Nikon D40x - Test Shots - Full Res Crops

A range of test shots are shown over the next two pages. Here, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and in some case a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it in order for you to gain an appreciation of the overall quality.

I try to take the same test shot with every DSLR, for a more useful comparison. Unfortunately it was a bit hazy when i took this, but not too much to guage the level of detail.

Despite the haze, the high level of detail in this full-res crop is still visible. Compare this with my other 10MP DSLR reviews. Look particularly at the window frames on the hotel.

The D40x does a particularly excellent job with close ups, focusing quickly despite the close range.

This is a full-res crop from the above image. The detail and colour are stunning.

The kit lens supplied with the D40x is surprisingly good, better than most basic standard zooms, producing very little distortion at wide angle.

/94/a548ed/5f25/4435-NikonD40xtele.jpg

This was shot at full zoom on the 18-55mm lens....

----

/94/a9bfa1/1c4d/4435-NikonD40xwide.jpg

...while getting closer but using the wide end of the range produces this effect.

----

/94/d791a4/4750/4435-NikonD40xwidecrop.jpg

This is a crop from the corner of the wide-angle shot above, showing the excellent corner sharpness and lack of distortion.
