Nikon D40

I have been looking on DSLRs for the past few weeks, and finally settled on this sucker…

This will be my first non point and shoot and I am pretty excited, yet somewhat intimidated. It will be a shame to purchase such an expensive set up and shoot in AUTO mode only …

So now I need to learn what all these settings really mean, but in the end … it will be me to capture the actual photo irregardless of the settings.


Now that I am back from vacation, I figured out a workaround. Basically if you close it back 1/2 way and then it pops open again, then it registers that it’s open. Well time to call Nikon warranty department. This sucks after 2 months and that I bought this camera specifically for this vacation!


Flash stopped working. UGH!! Basically it pops up but eveytime I press the shutter it tries to open it again. Basically it’s not registering that’s it’s already open and the Flash doesn’t work. Sucks when you are on vacation.
