As I said earlier, the D40'S are hard to beat for the money. I really have enjoyed my 2. One word of caution though, if you set it on video, the daytime videos are great. But each video begins with a snap shot which will give the time/date stamp, then the video starts. At night, when in video mode, you will only get the snap shot. Sounds good so far right? Only problem is the snap shot is very very small in size. When you try to enlarge it to see better, it will distort and blur up. To me, with most pics coming at night, the video mode is useless because of the small sized snap pics in that mode. It's ashamed because the videos really do come out well. But then again, with a flash camera you won't get night time videos anyway and the vast majority of my activity is at night.
For a good reference pic in still mode, look at the post from KIMIKE and his freaky buck. Those pics are from a Moultrie D-40 in still mode, I'm pretty sure.
