My Nikon D40 SLR Camera

Imagine if engineers were poets. What would they name this thing? "Baby Yellow?" Anyhow. This is the camera I use. It's not fancy but a bottom of the line Nikon D40 SLR - Single Lens Reflex - and a real workhorse. I love it. GG bought it for me after I complained about the other camera he bought me.
"This is a toy. I want a real camera."
The clouds parted and "Baby Yellow" showed up a week or two later.
And Geek Guy, because he really is a geek, has moved on to a Nikon D3oo SLR camera which is what I used to take these photos of my little D40. To tell you the truth? I like the D40.

I have a Kodak Z650. Hopefully someday I'll get to upgrade to an SLR. ;)

Re: Baby - it's small and lightweight compared to the D300 and other makes - important consideration with arthritic wrists.

We used to have an ongoing fight in our house. My wife (National Photographer of the Year 2006, Portraits - Infants to 5-year-olds) used a Nikon D70. I have been using Canon SLRs for 25 years. I thought our fight would be over when she left her job with Lifetouch Studios and had to turn in her Nikon cameras.

When I upgraded from my Canon 30D to my current Canon 50D, I gave my wife my older Canon, thinking it would obliterate any vestige of the old Nikon v. Canon debate. No such luck. She still argues that Nikon is better.

Nice camera - and fantastic photos, as always. The camera means much less than the photographer's vision.
