Nikon D40

5 posts in this topic

My wife and I recently bought a Nikon D40 and are wondering if there is a class offered that shows us how to use it to the fullest. We live if the West metro. Thanks for any help.

The National Camera stores have classes -- and I think they might even be free if you got the camera from them. I just checked the web site and they have Digital SLR 1 and 2. I think the Nikon web site also has a range of tutorials.

I would second the National Camera classes. If you go to the web site or just call one of the stores they have many, many classes. Gives you a hands on experience with others about the same experience level. I do much better at grasping concepts new when I can have it in my hands and use the features.

In our Area, the community education programs offered by the school district in Moorhead, offers a Photoshop class (3 levels) and a intro to digital photography, and a intro to your slr class. Members of the school district get a discount. Check with your local MN school District also.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
