New Digital SLR Camera

Recently, my wife and I purchased a digital SLR Nikon D40 camera. We figured it was about time to start taking more quality photos, and we were tired of the point ‘n click ‘n wait-for-it cameras. The Nikon D40 is a 6.1 megapixel camera, and we bought it with the 18-50mm lens and the 50-200mm lens. It isn’t the newest model on the market, but because of that we found it at a pretty good price on Amazon.

I uploaded photos from our maiden voyage to the Wild Animal Park, and you can check them out at our photo gallery. The photos from San Francisco were not taken with the D40, but with our ol’ Powershot A510, so keep that in mind.

Edit: I moved our photo gallery to a Picasa gallery: http://picasaweb.google.com/mattlpbeckman
