Hi all,
after years of point and shoot cameras I have taken the plunge and decided to get a dslr. I have picked up a k100d super as all reviews said it was a good camera for a beginner. However, I find it confusing at times, but hope to get the hang of it. With this in mind I am sure there will be a few daft questions comming your way soon.
cheers Alan

Thats funny, I've been using SLRs then DSLRs for years, and I find point and shoots confusing I was asked to take a pic for someone at the Goth Meet, I brought the camera to my eye only to discover there was no viewfinder

Good for you Alan, plunge right in and don't worry about asking what you may think are daft questions. They're only daft if left unasked. Welcome to the forum, I know you will enjoy your time spent here.


I gladly welcome C & C's. Being foggy minded they really help me learn.
