    I just abandoned my Canon in favor of a Nikon, and found this board. Before the Canon I had a Minolta DSLR that I loved, and just never developed the same love for the Canon. So far I'm really liking the Nikon. I'm still trying to figure everything out, but these are from the first ten shots with the camera.

    I didn't actually mean to use a flash on this one, it would be much better without the flash glare in her glasses.

    The D40 is a great camera, I wish I still had mine!

    Looks like your first photos are pretty good with the exception of the flash which you already knew, but still... nice job.

    Enjoy

    LOL, yep. I was shunned on the Canon board for even asking about a Nikon. Something about it just feels better to me, I haven't been able to put my finger on it yet. I think it feels a lot more like the Minolta I liked so much.

    Thanks for the nice welcome!

    Really? The Maxxum SLR was my first camera, and the DSLR was my grand splash into the addiction. Maybe the fact that it is what I started with made it more comfortable for me.

    I didn't look at the Sony, I actually traded my Canon to someone who had a Nikon and wanted to go Canon. (So score one for both sides on this one!)

    Heh, that's what I had, the Maxxum HTxi Plus.
    Hated it. I flat out quit taking pictures.
    I found it rather cumbersome to use it manually.
    My first camera was a Canon AE-1. fully manual. I loved it. It made sense.
    My first Digi P&S was a Nikon CoolPix 990, then a Canon PowerShot.
    I am loving my Canon Rebel. I love the layout of the controls. Again, it makes sense.
    Mind you, I read review after review, and just went and bought the Rebel XSi, without even physically looking at any other camera.

    I'd like to know why you didn't like your Canon. I know you can't quite put your finger on it, but I am curious. Was it the feel in your hand, control layout, image quality...?
