    I read about it for the last month and decided it seems like thats a good newb dslr to get.

    So I purchased one today, stock lense, 4gb card, and protective bag. Found out a few things but obviously theres still tons of things I need to know.

    Can anyone point me out to good links that can help me out? D40 specificly?

    Or if you have a d40 and dont mind being asked retarded questions and helping, my aim is Pennythug13, and my msn is Chris-L33T@Hotmail.com, I appreciate any help :]

    And as a small introduction, I am Chris Juliano, I live in Pennsylvania and I am 17 in a month. I would like to get into photography so I decided to join this forum.

    Thanks.

    Hi Chris
    Congrats on your new purchase and welcome on the forum. I have D40 and it is really great camera.
    If you want to fond out more about photography you should get "Understanding Exsposure". That's good start book. Aslo search button on this forum works great :)
    I hope you will enjoy photography and I wish to see samples of your work.
    Regards
    Tom

    I also have a D40 and love it. I also love my 200mm zoom! I'm still learning too but have already figured out a lot of information so ask away!

    Thanks, I appreciate it, my one online friend helped me out learning 1 thing about using "M" mode. So if you guys have aim or msn please message me and teach me more.

    Or if there is a good website you know, link me too it if you want.


    Here are some pics of mine, All are photoshopped :)[) and only the first one was taken with a d40 (my first pic I ever took with d40), and the rest are from my old P&S.

    Well yes I will be using less photoshop as I get better.

    I know how to resize pics but I thought they were all resized already :[

    And all others are from my p&s so I didnt expect them to be that good.

    what photo hosting site do you use?
    use flickr. because when uploaded it gives you a broad range of sizes goign from thumbnails to large images to be posted on websites/forums such as these.
