Great pictures used to require complicated and cumbersome equipment along with years of experience. Not any more. The D40 is compact, lightweight and designed specifically for ease of use, yet contains top-quality, high-performance technologies that you expect from a Nikon digital SLR. And with world-famous Nikkor lenses, you know you have a sharp and reliable optical performance. All in a camera light enough to carry with you everywhere. Beautiful photography has never been easier.
