    So my girlfriends birthday is coming up soon and she's really into photography.

    I figured i would get her a Digital SLR camera to encourage her along, I don't know a whole lot about cameras so I was wondering if this would be a good starter for her.

    Right now shes using some 6mp Kodak and before that it was a cannon elph, shes also pretty good at using photoshop.

    I have no clue shes also an art major so i figured she would like something like the Nikon plus i know she wants to take some more photography classes.

    My knowledge of cameras for myself is something small so i can shove it in my pocket.

    yeah, something simple like a d40 would be good.
    canon rebel xti is also a good choice.

    I agree, or if you have the money for the X, just spend a bit more and get a d80. I wish I had gotten the D80 instead of the D40.
