New camera!

Nikon D40

I bought a new camera from Amazon the other day. A Nikon D40 SLR.It arrived today. The deal was as follows: "[Bundle] Nikon - D40 black + AF-S DX 18-55 mm Lens + PIX SLR Camera case (15 x 11 x 14.5 cm) + 2 GB Memory card".

The camera looks great, the battery is on charge, but where is the camera case, the memory card, AND why are ALL the instructions in f*cking FRENCH?

I am pissed off!

I've got a D50. I didn't get a case or a memory card AND the instructions were in English!!! I had to translate them to Welsh first!

Bad luck about the instructions J. Download from the internet??.. any SD card will work if you have one. If it's any consolation the charged battery will last for AGES. That's not a joke by the way.

ooops, just read the full post, like I should have done to start with. Yes, Amazon have been a bit naughty. Commiserations.

I admit to preferring to going into a shop and getting a deal there. I bought a Canon something last year - free case/bag and other doobries that I've forgotten.

Now I need to know which sort of extra lenses to get (one at a time) - I only have the bog-standard lense.

Did you get an anti-scratch lense? It's worth the money.

I'm ashamed to say it but I will anyway, I have a digital camera and I still haven't used it. Woe is me.

[Is the pepper sauce there as yet?]

GG, no, not as we speak.

Maybe Keith can translate whilst he's serves up his French cuisine...

:D

Sim, hi, I want the correct items, and as Keith is short of a few items, this could be problematic!

Well the picture of the camera looks good!!

Memory card presumably is not SD. Least of your worries, and they should still provide the correct one so keep on to them, John.

If instructions in French is a big problem send them to me.

Good luck with it. I have a new Pentax and cannot find enough reasons to take pics to test it

:-(

In fact John if this tiny URL works this is the link to the manual in English...

SLR: that's serious stuff isn't it. You should phone Amazon and create. They must not be allowed to get away with it!
And I can't believe GG is so naughty - not using her digital.

Blazing and Mum2, the memory card arrived today so at least it's useable! Thanks anyway.

Phone or email Nikon and they can email you the pdf instructions in English. I bought a toshiba Video/DVD recorder in France and they assured me the instructions were in English also. Bollocks all in Frog. Good luck Debs x
I arrived via Dumdad.
