Boy do I have a lot to learn

But I was compelled to get out there bright and early this morning to practice a little more with my Nikon. I really don't like that the flash pops up even outdoors on the D60 because the default is 100 vs. 200 on the other cameras. I'm going to have to find a work around. Check back with me in about a year, I might be better by then. Guess who else needs a bath today.

Those are very nice pictures Geri! I was all ready to buy a Nikon D40 on Friday night---but when I held it in my hand and tried to goof with it in the store(attached to those tethers and alarms) it just didn't seem like it was for me. It is a huge adjustment from a point and shoot,but I just do not see why they have that nice big viewing area---yet you can not use it to take a photo?(That's what the kid told me)....he said you have to use the viewfinder......it was like umph yuk.......and I was done! Is this true????

Julie,

You'll get used to it. All SLRs use the viewfinder to the best of my knowledge. I almost bought a Canon years ago and it was the same. You'd be surprised how quickly you'll get comfortable with it. As for the bulk of the camera, it's definitely different for me, but I kind of like it It feels substantial. There is a lot to learn but I'm amazed already when I look at a blade of grass and feel as if I can touch it.

You're a wonderful photographer whatever camera you use.

I know I want a better camera,but I was just disappointed and maybe I'm just out of my league or I'm just not around enough of them to find out if I'd love one...I love everyone's photos so much!!!! It is a huge investment for me....and I want to make sure I just love,love,love it!!! I am looking at a Sony Alpha 300 and also another point and shoot...but a new one just out.....the Nikon Coolpix P80...the zoom on it sounds just awesome to me!(I'm a zoom person--and 18x zoom,is exciting)

"he said you have to use the viewfinder"
Yes Julie it is true and I heard it is that way with all DSLR's.
Gerri I love all the detail in your photos

Sally,((Oliver)) Comet and Pennie too!

Julie,

If I were you I wouldn't rush into anything. Don't buy just to buy if you're confused. Your photos are wonderful exactly as is. If, in the future you feel ready to make a change, do it then.

I was thrilled with the price....and the specials.....but we don't have a photography place or I'd be in there trying and handling them all! I was pretty sure the camera I wanted was the same one you got Geri......but I've never seen one in person...only on-line. Part of it too is those obnoxious things they have cameras attached to so people don't steal them. Geez....you can't even turn the 2 fancy cameras on that our Sears store has--they had to remove the batteries and have the lenses strapped on like something I have never seen. It makes it very difficult to want to buy one. You know? These cameras at Sears are over 600.00......I can not imagine someone coming in to purchase a new camera and buying one they can not actually hold,turn on,and try. Is it that way there as well?
