Sounds good then, man.

I seen a lot of photos taken with the sx40, they come out quite nice. All of those photos in that link I put up were done "out of the box", no going into settings or anything, and no post-work, like touch ups in Photoshop and what have you, exactly what I want for now.

So I will probably order this one, the bundle here. Does the memory card that comes with it in this bundle work for that camera (I'd assume so but just checking) and that is the right camera (sx40) yeah?

Yeah man you're good to go.

The SX40 is widely considered one of, if not the best bridge camera. You can't go wrong really. Don't expect the tripod/bag etc that comes with it to be amazing :P Shocking how that camera in the UK costs exactly the same, but in pounds. It's £360 here, so you're getting a good price.

Awesome. Ordered it, hope it's as good as everyone says (it looks great, I saw some photos that were taken with it are published in magazines and such).

We will have to talk some KRY, so I can get some tips from you and maybe some advice on settings and things.

For sure man. Always around to give a hand! Photography is very addictive once you start learning And a bridge is a perfect 'intro' camera, as you can use full manual mode and shutter/aperture priority modes and even custom dials to 'save' your favourite settings.

Getting off of auto is a bit daunting at first, but once you do your photos will drastically improve in quality.

Only feature I see it lacks, is the ability to shoot RAW, but, as you said you weren't looking to post process any images, JPEG is perfect (Basically a RAW file, is an unfinished file, which allows you to choose tons of settings and change things easily rather than letting the camera decide them, makes using the 'digital darkroom' so much easier and give you a million times more options, and it's completely non destructive)

Word.

I can still take the photos and "touch them up" with Photoshop though, which will be fun. I love photography (it's why I like Photoshop so much) but never had a camera to really do anything.

I'll hit you up for some tips and stuff, you will have to explain to me how high/low to set the apeture and shutter speed for certain conditions and stuff, I'll be picking your brain.

Nice dude. Apertures are the numbers you see with an 'f' in front of them. Like 'f/4'

Large apertures (smaller the number, bigger the aperture) are used for two main reasons. To create faster shutter speeds (more light entering the lens = less time the sensor needs to gather that light) and to isolate a subject with very shallow depth of field.

Medium Apertures are used for maximum sharpness, with pretty normal depth of field. Best used for images where depth of field isn't a priority at all, like taking a photo of someone against a brick wall? Use f/8 or so.

Small Apertures create massive depth of field, perfect for landscape shots. With such a small opening, a tripod is often used as the shutter speeds become to slow to hand hold. This can be countered with using higher ISO, but the higher the ISO, the more noise occurs in an image.

It's "out for delivery" so I will get it today definitely. I will keep you guys updated on how it is.

As for what I'm wearing, stop spying on me KRY.
