New Camera!

So I am SO excited that I got to open my Christmas present early because it's a new Nikon D40x!!!! Ok, so I didn't get the D80... I went to look at it and felt like it was too bulky to be my first digital SLR ever. So I got the D40x because it's also 10.2 Megapixels and it has auto mode, which is helpful for me as a photography newbie. I got an really great lens, though (the 18-200mm with VR) so I don't have to keep switching lenses.

Ok, can you all tell how excited I am? I already took 50 pictures of Kubrick with it! I'm not very good at all, and I have yet to read the manual, so bear with me, but I was SO HAPPY because you can actually SEE his colors in the pictures! I mean, he doesn't look like a blob of color, you can see the cream/black/blonde mixture really well!

Here are five of my favorites. I know they're not wonderful pictures, and the white balance is off and I probably could have used a different ISO, but these are probably the best pictures I have ever taken of Kubrick so I'm over the moon happy with this camera so far!

Oh and did I mention I love my future hubby for getting me this camera for Christmas AND letting me have it early?

The last pic is of Kubrick mid-shake. I thought it looked pretty awesome so I added it.

Thanks Melissa! I'm looking forward to having fun with the camera too!

Diane, it's not the picture, it's the camera, I swear.

Ryan, you crack me up! You actually can see his nose in the picture so it's his face. LOL. The high res original is a lot more clear than the one I had to size down for the forum, so I guess I forgive you...

Well, Lina..if this is just practice, I can't wait to see your photos after you've got all of the whizzies down!

I had bought a new digital when we went to Germany a few years ago and I made the mistake of leaving it visible in one of my open bags at the check out desk. Now I wouldn't have guessed that anyone would steal it, (I'm too trusting) as there was no one around and it was a very nice hotel. I left my husband standing there and walked away to find COFFEE...I was only gone a minute and when I returned my husband had just wandered a few feet away (there was still no one around) and my camera was gone! (I did not discover this until we had already left on the trian) The real bummer was that we were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and ALL of our trips photos were on it!
