    Smile I bought my camera

    After spending hours looking and trying the different cameras, I bought the Nikon D60, it seemed to be the perfect fit in my hand and had most of the features I was looking for in my price range. It came with the Nikkor 18-55 VR lens. I also purchased the Nikkor 55-200 mm VR. I really wanted the 18-200 VR lens but couldn't swing the price . All I need now is to figure out how everything works, so I can take it off auto mode

    Congratulations on your new camera, Connie! I just ordered a new one too, maybe we can learn together. I never did get brave enough to take my last camera off auto. Have fun!

    Lynnie, congrats on your new camera, we are going to have a blast learning together, and just maybe with the help of all the wonderful people here we will both be able to take our cameras off auto.

    Oh, you're gonna love it! I rememeber when I bought the Nikon D50, almos two years ago and my life changed.... well, at least when it came to my photography!
    Study the manual and get a good book on digital photography. AND go out and shoot shoot shoot - it's the only way to learn!

    Congrats & enjoy it! I used to teach photography classes (continuing education through the local parks/rec district) before I had my daughter. If you have questions please feel free to email me & I'll do my best to help! I can't promise total expertise, lol, but I'll do what I can!

    And of course I know there are TONS of great photographers here, which can be easily seen from looking at all the fab LO's. So there are many people who can help, I'm sure!
