Well basically im looking for a good Beginners Camera because id like to get into photography away from using point and shoot camera's. im most likely gonna get pretty serious about my photo's too. well im looking for something pretty good yet under or around $500 what id be taking pictures of is kinda what youd find in a national geographic magazine.. which also means it varies...but mostly people and places and Nature hopefully something thats a DSLR... i was wondering if the nikon D40 would do the trick for me? since its cheap and seems to have good reviews but the reviews also state it as a good "family camera" or "moms" camera. any one got any ideas on what could fit my needs?
