You can't expect amazing photos right off the bat. But it certainly gives you room to TAKE great photos. That's why the camera itself matters less, it matters more how you use it.

Thanks for the advice! Ebay makes me leery as it is, so I probably wouldn't spend this amount of money on there :lol: I'll check out Amazon & the other places you listed :)



I know it takes a lot of practice, i'm just anxious to read up on it more & start learning about all the different settings and terms !

I took some more photos of ALi in the swing but part of his head came out over-exposed. :(

Well I decided to join this thread since taking pictures is one of my favorite things. I have a Nikon D5000 and I've had it for 3 years. When I first got it I tried learning more about it, then I started to get lazy and just used auto all the time. About a year and half ago I started using the P mode and now I've finally started using manual more. There is so much I want/need to learn though! Here's some examples of my pictures over the years
2009 when I first got it

Thank you! And I agree just gotta get past my fear and start using it all the time. I usually find myself in the A mode a lot too.
