Golden Gate Bridge at Night with the Nikon D40!

Originally uploaded by Click Clack MA
Every since I got my D40 I have wanted to try getting a picture of the golden gate at night using long exposures. So last Saturday night i drove down to the city and set up the tripod and started playing around! I set the D40 to f16 and 20 second exposure and used my remote to take the shots. This is one of the better results! It was very fun doing this and i look forward to doing more night shots real soon!

New Auto Focus 50mm Prime Lens For your D40, D40x & D60

Sigma has added a new 50mm prime lens to its DG range of optics, compatible with both full-frame and APS-C sized sensors. The 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM features a molded aspherical element and multi-layer coatings, while its Hypersonic Motor (HSM) ensures it will autofocus with Nikon's motorless bodies – namely the D40, D40x and D60. The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 45cm and a maximum magnification factor of 1:7.4, while its EX designation means that it sits in the company's professional range of lenses. The lens will be available in Sigma, Canon, Nikon, Pentax and Sony mounts, though autofocusing will only operate on Pentax and Sony bodies that support its Hypersonic Motor. Details of pricing and availability are yet to be made available.

invisibleSHIELD™ for the Nikon D40

Your search for a(n) Nikon D40 case, skin, or cover is now over. As its name describes, the invisibleSHIELD™ is a tough, clear film that will shield your D40 protecting it from unsightly scratches. Not only will it protect your device, the invisibleSHIELD™ itself does not scratch so your device will always look like it did the day you bought it.

The invisibleSHIELD™ has its origins in the military where it was designed to protect the leading edges of helicopter blades from getting scratched by rocks and debris. If it can protect helicopter blades spinning at hundreds of miles per hour, imagine what the invisibleSHIELD™ can do to protect your D40!

The invisibleSHIELD™ is only .2 milimeters thick making it the slimmest D40 skin or D40 cover of its kind. It is so tough, we back it with a lifetime guarantee. So, if it ever does wear or scratch, we will replace it for free, for life.

If you're still not convinced, please watch this video demo and see for yourself how strong the invisiblSHIELD™ really is.
