    New to digital

    Gooday all

    I am relatively new to digital photography but have had a simple digital point and shoot for years. While I do not currently have a DSLR I have been out with a friend who does and have been observing and learning heaps so will be asking questions.

    Well then. Get in amongst it and show us what you've got. You can still learn with a P&S.

    G'day Greg

    Firstly - Welcome to the AP family ... we're an avid lot here and many of us have the addiction called "we love our photography"

    You say that you've got a P&S shooter - all well and good - and your mate has a dSLR - again all well & good too ... while you (in the future) have many options as to where to go when you decide to move on, may I suggest that you consider one of the UltraZoom fixed-lens systems as well as the dSLR cameras

    While many on this list have never used a UZ, they do provide a very useful set of options to many people ... less weight & size & $ than a dSLR: almost as many "knobs & buttons" as a dSLR; a single, very useful zoom lens; and you still maintain lots of the convenience of the P&S camera

    These days, many of these UZ cameras have viewfinders equal in quality to the dSLR cameras [tho some big-name dSLR camera makers do not, sorry to say] and they are, for all practical purposes a dSLR without being an interchangeable-lens system

    Something to think about while you're out shooting...
    Regards, phil
