Nikon D40 DSLR
And so i have treated myself to a DSLR. Nikon D40 it is.
The D40 comes with a stock 18-55 lens. (The above picture was taken with a 18-200 lens).
However, the real "treat" part is when i treat myself to a 18-200 lens (which is currently quite rare and expensive to get !).
The above shot was taken with the stock 18-55 lens.
And here are some sample pictures taken with the 18-55 lens. I am yet to figure out the controls completely. But, yes, the camera rocks !
I was unable to get some real "dangerous close up" (Where you thrust your lens as close as possible to the object) shots. It could also be due to the fact that I did not find out the right setting. I should try that too, and would be doing it over the next few days.
Denizens of Monterrey, Mexico, beware. You now have a shutterbug on the prowl ;-)
PS: I had initially planned to get the D80, but then the cost overrun was just too much to handle ! After all, at some point of time, i need to balance my wallet too ;-)
PPS: No, i did not use photoshop/gimp on them. I have absolutely no idea about image conversion tools anyway !
