On March 29, Nikon will release the D40x, an upgraded version of its popular D40 entry-level digital SLR. The new camera captures higher-resolution images than the D40, and has improved metering and colour balance.

The D40x has a 10.2-megapixel sensor that allows it to capture images at up to 3,872-x-2,592 pixels in size, which allows them to be printed at 300dpi at A3+. Nikon's 3D Colour Matrix Metering technology improves the accuracy of exposure settings, according to the company, while the Auto White Balance function delivers natural colours.

On the back of the D40x is a 2.5-inch LCD screen, which allows users to manipulate images in the camera if they so wish. The D-Lighting function improves underexposed areas by creating a copy of the an image with added detail in the shadows, while an anti-red-eye function is also built in. The D40x also features eight Digital Vari-program

The D40x costs £510 plus VAT with the new 3x 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S FX lens. The new lens is fitted with an ED glass element, which makes it easier to capture images with higher resolution and high contrast, and a Silent Wave Motor for quiet and smooth auto-focusing, according to Nikon. The D40x does not replace the D40, which will continue to be sold.
