    It's seams like my D40 gets an unusual amount of noise in shadows, here's a sample.

    [​IMG]
    1/25 f/2.8 ISO200

    Has anyone else noticed this, is it normal?

    Shadows or low light conditions? Crank on the ISO, 400, 600? Increase length of exposure...

    Although the D40 may not be able handle noise as good as others, but underexpose an image will introduce noise to it. If you have the image expose correctly, you may not notice the noise.

    I don't see much noise in that picture. What I do see is that it is terribly under exposed

    Noise is usually more apparent in shadowy areas and it really comes out when you use software to brighten the image. So the best thing you can do to avoid noise (besides keeping your ISO low) is to avoid underexposing the image. A good technique is 'Expose to the Right'.
