Nikon D40 Enroute

With the recent introduction of Nikon's D80 already targeting a larger portion of the mid-range DSLR camera market, the company is now planning to introduce a camera that will target the most basic of DSLR users, according to a product posting listed and since removed by German retailer Neckermann. If accurate, the information reveals that the upcoming D40 would potentially undercut Canon's Digital Rebel XTi as one of the least expensive DSLRs available. The projected specifications would lower the price by limiting the D40 to a 6-megapixel sensor and 3-point focusing as well as strip away the built-in auto-focus motors and dedicated status displays of higher-end models. The compact size of the camera is also expected to dictate the use of SD cards. No launch information was provided by Neckelmann. Full photos of the camera are available after the jump.
