  1. Which camera to buy?

    Feb 12, 2009

    Since childhood I have been fascinated by cameras but could never afford one till my professional independence.
    I pledged during college days that my first salary would be invested in a good camera.

    Point & Shoot or DSLR?
    The first camera which I laid my eyes upon was Canon Powershot SX1 IS but its launch in India quite disappointed me, it came with a huge price tag of 36995/- INR. Then I started searching web for more options and gradually came to know that a DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) camera is what a serious amateur photographer needs. The biggest advantage a DSLR offers over Point & Shoot is the flexibility of lenses(i.e you can select lens according to your need).

    Nikon D40:
    I was looking for a DSLR suiting my budget and finally decided to go for Nikon D40.
    It's merely three days since I bought this camera and I'm literally in love with it.
    Nikon D40 kit comes with body, 18-55m lens, battery, charger & Nikon strap.
    The things I liked about D40 are:
    Great kit lens: An 18-55mm lens covers most of my general needs.

    Great feel: The advantage any Nikon camera offers over any other brand is the feel it gives in your hand.

    Great Image quality: Nikon D40 comes with 6.1 Megapixel sensor which disappoints many buyers but the real thing is that Megapixel is related to the image size and not the image quality.

    Small size: Nikon D40 does not have a giant looking body like that of a camera in any professional studio. Rather it can be easily carried in a normal V-shaped bag.

    Pocket Friendly: One of the best thing about Nikon D40 is that it comes within budget and it is always better to invest in good lenses than to invest in a costly camera body.

    And finally it's the technique and knowledge that makes great images and not the camera.
    So now onwards I'll frequently post images taken with my Nikon D40 over this space.

      Good to see back. So now are you going to be regular at this or go back into hibernation again?

      Nikon D40 is definitely a good choice and so is Canon Rebel XSI :-)
