>> Interesting features, although I think the 19 Scene Modes is overkill.....
I have a friend/photo client who bought a D40 or D40X on my recommendation (he was looking for something better than his P&S). Last time I talked to him about his camera he told me "that camera takes great pictures until I use something other than the scene modes". He, of course, understands little or nothing about exposure or any of the other intricacies that make up our avocation. He likely doesn't have the time to learn, although he's talked about "some lessons".
I would think that those scene modes would help a shooter like that, totally reliant on the scene modes, which is really the bread and butter of the "low end/entry level market", and I'm sure a feature Nikon uses to drag consumers into better, more advanced cameras (as does any smart marketer).
(I have no idea what all those mores do, I just have a fuzzy idea that are important for a lot of people like my friend, who is not the typical member here)
