Nikon D40 vs Sony Alpha DSLR-A200.


I'm not sure whether to buy Nikon d40 or Sony Alpha DSLR 200(if i wish i've enuff 'wang emass'). I read the review..it seems that both have pros and cons..Let's check it outtt...

Nikon D40

The Nikon D40 is an all new affordable, compact, point-and-shoot digital SLR from Nikon, it follows on from the D50 but at a significantly lower price point and with a subtly different feature set. The biggest news however is probably fact that Nikon resisted the temptation to keep chasing megapixels (hooray for that) and instead appear to have concentrated on what makes a good camera, a decent viewfinder, short shutter lag, very short viewfinder blackout. They've trimmed some of the 'less important features' (you can't change the exposure steps for example) but have squeezed a range of new features such as custom Auto ISO which we welcomed with the D80.


The a (alpha) 200 or DSLR-A200 features upgrades influenced by the recently-introduced, enthusiast-class DSLR-A700 camera and replaces the former Sony DSLR-A100 model, which was Sony’s first model in the dSLR category.

The DSLR-A200 is designed to be faster, lighter and easier to use. Upgraded features include a wider, 2.7-inch Clear Photo LCD screen for easy playback viewing, a more compact body and an easily-accessible mode dial, an easy-to-use function menu (camera function display), improved noise control for higher quality images, 1.7x faster AF speed than the DSLR-A100, improved predictive control performance, quieter shutter sound, automatic pop-up flash, and a battery life indicator that displays the percentage of battery life remaining.

As seen in all a (alpha) camera bodies, the DSLR-A200 camera incorporates Super SteadyShot image stabilization in the body to allow shooting at shutter speeds of 2.5 to 3.5 steps slower than otherwise possible – a benefit realized with every compatible lens attached to the camera. Compatible lenses encompass all Minolta Maxxum mount lenses, in addition to Sony a (alpha) lens lineup - including Carl Zeiss lenses.

With its 10.2-megapixel (effective) APS CCD image sensor, the DSLR-A200 camera continues to offer high-quality images. Clean, reduced- noise signals are sent from the image sensor to Sony’s BIONZ™ processing engine, which processes picture information at high speeds and reduces picture noise in the RAW data stage before in-camera JPEG conversion. The results are high-resolution, detailed images with rich tonal reproduction. The DSLR-A200 model supports JPEG and RAW file formats. It has a slot for CompactFlash™ Type I/II media cards, and there is an adaptor for Memory Stick Duo™ media cards sold separately as an accessory.

Honestly, if u are looking for easy camera to play with, i would suggest u to buy Sony ALPHA 200. But if u are deep looking into photography,Nikon D40 will be the answer
