New Camera - Nikon D40x




DH found a new (refurbished) camera and he practiced on our perfect subject matter!
I love the camera - clarity in the picture and better shots of AA's movement and expressions. Anyone have a camera like this one? Any tricks to it?

We will be checking it out more this weekend!
Have a great one!

Good luck learning your new camera looks like it already takes great pictures

Have a great weekend

As always, your pictures look great! Don't know anything about cameras to help answer any questions. But, seriously, I think you could take pictures with a disposable camera and have great pictures. It's not always the camera, but the subject of interest :)

AA just gets prettier and prettier if that's even possible!

In regard to the WS barbie, you could probably still get yours. I just had to email them the dates we stayed and our room number (it was on our receipt) and they were able to charge the shipping to my credit card. If you want one, it really wasn't too much trouble and only ended up costing about $18 in shipping which is quite a bit cheaper than you pick them up on ebay or whatever.

Just a thought!

All pictures off AA are so cute, I'm sure the camera does not matter...I'm shopping around for a new one too. Heard good things about that one. Best of luck, and be sure to post how you like it.

I don't know a lot about cameras, but I sure do think that AA is the cutest!

Just when I thought Miss AA couldn't get any cuter...we see her beauty much more clearly! Wow.

Have fun learning your camera.

Good luck. Myself? I'm a little "camera-challeneged" and stick to the point and shoot type myself, so I can't help.

Kind regards from Miami,

Carol and Taylor

Oh nice camera... I must say that I see a camera and I get excited :) I am SO in love with my Rebel XSi... it is like a 2nd arm...
Do you have a Flickr site? You will have to let me know... I must say that AA is looking like she has grown and I see her hair is longer...
Sorry it has been a while since visiting... life has been crazy...

I have a Nikon D80 so yours might have similar features. We should get together after Easter and do a photoshoot while the kids play. I'll show you some tips that someone else taught me. To get some idea of what the possibilities are go to http://blumephotography.com/blog/
