself and you will understand what we mean; we just can't say enough, except it is AWSOME!!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I've only had my camera for a short time, but I love it. The quality of my pictures are 100% better. I love having the two lenses. You can capture anything you want. I don't see needing a new lense or camera for a long time to come.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I bought this just in time. My son graduated Navy boot camp and I didn't want to risk bad photos with a small point-and-click. I needed a good quality camera, with a good zoom lens, without breaking the bank and without needing a large backpack to carry it. This was perfect. The quality of the camera is very good. Takes pictures at a rate of around 2.5 per second and it's very stable. I could zoom in and take great photos of one sailor in a ceremony of over a thousand -and it was indoors. I was really happy with the results. This Camera is great. It's easy to work with in auto-mode or you can work with shutter speed and aperture settings when needed. The battery lasted all weekend. I bought two backup batteries, worried that the battery would die quickly, but ended up not even needing them. The extra batteries come in handy though. You can keep one charged. I truly have not found anything that I do not like about this camera.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I have used the Nikon D70s, D80 and the D40 - while I prefer the D80 for the megapixels for enlargement, I have found that the D40 takes quality photos as well and now use both. It's not as quick on the shutter speed to catch sports inside, but with the right lens you can get great pictures outside, even at night. I would recommend this camera completely for the casual photographer. With the bonus lens package, this camera is a must buy for anyone in the market.

My granddaughter is now 2 1/2 and I'm so sorry I didn't buy it sooner. Shots are taken instantly and thats worth the price for me.

It's very easy to use and by itself has taught me so much more about photography, great menu set up and controls. Macro on this camera is also outstanding! I also had purchased the VR 55-200mm and its an outstanding product as well.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

This kit with a D40 body and two lenses is a great inexpensive introductory digital photography kit from a well-known world-class manufacturer. This is a good set to start into digital SLR photography. For the point and shoot digital photographer, the number of options and modes is a bit much. Take some time to learn these things and your photos will be great. Out of the box, in auto mode, this works great for the average photographer and is a great kit to learn with.

I filled up 2 2MB SD cards and just about every picture was perfect! The camera is easy to use, versatile, quick, and has a much better LCD screen than my point and shoot camera. You will not regret purchasing this camera!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

The D40 is our first DSLR. We've upgraded from our five year old point-and-shoot Kodak EasyShare. We know barely anything about photography, but we are really loving our camera. We have taken nearly 500 pictures in the month that we have owned it. Right now we mostly take pictures on the auto setting, but we are slowly gleaning more knowledge from the helpful DVDs and mostly from the instruction manual. We love the quality of the pictures and the speed of the response. We got sick of missing smiles for our one-and-a-half year old son and we just had twin daughters. Now we have the capability to captures those smiles instantaneously! If you're beginners like us, this camera is basic enough to take great pictures on Auto, but then has all the settings for you to really learn something about photography.We love the gadget bag--it fits the camera and both lenses with room to spare. The attachable carrying handle is sort of awkward, so we just stick with the shoulder strap.We'd like to get a 50 mm f/1.8 lens for the camera, but we've read that the lens isn't fully compatible with the D40--it only works manually and the auto settings don't work. That's one potential drawback.In all, this camera is light years ahead of point-and-shoot. I'm sure in the DSLR world it would be considered a "starter" camera. That's good enough for us. We sure liked the "starter" price for the kit--[$][...][...]we've been completely happy since.All of the pictures below were taken just on the Auto settings. No more missed smiles!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I will say that when I bought it said that the 55-200 mm lens that came with it was a VR, I even asked the person in the phone about it and she said yes, but when it arrived it was not a VR, I called to complain but they told me to return it if I did not want it. The only reason I bought from Ritz was because of the VR lens! Anyway the camera is great, Ritz camera is not so good and I was pretty disappointed with their customer service….

I am a beginner with SLR's and bought this camera to use as a hobby and to learn more about photography. The camera delivers excellent pictures, is relatively easy to use, and provides easy options for landscape, still photo, action shots, and other photos (I would recommend purchasing a more detailed D40 field book/manual). This is a great camera, especially for the price compared to other SLR's.

I thoroughly researched the D40, D40x, and D60 and after initially getting the D60 package deal with the 2 VR lenses, bag, etc [$]I returned it and bought the comparable D40 package at [...]Given this is just my first SLR (and I'm only using it for family pictures), I couldn't justify such a large purchase. Plus the only difference between the D60/D40x and the D40 is the megapixels. So, the $380 difference wasn't worth it to me.As for the camera, it blows away any of my countless point & shoot cameras. My only regret is that I should have bought one years ago. In a week I have more than 1000 pictures taken and can't wait to put together photo books online.So take the plunge. You won't regret it. Just look around because [...] take their turns in putting them on sale which should be around $600 for the package. Happy shooting!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

We had recently decided to make the jump to DSLR from our point-and-shoot and we couldn't be happier! The Nikon is easy to use out of the box and takes great pictures. This value priced package gives a great variety in lenses - we are constantly switching back and forth between the two lenses depending on the picture. In the first month we've taken well over a thousand pictures and we couldn't be happier with the camera.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

The Nikon D40 is the best overall camera ever created. My first (D)SLR was this camera, and as I study and learn more about photography I consider myself lucky to have started with the D40. The body is small, its pictures are rich and colorful. It has options to help you with your scene, or full Manual if you know what your doing. This camera has helped me understand the concepts and potentials available if you so choose.+ $PRICE$, Auto ISO, Large LCD Screen, and 6mp is more than enough for 99% of situations.- Software can lag sometimes, but u can mash all the buttons and it will catch up, so as your speed builds with the menus - it wont be too far behind. Sometimes it has trouble focusing in low light.My Flickr D40 go to [@]

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Great for everyone. It has the standard settings for people just getting started, and takes excellent pictures. Also great for the "expert", you can change all of the settings in manual mode to create the pictures you desire. Built in flash works great, and goes a long way. The only problem is the image stabilization. If you tend to have shaky hands, your pictures could be blurred.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

After looking at the family of Nikon digital SLR cameras, buying the D40 was an excellent decision. Unless you want to create poster-size prints, this 6 megapixel camera does everything that the D60 and D70 does without the additional price tag. Plus, I like the light-weight body of the D40...especially after having used the heavier Canon Rebel. All in all, the Nikon D40 is easy to use, fun to play with and the two lenses, the 18-55 and the 55-200 zoom lenses, which came with my package offer great viewing choices for the most part. I am trying to convince myself that I need another zoom lens, but for the type of photography I normally do, these two lenses really meet most of my needs.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Photo quality has taken a giant leap from the point-and-shoot I was using. So far I've used it to take portraits at a college reunion, and for shooting the grandkids. Haven't gotten out of the automatic mode, because it's so easy. I hope to get more creative as I learn the camera. The 55-200 zoom is great to catch candid portraits, and the battery charge seems to last fairly long. I haven't found anything to complain about, other than that relatives want to borrow it all the time.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I use my new Nikon camera system to share digital pictures of my family and friends with relatives back east via the Internet. This camera system is the perfect marriage of price and level of options. The two lenses included in the package provide all the range coverage needed for most of the photographs you will want to take. They are quiet, fast and have the high-quality optic's expected from Nikon lenses. The camera is light weight, fast and a joy to use. There are enough bells and whistles to keep you busy for weeks trying to figure out how they all work to provide such beautiful pictures. The two DVDs included with this system are exceptional in their ability to provide expert advice on how to use a Nikon and the lenses.The gadget bag is made of a waterproof material and has enough room to include all the things that came with the camera system. There is lots of padding and Velcro fixtures to lock the camera system in place and keep it from getting banged around while carrying.[...] I have enjoyed my camera system since the minute it arrived. And I'm sure you will also.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Excellent Value for money, I had some interest in art and photography, My friends suggested to buy a DSLR outfit to explore more, I had gone through a thousands of reviews and finally chose thisD40 ( A really really good camera for exploring DSLR world)

I am trying out all possible options in it, I had covered family occasions, nature, sports etc., and I am waiting for the fall colors and winter

i knew nothing about photography when I started with this, All you need is a little bit enthusiasm and a mood to explore options

The 2 DVDs that come with this outfit are very fantastic, They have explained all the options and alltypes of photography (like Sports, Day & night, Portrait, wildlife), That was the only 2 DVDs I watched and I started out taking snaps of whatever I see, Now I am a recognized photographer of my friends circle, they always want me around on all the trips they go and eagerly wait for the photos i took. Beleive me 95% of all snaps that i took are only from the standard modes that is available in camera and all of them are one of the kinds

I used 18-55 lens most of the time, The 55-200 lens was verymuch useful in taking snaps of Birds, Bunnies, Sports from outside the ground and candid shots of children

The only thing i would want in this is, additional focal points (there are only 3 points in D40, I heard that D60 has around 11 points), that is the only thing i wish to have

other than that its perfect for Starters, Casual users and Hobbyists. Its lighter than all models available in market,compact among all DSLrs, Has a fantastic Sensor,Noiseless

To Summarize, Worth of every penny we spend on it

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

This is a bargain - and a wonderful outfit. I have another review for the camera and normal zoom- the addition of the longer, tele-zoom really adds to the value. Like the standard lens. it is also very sharp. It is not stabilized, but I have found the camera ISO speed (one extra stop over others) to compensate for the absence of image stabilization (which extends the lens utility by 1-stop). And this lens is smaller and lighter than the equivalent IS lens!!

But having the flexibility to tweak settings and enjoy sharper, crisper images than your point and shoot---you won't be disappointed!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Originally considered the D80 but for the money this camera delivers. Very Lightweight, easy to use and produces excellent results. Only major drawback is no built-in focus motor so AF mount lenses won't autofocus. Yet, the two kit AF_S lenses are quite sharp and focusing is pretty fast. Plus, the small size of the D40 means you can take it anyplace.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I have had several occassions during shooting with the camera in the vertical position where the camera fails to function and it is displayed that the lens is not attached. I am going to contact Nikon and make a warranty claim. Other than that I have taken about 4-5,000 shots since early this year and I love it.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I needed a camera that could shoot successive photos quickly, focus fast and accurately, and be able to zoom and frame my son wrestling, or doing tricks on his skateboard. I now can stop him in air on a jump or while getting a reversal on the mat. The pictures are unbelievably clear and perfectly focused. Cost was a major consideration for me.

I later purchased, separately, the Nikon SB-600 dedicated flash. I needed to be able to cover the distance and needed the short recycling time. It works flawlessly and produces great bounce flash photography, perfectly exposed.

The gadget bag included in the package is perfect. It is designed to store and protect the camera with either lens mounted, the extra lens, and even the SB-600 flash, with perfectly sized compartments. You will be happy you got it when you see it.

Best of all, anyone can shoot great pictures with this camera. It is that simple to use, but has enough controls to please the person who wishes to take control of the settings and be creative.

Just buy it!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

In my opinion this kit is one of the greatest deals available for non-professional photographers. I won't rehash the many points made by other reviewers except to confirm that the 6.1 megapixel "limit" is a red herring. Beautiful 16"x20" enlargements can be made at this resolution so it is not an issue for 99% of potential users. Save the extra $$ you will spend for a 10+ megapixel camera and put them toward useful accessories such as tripod, external flash, and neutral protective lens filters.

The D40 does tend to overexpose a bit but by setting exposure compensation to -0.7 or so you can easily fix that.

As for the rest of the kit ... The two included lenses cover the vast majority of focal lengths you will need. Vibration reduction lenses would have been nice, but learning techniques to hold the camera steady works nearly as well. The included training DVDs are really useful for anyone new to digital photography, even if they are very familiar with film SLRs. The camera bag was much roomier than I expected - plenty of space for most non-pros in my view.

I have used Nikon film SLRs for more than 30 years. This is my first digital SLR and I expect I will be happy with it for at least 10 years.

The battery lasts forever, the menu is very user friendly, and the results I get are awesome! I've owned this camera for 6 months now and honestly can't complain about one thing!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I've been using my Nikon D40 over a year now for vacations, theater and work-related special events. It's so easy to use & fun to experiment with the different picture modes. There's always a challenge in our theatre with lighting but my photos always turn out great. The telephoto lens is great for close ups. I used it at my daughter's graduation and was very pleased.

The only cons I've experienced is the LCD is hard to view outdoors, but that could be true of any LCD lens. Be careful when purchasing filters because the fit isn't always true even with the correct size. Always try them on your camera to be sure.

Firt time users, be sure to purchase the HV filters to protect each lense. You don't want anything to scratch or ruin them. It's easier & cheaper to replace the filters than it is your camera lenses. Another hint: A friend told me she once used one of her cameras at Niagra Falls & the mist ruined it.

I'm so glad I made this investment & found one of my passions truly is photography. Thanks Ritz & Nikon!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

This is a great camera. It takes great pictures in Auto mode but, for the more serious photographer learning the programs is easy with the DVDs included. It's just a matter of taking the time to play with the programs. I was able to take professional looking pictures right out of the box. With the package of the two lenses, gadget bag, dvds along with the camera it is a great deal. I saved enough on accesories [...]that it was like getting the second lense free. This price beats [...]easily. Don't let the 6.1 megapixels discourage you. Unless you are a professional taking pictures for a magazine, newspaper or other print publication? You have plenty camera to give you quality pictures.

The camera is easy to use on P and Auto setting, but delving into the other functions takes some skill. This camera is a great starter to someone with my skill level to experiment with and learn. I definitely recommend this camera to someone who wants to take better photos than a point & shoot and to someone that is looking into entering the world of DSLR's.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I share copies of pictures with friends and family all the time. Everyone asks what kind of camera I use because the color and detail on the pictures is so great. I tell them it's a Nikon D40 Digital SLR and they are amazed the pictures are from a digital camera, not a film camera. I like the feel of the camera and the controls. The only thing I don't like is that when the battery is low (about half way), there is more lag time when I take a picture. Other than that, I think it's a great camera for all the types of pictures I take, nature, vacation, family, sports (even indoor, like basketball). Everyone wants me to take pictures at their events. Great camera!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I've had the D40 for about a year, and pair it with the accompanying kit lens, a 55-200mm zoom lens and the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 prime lens. With the zoom lens, the D40 is great, but when you open it to 1.4, the 3 focus areas REALLY puts a limit on how much you can reframe. I bought it as an upgrade from my point and shoot, but had I known that I'd have to buy super expensive AF-S lenses, I would have made a better initial investment and gotten at least the D80 or D200. But I take a lot of pictures, and if you never shoot with lens like the Sigma, this camera is pretty good all around.

I had no idea how much fun you could have with a camera, as well as the incredible photos that can be taken with a good camera. Not only is the D40 easy to use, the quality is incredible. I enjoy when my friends say 'There is no way you took that photo.'

This is an excellent camera. The two tele lenses it came with produce excellent photos and the camera has numerous features which give it great versatility. The only drawback thus far is the fact that it does not have the AF motor in the body which means the 1.8 50mm lense I just ordered will require me to focus manually. On the plus side, this drawback results in the benefit of a smaller and lighter camera body.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I have been shooting 35mm for many years (20+) and when I saw the price of this little gem drop to its current level I felt that now was, finally, the right time to jump into the digital SLR camp and boy am I ever glad I did. I went DSLR shopping with my girlfriend last summer when this camera was 100 dollars higher in price and even then I thought that it was a terrific bargain for the preformance level it gace you. After owning mine for little more than 2 weeks I can say that I have absolutely made a wise decision. The LCD screen is bright and dead on accurate. The built in flash is far better than any I have had on my 35mm SLRs. The image quality is second to none, and for those of you who are concerned with resolution, believe me this camera will not disappoint unless you plan on printing images over 12"x18". I have not found a better camera for the money anywhere, nor do I think you will. Give this camera a chance....you will be very glad you did.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I did not purchase the D40 from Ritz but would like to share my thoughts with the readers of this review site. The D40 is a great camera overall. It is very easy to use and great pictures can be taken by the most inexperienced users. I have two lenses 18-55 and the 55-200 VR Zoom. Both these lenses do a fine job at taking clear crisp photos. But note,for the best results with the ZOOM lens USE A GOOD TRIPOD.

I have not had any mechanical trouble with the D40. It is a well made camera and the lenses are of equal quality. Here are some shots I took in Vegas. This is all with the D40, NO photo enhancment. I wish I could post more than just two photos. I have some incredible pix.

I purchased this camera along with the 55-200mm non-VR lens about three weeks ago. I have been putting it through its paces in various situations: portraits, sports events and family get togethers. This camera has well and truly exceeded my expectations! The point-and-shoot (full auto) mode is so simple, anyone can take great snaps right out of the box. The manual modes are intuitive and it is very easy to navigate the menus.

While I am using this camera now for portraits, family etc I will eventually hook it up to my telescope and take deep space photos, which I believe this camera will be more then capable of handling.

Superb!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Great for pictures of our 3 dogs and 2 cats in the sport mode (fast moving photos like our dogs running around in our friend's yard and our cats who don't stay still for many pictures). Has many Best Shot modes and of course the Auto mode. Can use different lenses for different subjects. I like how compact it is compared to a lot of other SLR cameras. Yet, it is very strong.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I had a point and shoot digital for the first year of my son's life. The picture quality was ok, not great, but the lag time always caused me to get pictures of the side of his head. :( My brother and sister-in-law had the Nikon D40 and their pictures of their daughter were far superior to mine. This weekend I gave in and purchased the Nikon. BEST PURCHASE I COULD HAVE MADE! What a difference in the pictures of my son. I regret that we didn't get this camera in the first place. (This would be a wonderful gift for new parents or grandparents) We can't wait to use this camera to preserve the memories of the good times we will have this summer.

I have 2 Nikon film cameras and finally went digital. Boy am I glad I did ! I LOVE it. With 7 children and 14 grandchildren I am constantly taking pictures of their birthday parties, soccer, baseball, softball & basketball games etc., etc. Every picture is a treasure, and I have 3 photo printers to help me with all of them. I'm eyeing the Nikon D-80 for my retirement present. I am very impressed with Nikon and will continue to support their products.

From the moment I had this product in my hands, I just couldn't get enough of it! It's one of the best deals around for the quality of photographs you can take. The Nikon D40 body is one of the smallest bodies on the market and it's just what I was looking for. The two lens kit was also what brought me to the product. The two lens are equal in providing that fantastic photo and catching just that right distance. You can't go wrong with this package deal and you surely won't regret it!

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

After growing up with a Pentax Super Program, I embraced the digital age with a point and shoot Canon A40. After four years, I realized I missed the versatility of an SLR. I am kicking myself for waiting so long. This camera is a dream! I wish I had gotten the 18-200 lens instead of the 18-55 and 55-200 pair, however, they are both fantastic and I end up carrying them both with me. Next will be the 12-24 wide angle. The colors are so vibrant in landscapes that I can hardly wait for vacation to really give my D40 a workout. Even on a teacher's salary, this camera is worth saving for.

I've tried several entry-level Digital SLR cameras, and by leaps and bounds have found this to be the best. The controls are intuitive and comfortable, even for my big hands. The image quality with the kit lens is great, and the lens system lends itself to plenty of room for growth. Get a big memory card - you're going to be taking a lot of photographs with this camera!

This is my first digital SLR after 30+ years of using a 35mm SLR. I have used other digital cameras (not SLR) and was never satisfied with the time delay when shooting a picture. I have found that the vivid colors and quick operation of the D40 make using this camera a dream. You will need to spend some time with the manual as it can do everything but cook dinner, and the manual isn't easy to read.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Having been a serious SLR film guy for decades, I had not yet considered going digital until my cousin (who is a pro photographer) handed me one of his cameras (Nikon D80) to try. I knew right then that I had to evolve to digital. Research and glowing comments kept leading me to the Nikon D40 and in the six weeks I have had mine, I have never enjoyed photography so much. Though I have lenses from another manufacturer that would have worked on a competing camera, the design and quality feel of the D40 won out easily. The 6.1MP sensor vs. 10MP is a non-issue for me and has the advantage of less noise at higher ISO's. In general, I could not be more impressed with this package though I did exchange the 55-200mm for the newer VR version. From my perspective, the Nikon D40 is the best deal out there.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

This camera is excellent. My son's christening was Sunday and all day Saturday I was looking for a camera that wouldn't take 5 seconds between shots. I saw the add for the D40 at Ritz and thought I'd try it out. The price was excellent, the salesperson was very nice. I was a very happy customer. Then I went home with my new camera and guess what ... It took AMAZING looking photos right out of the box just using the auto mode. I was SOOOOO excited. After a few days of getting used to the options, I went on the internet and found multiple websites for professional photographers that use this camera. They all gave it great reviews, but a few of them went a step further and shared their preferred setups. In no time at all I was snapping vibrant photos at nearly three shots per second....I'll never miss a smile on my son's face again. Thanks!!!

For an entry level camera this is a incredible unit. It has all the features that most people will ever need and takes great pictures. I've been taking pictures for over 25 years and have had some very good film cameras and a few mediocre digital ones. This tops them all. I can't imagine the need for spending 200 to 1000 dollars more for a "better" camera since this more than meets my needs while taking excellent pictures.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

When I saw the commercial on TV I went to the website to view the pictures others had taken with this camera. I loved that not only were everyday people taking GREAT Pictures, but that it was easy to use, and the auto focus was a Big PLUS. I entered the daily prize give away and won my camera. Had I not won the camera, it is one I would have wanted. I love taking pictures of birds in flight, and nature scenes

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

My ex-husband has the D50 and the pictures left me awed. I was on a more limited budget and shopped around for 6 months and kept coming back to the D40. I am so glad I did! I love the colors and the ease of using this gem! I am currently looking for a decent deal on an 18-300 as I hate carrying around multiple lenses.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I used to do a lot of photography with my FG and N4004 and stopped for a long time. Digital is a whole new experience and the D40 is a great camera to start with. This little gem has many more features than you see in the on line description and is easy to use right from the start. I don't know if it would be as good for pro work but, for the non pro user this rig has it all and then some.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

This is my first DSLR and it beats my old fixed digital hands down. This camera has so many functions that it's almost as good as the pro models and far exceeds the "casual needs". This camera follows the tradition of Nikon quality and function. In fact I have already recommended this model to some friends.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

I bought this as an early birthday present to myself, and it's the best one ever! I decided on the D40 rather than the D40x (convincing myself that I would not be making any massive enlargements or cropping into small areas of a photo) so that I could use the difference in cost for buying accessories. So far, I have only invested in a few filters, but would like to get a speedlight next. If I had to do it over, I would probably buy the camera body & a 18-200mm lens rather than toting around the 18-55mm PLUS the 55-200mm lenses that came in the kit. My next big buy will be the 200-500mm Tamron lens! Overall, it was an excellent buy, and the knowledgable staff [...] made it a snap. Also, the classes they offer have been a great basis for learning.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

This is a terrific camera. I have been looking at cameras for months now and I have always gone back to the D40. I've heard nothing but great things about the D40, but my personal favorite is that I have small children and unlike a regular digital camera, I can take pictures right when the action is actually happening, rather than getting the "after" shot. There is no lag time, so in Auto mode I can keep clicking away. I enjoy the expressions I catch with my children when they run, laugh, and play. It's great because with other cameras I could never catch the actions of the kids running without looking so blurry. With the D40, I can snap a picture of my child running full speed and the detail is wonderful in the picture, from eveything to their hair blowing in the wind, the goofy laughs on their faces and their feet barely touching the ground.
This camera is perfect for me! I am so happy I made the right decision for myself!

I have had this camera about 6 weeks and couldn't love it more! Can't stop taking pictures. I'm boring people always wanting to stop for another shot. Even though I'm a beginner other than point and shoot, I've been able to produce very nice photos and that's thanks to this great camera! Would I buy it again? In a heartbeat!

We brought the d-40 kit the day before we left for Yellowstone National Park. We took over 500 pictures and still had battery life. We took many pictures of the scenery and the wildlife and they all came sharp and colorful. The 55x 200mm
lens was very useful in capturing the wildlife.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

Well to begin with this camera is super, compaired with Cannon, Olympus it's the better buy. Easy modes and easy to learn all the functions. The 2.5 inch display on the rear will take you thru all the features of the camera and even let you know if your setting up in the proper configuration. Made very well and looks professional,it feels great and is a good size to carry around with you on vacations. Some of the other cameras boast higher resolutions but at 6.1 mp you can't go wrong unless your into making poster sized prints. Speaking of prints, that's where this camera zooms, the ease of downloading your shots to your computer then printing will show you the quality that was built into this camera. Nikon didn't skimp on this puppy. Great intro camera for those new to Digital SLR's without spending over a grand.

Comments about Nikon Nikon D40 Digital SLR Two-Lens Outfit (18-55mm f3.5-5.6G/AFS DX 55-200mm F/4-5.6G ED):

This kit is highly recommended for anyone breaking into DSLRs and photography in general. The contains just about everything you need to get you jumpstarted.

The DVD's provide a great overview of the camera and its basic operations. One of the videos goes into some depth for scenario shooting (low light, sports, etc)

It's been about a month now since i've received the camera and I dont think I have put it down since!

The only thing this kit does not contain are SD memory cards, protective filters and a cleaning kit. An oustanding deal!
