I received this product as a gift for my sixteenth birthday, and have had an awesome time playing around with it and learning all of the fun extras that are included in it. The Nikon D-40 is an easy to use, digital SLR camera which comes with one lens which has 18-55mm zoom. It produces extremely clear images, and requires little practice to discover the basic settings for amazing photographs. The camera's automatic settings include "Action", "Portrait", "Children", "Auto" and many other options for those impromptu photo shoots. It also has built in camera editing settings, such as crop, black & white, and sepia. It can be used to take action shots, portraits, and landscapes, as well as anything else one can imagine. It is a high speed camera, and is very durable. I have received so many more compliments on my photographs since I swapped my point and shoot camera out for this amazing DSLR camera. Your photography is only limited by your own imagination when it comes to working with this great camera, which makes it ideal for students and photography enthusiasts alike. I highly recommend this camera, and I hope to have it for years to come!
