Photography has always been a sort of hobby for me. I'm eagerly awaiting a D40 right now, simply because my old camera broke. I thought about the D60, but 10.2 mp seemed a little unneeded. I have yet to find a reason why anything more than 8mp is even helpful.

I love Photography... It's my dad's hobby and I got hooked too ^_^
I think Canon Cameras are the best...

There are 2 reasons why I'd pick the D60 over the D40, besides the megapixel count. The first is the fact that it has a dust-air reduction system by incorporating a self-cleaning sensor and an airduct system. For photographers, like me, this means a lot in reducing the number of times I have to clean the sensor after changing lenses. It might not be a big deal, but any little thing helps.

The second is the D-lighting feature that is included in the D60 that helps compensate for overblown highlights. This is an excellent in-camera correctional feature that gives you HDR like-quality images without the hassle of having to take multiple exposures, or having to post-process them in a photo editing software.

Plus, the price of the D60 is similar to that of the D40X, to boot, so you're buying more than just megapixels, when you look at it that way.

(plus, megapixels don't mean much... I'd go for the above reasons.)

Not that I'm being bitchy, or anything, but this thread is for discussing photography, not for posting your works.

I like my camera, and feel I need a new one but I have other stuff I want. My dad is a photography freak. He's in to Nikon too. If I can find out what camera he uses I'll post on here.

I really enjoy my 40d, I wish I had a telephoto to snap some pics of the Lunar Eclipse last night. Canon recently announced the new 12MP Rebel Xsi 450d. I think the entry level market has just been one-upped :P. You can check out a extensive write-up here: http://www.dpreview.com/news/0801/08012403canoneos450d.asp

I really love photography but I'm not passionate about it. It would be nice to go full-out and by a professional camera but they are expensive. I just use my digital camera, works just as fine. I just mess with the effects a little. =)

I just started to take an interest in photography .
The stuff you can do with a camera is amazing .
I`m going to take a photography course in my
high school so that I`m more educated on this .

That's nice to hear. If ever you need any tips on photography, just feel free to ask me. I've already taught several people the basics of photography, and I'm happy to say that they're getting really good... one is already considerably surpassing me...

^ I have a question

How do I take a picture of an object that is in the white snow?
The photograph that I took looks unbalanced in a way.

Remember that snow is white...

Therefore, it takes very little before it will get exposed. If you set your camera to expose based on the object in the snow, you'll end up getting the object against a white background... expose to the snow and you might underexpose the object of interest.

For this situation, I'd opt to use a speedlight with a softbox filter to help light up the object, while softly lighting the snow, to prevent overexposure. Using direct flash may create harsh shadows against the snow, so I don't recommend you do that.

If you don't have the equipment to do this, you're better off simply exposing to the object, but move your exposure compensation to, perhaps, -0.3 or -0.7 EV. This may help to balance the exposure, a bit better than your camera's fixed settings.

In addition, set your exposure metering to point metering, so the camera exposes to the object in the snow.

Wow, how did you know all of this? Is it from experience or from a course?
thank you thank you. I will try your method next time.
