Compact and lightweight
Only 475g in weight, the D40 fits comfortably in your hand and features a well-balanced design and grip to ensure easy access to controls.

This advanced autofocus system features three focus areas that can be individually controlled. Whether you are at the beach, the football field or an amusement park, the D40 will focus quickly and accurately.

Large, bright 2.5-inch LCD monitor

8 Digital Vari-Programs
Automatically optimize the camera settings to produce great results in any condition. Selections include Auto Flash Off, Portrait, Landscape, Child, Sports, Close-up and Night Portrait. Simply rotate the mode dial to your preferred choice, or select the completely automatic AUTO mode and let the D40 take care of it all.

Nikon’s exclusive built-in i-TTLflash technology
Ensures that the D40 always provides the right light — even in backlit situations. The camera evaluates the scene and calculates the ideal lighting before you take each and every shot. No extra buttons, no complicated procedures.

Near-instant 0.18s start-up time
Ready in 0.18 seconds after camera on, the D40 empowers you with the speed to act on the spur of the moment.

2.5 fps continuous shooting
Capture subtle movements in a split second with Continuous Shooting Mode. With the ability to take up to 100 action shots at approx. 2.5 frames per second, the D40 is able to capture it all, even when the action is fast.

200 – 1600 ISO broad sensitivity range
Lets the camera create beautiful images in challenging low-light situations without using a flash. Sensitivity can be manually boosted to a HI-1 setting for those special occasions that call for even higher sensitivity.

Easy-to-use Retouch Menu
Makes it simple to edit and enhance your pictures in the camera. The range of image enhancements includes several colour filter effects and black-and-white or sepia tones, as well as image technologies such as Red-Eye Fix and D-Lighting.
