I'm new to SLR photography but have taken pictures most of my life. I want to learn a lot about taking better pictures and have started to toy with my little P&S digital with some good results, but wanted MORE control over what I could do... Sooooo

I recently purchased a nice N8008 in eBay for $15 plus shipping and just got the first two rolls developed. All I can say is this looks to be one very nice camera for the price!!!! The shots taken in the Pd mode were fantastic! And the few shots I tried to take at night were pretty doggone good for someone who doesn't know a lot about f-stops and shutter speeds. It came with a 28-70mm lens and I can see no flaws whatsoever. Only a couple of dust spots on the viewfinder that I thought might be on the mirror. My local camera shop told me to bring it in and they would give it a look-see and clean the viewfinder for free and check everything out.

I'm looking forward to using this little baby. Bought a SB-18 flash unit to go with it for taking pics of my 16 mo granddaughter. The first shots of her from this weekend are pretty nice!!

This is one camera that I think I can learn a lot about SLR photography and can't beat the investment for sure!!! Of course, Ol' Santy has a D40 on his sleigh headed for Missouri this month, but that's a different story...
