I just ordered my first DSLR, a Nikon D40. I know it's an old model and all, but I got it for a really good price and it came with the 18-55 lens, 55-200mm vr lens, tripod, camera bag, and a 16GB memory card! I plan on upgrading by the end of the year when I know a little more about photography, which is why I joined this forum! :D
Welcome. I think it's a fine camera to learn on. Got mine last year for the same reasons. Lots of good info here.

If I had it to do over I'd do the following: 1. read the manual first :)
2. learn about the exposure triangle
3. understand white balance
4. understand the exposure meter so I could shoot in manual asap (it's more fun)

And check out camerasim.com if you haven't already.
I will definitely read the manual. I don't know ANYTHING about stuff like this. I really can't wait to learn though. Just checked out camerasim.com and it's pretty fun just messing around with the ISO and stuff. Thanks man!
Nice! Maybe you can teach me some tricks sometime!
