from a samsung cellphone to our trusty compact panasonic point-and-shoot… we have now upgraded to our very first dslr! woohooOoO! 😀
many thanks to bob for trekking the jungles of hidalgo just to get us our nikon d40. bait mo talaga, bob. 🙂
the first question we’ll probably get is why get a d40? why not a d40x? well, the answer is simple. the extra 5k it would need to get a d40x is not justifiable for us if the only thing we’ll get is extra 4 megapixels. we’d rather keep the cash and get accessories instead. another thing, the d40x is a discontinued model and has been replaced by the d60.
ok, so why not get a d60 instead? for the same reason we chose not to get the d40x. lamang nga lang ang d60 because of the vr kit lens. but still, the price difference vs the added features is still not reasonable for us.
the d80 would’ve been the wiser choice but we’re not as rich as some of our friends (dba nga, vhlad? 😉) so we stuck with d40… and we’re happy with it. 🙂
so expect better photos in the future… in the meantime, basa muna kami ng manual. 😀
we have a new toy
