About seven or eight years ago I bought a D40 thinking I was going to take up photography. Sometime between then and now I got derailed, and the camera is still setting on my desk, unused, collecting dust. Four years ago, I went to Alaskan on a cruise, but rather than take the D40, I opted for something smaller, a pocket size digital that seemed easy to set on auto, point and shoot.
I have a couple of trips coming up this fall and would like to take some photos. I'm thinking of taking the Nike, but will likely use the automatic setting. If it means anything the D40 is 6.1 mp and the pocket camera is 20 mp I think.
Is there any reason for me to take the D40 rather than the smaller, easier to carry, pocket camera?
