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.
