The Nikon D40x

I have been wanting a nice, professional camera for a while now. I have around seven hundred dollars--but am looking for one in the two hundred-five hundred dollar range.
At first, I thought I would buy a Nikon D40. This camera looked perfect for me. I was disappointed it didn't have movie, but that didn't put me off.
But before I made any final decisions, I decided to go to a professional photograph site where it listed the top twenty DSLR cameras (voted so by readers/photographers). The Nikon D40 was fifth. But then I caught wind of the Nikon D40x, which was a lot more appealing to me. It was a re-make of the Nikon D40, and improved on it a lot (in my opinion).
So has anybody bought either camera? If so, which one is better?

Either of those two? No. I do have a Nikon Coolpix S61 though. I am able to take some nice photos with it, but not quite professional quality. I'd love to be able to help... But seriously, I don't know. When we want really good pictures, we ask my Dad... Sorry! :/

I don't have a lot of experience with Nikons (I'm a Canon person, myself), but the D40x looks great.

Just so you know, until recently, it wasn't even possible for a DSLR to have video capabilities.

I don't have either of those, but I Do have a Nikon CoolpixP90. It's pretty good, but that's me. LOL!

Just saying! LOL! I think the second one SOUNDS better....which ever one you want!

Does the Nikon D4X have video?

I have a D60, the next step up, and I LOVE it. I'd like a D5000 someday, but for now I'm content. :)

Oh yay...cameras. I have no experience with Nikon, though just recently I was looking at those very ones, and they both look good. I have a Canon Rebel XT, and I LOVE it! You might just keep looking around for reviews and see what you can come up with. :)

Hope you have an awesome weekend!
Love,

Hi Bekah. As Abigail mentioned we're Canon Rebel xt-ers. :) Abigail bought my XT and I upgraded a little to the XTi. We love them - but I've heard the Nikon is also a great camera. You might watch ebay - I just got a killer deal on mine.

I can't believe you're only 12! Nope - don't believe it. You seem so much older than that - well, at least a few years older.

Hope you're having a nice Sunday.
