Nikon D40 – My First Digital SLR Camera

After a long time of shooting with Point & Shoot, I finally decided to move to SLR to have more control over photos i capture… After a lot of research I finally ended up with Nikon D40 (with 18-55mm lens) as my first dSLR 🙂

Nikon D40

Also bought SB-400 external flash, a tripod, UV Filter and carrying case with it 🙂

    A.O.A.zahid bhai sahib plz guide me.i have only 10000 RS to buy some nice digital camera that could make stills n videos in average. i m fond of making movie clips.i only know that Nikon is a better company with low pices.

  13. Posted by Zahid on November 7, 2009 at 12:08 am

    @Roofi: w.salam, if you’re in Karachi, check the saddar camera market. You should be able to find a nikon, canon, or sony close to your budget. Check the online reviews before making the final choice.

    Dear All & Zahid sb,

    With all the due respect it is nice reading your blog, just bought D3000 ( i was reading since an year for DSLR’s finally bought that for Rs : 53,500 accessories includes UV Filter, Mid Size BAG tagged CAMTRONIX, 4gb High Speed Class 6 Card ) although deal was Ok as camera alone was costing me 51,000 with One Yr / Warranty… now a days D40 even D60 is not available although i tried buying them but nil found in my area,

    Its worth reading some reviews / Comments on DSLR although there are few ppl reading/writing those in PAK…. Do you have some pics page on digital media uploaders like flicr or google as i am interested to see pak talent and upload / share mine

    Rgds / Zeeshan

  15. Posted by Zee on November 29, 2009 at 4:23 pm

    I just have seen your Photos Gallery Its Worth seeing Every picture MASHALLAH great job indeed inspiring one, i am glad we both have the same tripod it costs me Rs: 1300 from Munir Photos ( Pindi ), Yesterday i exposed some shoots soon going to create flikr account to upload… Sorry before i just red your blog not check those drag and drops holding your photos corner..

    Rgds / Zeeshan

  16. Posted by Zahid on November 30, 2009 at 12:04 am

    You could get D90 for 20K more, or a D40 used for 25K less. anyways, have a nice time taking pics 🙂
    You can find many Pak groups on Flickr.

    btw, glad to knw that my blog has readers 😀 even though its rarely updated! hehe

  27. Posted by Zahid on March 4, 2010 at 11:23 pm

    For dSLR, Trying finding Nikon D40. For a new entry-level Nikons or Canons you would need to raise your budget for that. Sony Olympus might work too.

    Any good Point&Shoot Canon or Nikon should be available within your range. I would highly recommend Canon S90, SD960, or SD970.

    Hi Zahid,

    Wow learnt alot about DSLR’s by just reading comments here. I want to buy my first DSLR. I have been using a Sony Cybershot for the past 2 years but now feel like upgrading to a DSLR. But the prob is my budget. Can you please suggest the best DSLR under 25k?

  45. Posted by Zahid on November 26, 2010 at 11:54 am

    Thanks 🙂
    Try finding out used Nikon D40, Sony A3xx, Canon 400D(XTi).. they should be close to your budget.
