Hi all First post here I have always been a 35mm SLR guy and a few years back (ok more than a few) gave it up for the ease and instant gratification of Digital. Until now I could not afford a good DSLR (and still really cannot) I'm really a novice with the point and shoot (Kodak 10mp) I keep salt water aquariums and and have been trying for years to get a good macro with a point and shoot. I always have WB issues and over/under saturation. After much research I (think) I have decided on a Nikon D40. It seems it will do everything I want and then some. I would light a higher mp but 6.1 is more than acceptable. I am really hoping to fine one (body only) in the $150 to $200 range If you have one please PM me. I have seen them selling in the mid 300's with lens(s) and accessories. Please feel free to suggest other "entry level" cameras. Here is what I will use this camera for. A few pics with my point and shoot. taken with a point and shoot And a pic of my aquarium I'm very proud of it.
