My darling has arrived!

Welcome home my sweet, sweet Nikon DSLR D40!

I went to collect the stuff I bought with a friend today at Sunway Pyramid. Melvin, the guy whom I dealt with at the photo shop for my order was a nice chap. We fidgeted with the camera, lens and speedlight. I fired a few test shots on my friend, Ray (thanks for 'modelling', sir!) using the built-in flash and speedlight. I can see the difference - the effect's better with the speedlight although both shots looked great.

By the way, I decided to go for the
SB600 speedlight instead of the SB400. This one's better in the sense that you can flip it up and about. Cool.

Will post some shots once I've played with it tomorrow. I've yet to decide where to go but most likely it'll be around the park nearby my place. Here are some
shots I took at the said park using my good ol' point-and-shoot camera, some time ago.
