    Awesome!
    I have a D40. I got it about a year ago. I keep mine in 'P' mode.

    You should head over to the Photography board there is tons of info over there

    Here is a thread on fireworks http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1474329

    If you wanna see some of my photos check out my photo blog, I haven't tried any of the fireworks settings they recommend as I don't have a tripod, but I have mainly Disney pics.

    I checked out the book Nikon D40 for dummies from the library and it helped me learn what all the buttons and things do. Trying to learn from the manual that comes with the camera is mind numbing.

    Enjoy your camera :lovestruc
