Get the SB-600 for your usage. The price can be found in the Nikon sub-forum.
SB-600 : $340
SB-400 : $190 - $205.
The SB-600 is slightly more powerful and able to swivel around. The SB-400 is only able to swing up to 90 degrees upwards.
haha, my friends all use better cameras and i can't share lenses with them cos the D40X is only limited to AFs lenses. thanks for the pricing. i'll try to persuade my mom to get me the sb600. haha.
Dun feel demoralise for your current camera and it is so much better than pns and prosumer cameras.

Stop blaming the camera that your mum bought you, you should show some appreciation and gratefulness instead of complaining that she is unwilling to buy you a new one.
Like some already mentioned, better camera don't always mean better photos, even if your mum used all her wealth to get you the world best and more professional camera, if you are not good at the basic photography skills, you still will not be able to produce a good photo. Do you think just take the expesnive camera and aim any where, and wo la, the pro photo come out?
A price winning photo don't just come from professional or good and expensive cameras, but come from the man who have years of experiences and skills, and put in lots of effort to learn.
It's still the man behind the camera that counts, the camera only help you to do certain tasks easier.
probably u can take good photos wif ur present camera and show her, and then persuade her to buy a even a better one for even a better picture? hahaha
time to close this thread to prevent any unhappiness. got my answer - sb600. thanks all for those who helped.
alright, thanks for the advise. it's encouraging to see this forum so active - even a mere remark can bring about so much 'tidal waves'. thanks for all the advise.!
I wished I could get a gift of a D40.
Just yesterday I was at All Watches Lucky Plaza.
Overheard a mother telling the sales staff, wanting to buy a Tag Heuer for her one & only daughter. Tempted to ask the mother if her daughter got a BF or not. Ha ha!
