I just bought a Nikon D40x and I like it so far. I was using my cousins Canon EOS 5D which I must say is the sickest camera I have ever laid hands on. We are trying to break into the photography world but honestly I suck. From shooting with both the Canon and Nikon I realized that equipment is important but really comes down to skill and being able to control the settings. With that said a lot of you guys are outrageously good and I am sure you all have some knowledge to share. So, please school me ecspecially on the best ways to take night shots.
