Re: Nikon Launches South India?s First Exclusive D-SLR Zone

I got a D40 series camera. It is an SLR Compact, lightweight and powerful allowing everyone to create stunning images. With the simple design of the D40, you can use the same digital and optical technologies that professionals use without worrying about complex settings. It does not matter what photo you to want to click this just shows you the proper image quality. There are easy to use help menu and image configuration.
