    Hi guys :wavey:

    I've been saving up for a while to buy me a DSLR and I decided to pull the trigger on a D80 because D40/D60 was way too small... and I'm a Nikon fan just because, maybe since my friend has a D70s and got to play around with it. This is my first DSLR.:bigthumb:

    I've been messing around with Manual mode :noes: and it's hard. :hs:

    Here's a pic I took. Blurry because I can't hold the camera steady to save my f'ing life.

    I guess I'll be real busy this weekend, learning how to use the camera and learning about exposure and all that good stuff. :bowdown:

    I'm ordering the D80 next week, with the 18-55mm VR. I'm ordering from Shopsunshine.com unless any of you guys know of any better deals or places? This bundle is going to cost me around 700.

    Don't buy from there, bunch of crooks. B&H, Adorama, or BuyDig.com

    Yeah, the dog's eye is fine. His skin is normally pinkish.

    I bought it from B&H, with the 18-135. Came out to just uner 750.
    I've looked around and B&H seemed the cheapest and I knew they were very reputable so I just bought it from them. :cool:

    As for the D700, maybe in a year or so. :noes:

    I can't tell if he's serious or if he's making a "noise" joke about Nikons:o

    it was a joke.

    But if I could afford nice Nikon glass, I might switch just to be elite.

    if you're serious PM me, I've got a D80 with 18-55 lens (not the VR version) and 2 Sandisk 4GB SDHC cards for cheaper than that.
