    WOW, just got Nikon D90

    Hi All,

    Hubby brought me a Nikon D90 yesterday for my birthday ( a few weeks early )
    I am so excited, my first SLR, OMG... now I have to learn how to use this wonderful
    piece of equipment, lol.

    Going though the manual, there is so much to learn, so I hope you guys
    can help me out when I am stuck ( I know you will, this is a wonderful and
    very helpful forum ) I am charging battery at the moment, can't wait to
    start using it.

    We actually went to town to look at the new fujifilm Hs10, thought that would be the
    next step up, but couldn't find one in town.

    Hubby suggested, what is the point of buying that when I will still want a SLR anyway.
    Might as well just get the SLR, ( ok, if you insist ) I just hope I have made the right decision. I know it is not so much the camera as the person using it, so I have a big learning curve ahead of me.

    Well I just had to tell someone, i am sooooo excited, hope I have posted in the right
    place.

    So please look out for my photos and cc to help with my learning.

    Cheers

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Nikon. I have a D90, and still learning so much after having it for 11 months. Each time I use it I find something new to experiment with. It takes great images too. Have fun!

    There are lots of D90s in AP-land, so if you do have a question, I'm sure you won't go long without an answer.

    Now show us some shots!

    So where do you get one of them? (hubbies I mean).

    Congratulations on your new camera. We have the d60 which we love, but have decided to add a d300s to our gear soon (just have to work out who gets the new one ).

    The learning curve is steep, but get to know your camera and manual well, study AP, particularly the New to photography section which helped us a lot, ask heaps of questions if the search engine on AP doesn't bring up what you want, and practice, then post some images. Posting images can seem scary, but is by far the best way to improve, and we love to see piccies

    Enjoy, and I will look out for your threads.
