Finally our new Nikon D40 arrived!
I took the first shot while Fix read up on the features. Susi had given me a tutorial before she left on her trip so I've got to teach Fix what I know.
Thus far we haven't ventured too far out of the automatic setting, but the pictures are already drastically improved! Look at the clarity on that banana!
Look at the depth of field! (And listen to me saying "depth of field!)
Look at the eyebrows raised in delight!
Look at the laying-on-the-floor-sweeping-technique! No, we don't understand it either.

I'm more partial to the raised eyebrows than the depth of field.

Yay! It is SUCH a wonderful difference, isn't it?! Just think how many stressful moments and wrinkles you will be spared now that you don't have to labor for 25 minutes to get the picture you want of Rock! It will be so worth it! :)

canon's clunky counter-intuitiveness has got nothing on nikon's smooth-sailing, picture-taking beauty. by the way, rachel, how's it working for you? did you know you can fix red-eye on the camera itself before you upload the pics off the SD card? you can actually do a fair bit of photo editing on the camera itself, and works really well. the only thing is it saves it as a new file.
