I'm looking for a new camera.
since I have alot of "filters", 3 nikon flashes and 1 nikon lense, I want a Nikon.
I took some pics with a d40 and I love it.

wich one is better, a d40 or a d50? (i guess that the d50 > d40..)

I dont want to pay over 500-600$

are most of the pics you see here enhanced with a program.

if so, are you able to get the same quality without using a program?

^I'm sure a lot of those pictures have some post-processing applied. But depending on the lens and camera settings.. great pictures can come out of the XTi with minimal/no PP. There are a few groups on Flickr dedicated to no Photoshop or PP. Search a group for XTi or 400D. Here's a link.

Say you have a 17-70mm lens. Would you be able to take wide angle + portrait shots? is 70mm enough for action photos?

but
the higher the " "mm the better it can take far objects right?

but does the focal length have anything to do with action pictures (panning and depth of field) or is it only useful for its reach.

i can get teh same effect with a wideangle rigiht?

The higher the mm the more zoom/telephoto the lens has. If you're courtside at a basketball game you want enough zoom to get the action across the court. So with action sports, again depending on which sport and the style of shooting, more mm is great.

You can get a nice shot with a wide-angle and just crop it.. but the quality won't be there.

Thanks for the help.

It takes away the purpose of the properties section (stuff that shows aperture, iso, etc.) when the pic is touched with a program.

I was wondering if you could link me up with a few more links dedicated to non-touched pics of canon xti's. I don't really know what to type in the search field.

I'm planning on picking up a D40 outfit in the next week or so and also getting the 18-70mm Nikon lens. Any other lens recommendations? Preferably under $300.
