Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Frustrated female with a stupid camera

I used my sisters nikon d50 and took over 350 photos of football games for the boys and girls club. People thought I was from a newspaper press. They were great. Clear, detailed, you could even see the face expressions through their helmets. So I go out and buy the nikon d40 because it's the newest one up from the d50 AND I HATE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For the life of me...I cannot figure the camera out. I have been on every web site, contacted Nikon by phone, (which was a joke). I don't think they even knew they made and sold camera's. The pictures are blurry, dark, etc. If there were a way for me to show you two pictures of the same field, same lighting, same every thing with the d40 and d50 you would understand me better. I think the camera is junk, broken...can you help?
