Where you standing very close to him?
the camera comes with a 18 - 55 lens. at 55 it is ruffly a three time magnification of what you see with the human eye. you need turn the lens to the right when you are looking through the camera to have the image magnified. If that still doesnt get you close enough then you are going to want to buy another lens. or you can also crop the photo but how much you can crop depend on how big of a picture you want to print.

Why wont my nikon d3000 SLR download pictures to my computer ?

First of all, you upload pictures to your computer (you are putting pictures into the computer, not taking them out; downloading). Make sure that your computer's plug-n-play module recognizes that your camera is attached. Depending on if you have a Mac or PC, you may need to download and install a new driver for your computer from the Nikon website. I never connect a USB cable from my camera to the computer for uploads. Instead, I take the SD memory card out of the camera and insert it in the card reader on my iMac. If your computer does not have a built in card reader, many brands of external card readers are available at very low prices on line.

Best lens to add to d40 nikon to take baseball picture from dug out

So many people are browsing for the best D40 lens to take baseball picture i will give you some information about this topic i am not a professional photographer

if it's played on a full sized diamond you'll need 300mm if shooting from on the field/dugout. 200mm isn't long enough to shoot corner-to-corner. Realize though if it's not sunny at that time of day (i.e if it's overcast) you'll be shooting at 1600 to get needed shutter speeds at 5.6

IS is not necessary but USM is. THe 70-300 is the best choice for your needs as long as lighting is good.

hope this information will be help full for you

Is nikon a easy camera to learn how to use

Yes it is. On the dial button where you choose the shooting mode there are a few for absolute beginners like : portrait, landscape, macro, sport, ...
Just set your cam to one of those and you're ready to go. But on the same dial button you can access advanced modes where you have to set the parameters for taking a picture.
Any SLR camera will make better picture than a normal compact cam.
Check prices of canon, sony, samsung, panasonic and other competetive slr's.
My personal favourite is canon, but then again - it's all matter of choice ...

So in short - go for it!

I have a Nikon D80 SLR camera, and have purchased an Opteka 650 x 1300 mm zoom lens (fit on). I have changed the setting on the camera to manual, and it will now take photographs, however the images are...

You can't meter through that lens. If the images are too dark, either slow down the shutter speed or open the aperture. Keep going until the picture looks okay on the monitor. If you know how to use the histogram, that's even better. If you go too far and get images too light, reverse the process (faster shutter speed or smaller aperture).

If you have another light meter, you can use that to get a ballpark exposure to start with. Alternatively, take a reading with your other lens at the longest zoom.
