New Camera!

Finally got my hands on a digital SLR, so I made a little outdoor (porch) excursion with Harley and Jax. I thought I'd post a few of each.

They both have stunning eyes! And that pouncing tiger pic is great!
They're all great pictures.

Very good attempts for your first days with the D40x! The first two are a bit blurred but the rest are very nice and crisp.

Always focus on the eyes (for people as well as cats!) as you seem to have done, as they have plenty of light/dark contrast and that helps the autofocus system to lock on to how far away the subject is.

In the first one though I think the autofocus has locked on the little grass stalk and leaves as they are perfectly in focus.


Welcome to the Nikon family!

Oh man all this camera talk and Im tempted to get a
Nikon D40X. My nephew and niece in law used the D40X
last christmas and it took FABULOUS photos.

These are great kitty photos. The detail shines.

I love Nikon!

WOW! Those are fantastic!!! I can't believe how beautiful Harley has turned out to be.

Two questions...would you mind if I snagged one or two of these for my website? The ones you sent me were lost in emails I never did get back after I sent my laptop in for repair for the 3rd time.

And, my boyfriend has been talking about getting me a digital SLR for christmas, do you happen to recall what kind of camera you were using? Those pics are stunning.

Mahlee says, Harley is now stealing her limelight. She's not longer the only big, bright, blue eyed avatar.

Edit:
Just read the comments, is it in fact the D40X?

Thank you very much! He's still light on the lower body, but his face is so much darker than when he was a baby.

You can use any of the pictures you'd like - and I think I have all the old ones in my gallery as well - although, those can't beat this camera for quality.

It is indeed a D40X, and I absolutely love it. It's very easy to use and the colors are really vibrant. I pretty much take it everywhere with me now. It's one of the best purchases I've made in a long time.

Mahlee still has plenty of limelight, and she was the original! Also, I think we need to see some updated pics of your gang!

Wow, those pics are gorgeous! A really good camera really makes a world of difference in terms of color vibrance, crispness and detail... congrats!!

I especially love the one of Harley trying to snatch a blade of grass... the expression on his face is priceless. The shape of his face is very unique too - they are both completely adorable.
