New gadget for the new camera

I went ahead and got the Nikon SB-400 Speedlight AF Flash. This little guy does a super job. Already taken several pictures around the house and it's so much better. The built-in flash on the D40 is really good, but this new guy can be tilted up 90° for bouncing the flash of the ceiling for a huge improvement.

I also took a self picture in the mirror with the new flash.
Just another test of the new camera

There's one more accessory I would like to have, but need to watch the funds. Just want a really good prime lens as ljtourist previously suggested.

I'm really looking forward to taking some better pictures now. I know this has been some money to spend, but it's a good investment and will last for years.

This little flash is just awesome. Very small package, fully programmable via the camera and that tilt function is great. It's just the lens and the bulb that pivot on the front.

Only annoying thing is that the camera whines at you when you don't have the flash facing forward (yeah, it actually senses that too). I just need to get used to ignoring that.

I think your investment will be well worth it. That does look like a useful little flash. And your new icon is priceless... :)
