    Default Why is D40 is starting to be in demand again??

    I just noticed in the bns section that the d40 has been in-demand again.Before that its hard to find someone opening a ad to buy a d40.Any specific reasons why is it that they are not going for d60?

    Cheap, because a brand new D60 retails for $900+, so a 2nd hand D40, could be priced dirt cheap

    I agree that it is a tempting idea, but wouldn't it be
    more forwarding looking in terms of advancement in your
    photography pursue to upgrade to a mid-range DSLR
    instead of staying there at the entry level stage.

    Both the D40 and the D5000 are entry level DSLR.

    * Ken Rockwell's camera has similar settings to ours, except his are: P[erfect] Av[Awesome Priority Tv[Totally Awesome Priority] M[ajestic]

    * Ken Rockwell doesn't color correct. He adjusts your world to match his.

    * Sure, Ken Rockwell deletes a bad photo or two. Other people call these Pulitzers.

    * Ken Rockwell doesn't adjust his DOF, he changes space-time.

    * Circle of confusion? You might be confused. Ken Rockwell never is.

    * Ken Rockwell doesn't wait for the light when he shoots a landscape - the light waits for him.

    * Ken Rockwell never flips his camera in portrait position, he flips the earth

    * Ken Rockwell ordered an L-lens from Nikon, and got one.

    * Ken Rockwell is the only person to have photographed Jesus; unfortunately he ran out of film and had to use a piece of cloth instead.

    * When Ken Rockwell brackets a shot, the three versions of the photo win first place in three different categories

    * Before Nikon or Canon releases a camera they go to Ken and they ask him to test them, the best cameras get a Nikon sticker and the less good get a Canon sticker

    * Once Ken tested a camera, he said I cant even put Canon on this one,thats how Pentax was born

    * Rockwellian policy isn't doublethink - Ken doesn't even need to think once

    * Ken Rockwell doesn't use flash ever since the Nagasaki incident.

    * Only Ken Rockwell can take pictures of Ken Rockwell; everyone else would just get their film overexposed by the light of his genius

    * Ken Rockwell wanted something to distract the lesser photographers, and lo, there were ducks.

    * Ken Rockwell is the only one who can take self-portraits of you

    * Ken Rockwell's nudes were fully clothed at the time of exposure

    * Ken Rockwell once designed a zoom lens. You know it as the Hubble SpaceTelescope.

    * When Ken unpacks his CF card, it already has masterpieces on it.

    * Rockwell portraits are so lifelike, they have to pay taxes

    * On Ken Rockwell's desktop, the Trash Icon is really a link to National Geographic Magazine

    * Ken Rockwell spells point-and-shoot "h-a-s-s-e-l-b-l-a-d"

    * When Ken Rockwell went digital, National Geographic nearly went out of business because he was no longer phyically discarding photos

    * For every 10 shots that Ken Rockwell takes, 11 are keepers.

    * Ken Rockwell's digital files consist of 0's, 1's AND 2's.

    * Ken Rockwell never focus, everything moves into his DoF

    * Ken Rockwell's shots are so perfect, Adobe redesigned photoshop for him: all it consists of is a close button.

    * The term tripod was coined after his silhouette

    * Ken Rockwell never produces awful work, only work too advanced for the viewer

    * A certain braind of high-end cameras was named after people noticed the quality was a lot "like a" rockwell

    * Ken Rockwell isn't the Chuck Norris of photography; Chuck Norris is the Ken Rockwell of martial arts.

    * Ken Rockwell never starts, he continues

    The guy forgot to mention that, much as he despises ken rockwell, kr has the dream job most of us would love, and makes more than most of us in ordinary day jobs.

    So who's got the last laugh?

    The meaning of "LOL" can be different from one

    It would be a pleasure when you can tell us
    how you feel or describe in more detail what you
    mean by "LOL".

    good I agree with you...!
    Don't become a slave to the BBB virus.
    The money and time spent learning more about photography and light, will reap more rewards than spending $$$ on the latest lens/gear
    Exploring! :)
