Camera Preference?

I've always liked photography, especially involving cars.
That being said, I'd like to get a nice camera to take pics with. I'm not really familiar with cameras at all, so if anyone has any suggestions or preferences, please tell.

Re: Camera Preference?

Nikon D40 is what I am buying when I get my Newegg Account paid off. Best camera for the money I have found.

well... the easyshare is nice and all... it just doesn't take AMAZING pics like the D3000 will. I already got a 55mm-200mm lens for it. And it comes with an 18mm-55mm. I'm hoping to learn how to use it this semester. Then, when the snow freaking leaves, a photoshoot or 2404034 of them can occur. Afterall, the Termi hood hasn't had a proper photoshoot.

None of the traffic up there seemed too terrible.

This is true, the termi hood hasn't had that opportunity.
Well, I've had a couple incidents in the mustang with bus drivers...they feel that they can cross over 2 lanes when leaving a bus stop or decide to merge into my lane right in front of me...just things like that, that piss me off...I really don't want any unnecessary body work done on the car.

haha, bad drivers... I don't do anything of the sort. I have 4 years of bus driving almost complaint free (from drivers and riders). I'm hoping the Masters will land me a 2 year college teaching job and that I won't need to drive another bus (ever).
