Nikon's 10.2MP D40x can capture lots of detail, as shown by the 100-percent crop of this macro shot of a flower. Since the lens isn't an AF-S or AF-I lens, I had to focus manually, but the results were nice. Shot Details: 60mm f/2.8D AF Micro-Nikkor, f/7.1, 1/800 second, ISO 800, center-weighted average metering.

The D40x's 3-point AF system sometimes makes a mistake. Here it focused on the trees instead of the cute mandarin duck next to them. Shot Details: 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED AF-S VR DX Zoom-Nikkor zoomed to 200mm (300mm equiv.), f/5.6, 1/800 second, ISO 400, Matrix metering.

Trying to capture this duck splashing in the water would be an exercise in frustration if you had to deal with a compact camera's slower shutter lag, but it's a snap with a speedy dSLR like the D40x. Shot Details: 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED AF-S VR DX Zoom-Nikkor zoomed to 135mm (202mm equiv.), f/8, 1/500 second, ISO 400, Matrix metering.

Little Jake might look sceptically at the camera, but the D40x did a nice job of metering this bright outdoor scene with the camera's 3D Color Matrix Metering II. Shot Details: 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED II AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor zoomed to 55mm (82mm equiv.), f/5.6, 1/400 second, ISO 200, Matrix metering.
