When you are in the market for a new digital camera, it can become very overwhelming. This is mainly because there are literally thousands of various models to choose from. One great way to limit your search, is to know exactly what type of features you are looking for. Do you want a point-and-shoot camera? Or would you like a digital SLR? Well, if you are looking for an SLR camera, than you’re in luck because Nikon has just released one of the nicest digital SLR’s available, and the best part is that the average price for this camera is around $600.00. I am talking about the Nikon 6.1-MegaPixel Digital SLR Camera, Model: D40.
Some of the features this camera will give you includes a special, high-resolution Image Processing Engine, which gives you stunning image quality and a crispness that will have everyone thinking you had a professional photographer shoot your picnic. This engine comes with the Nikon DX-format RGB CCD that has an effective resolution of 6.1-MegaPixels. Basically, this just further backs my statement of amazing image quality. And, when you’re wanting to look at these beautiful pictures you just took all o you have to do is glance at the back of the camera and view them on the 2.5″ TFT-LCD monitor, that has three display options. Also, this monitor comes with the BriteView clear matte focusing screen, which means your images will look perfect even on your camera’s monitor.
Another great features is the option for you to edit your pictures directly from your camera. With the in-camera edition menu you can instantly have perfect images. This is one of the coolest features, because if you need to print the photo’s out immediately and don’t have enough time to fine-tune them on your computer, you can do it directly on the camera. Also, if you are expecting to be using this camera during high-action moments, than you definitely won’t be disappointed. This camera comes with an amazing continuous shooting mode, which can capture images up to 2.5fps (frames per second). This is perfect for when you are shooting sports or going camping. Now, you will never miss another moment because your camera is too slow.
There is also a great feature that many cameras have, however, it has been altered slightly. This camera comes with an electronic self-timer. But, many cameras have this, so what makes it so special? This timer can have a duration from 2 seconds all the way to 20 seconds. I have always used the timer option, and its great that you can have a duration all the way up to 20 seconds. Now, you and all of your friends have ample amount of time to “prep” for the picture.
There is also a built-in Speedlight flash that has a TTL flash control. This will ensure that you pictures never look washed out or “white” looking. You will always have a great picture with this camera, which is why I am so adamant about it. And when you want to upload your pictures into your computer, you can do so in a snap. This is made possible with the USB 2.0 interface and A/V outputs. There is even a direct-print option, which if you connect this camera to any PictBridge-enabled printer, you can immediately print your pictures.
If you are in the market for a digital SLR camera, than you definitely have many options. Some of these cameras can be up to several thousand dollars. However, like I said earlier, this camera is only around $600.00. With a camera that is priced this well, there is no reason why anyone can’t have breathtaking pictures. Remember your past in style with this Nikon Digital SLR.
