    Default Newbie saying Hi Hi

    Hi Hi

    This is my 1st post... & I'm really amazed how active this forum is
    After weeks of browsing thru' this forum in search of valuable information on which camera to buy, I finally took the plunge in buying my 1st dslr yesterday.
    I'm now a proud (hehe... hopefully) owner of a Nikon D80 which I got from Comex.
    This gadget is still very new to me, looks complicated somewhat... some many buttons/dials here & there

    Anyway, will stick around & hope to learn a thing or two from all the shifus here. Many thanks in advance.

    Cheers!

    good choice of camera. you are fortunate enough to have the budget for the D80! now you will need to get a dry box or cabinet to keep the equipment and perhaps more $$$ for better lens , 50mm prime is a good start. and perhaps a flash. SB600.

    i just gotten my 400D over at comex too. if not for budget constrain i would have jumped to nikon D80 also.
    random equipment.
    where are my primes?

    Hi,

    Thanks for the welcome & advice.
    Yes, I got the D80 with kit lens. Will hope to add more lens & stuff like flash etc. soon when budget permits.
    Was reading a tread discussion earlier on 50mm f1.4 & f1.8, maybe that will be next.

    For now, I'm still figuring out how this thing works.

    Really want to learn more about photography from fellow forumers here.

    Cheers!

    Thanks again for the warm welcome.

    Have not really gone shooting yet, hopefully can shoot something nice this weekend.

    Ya, am looking around for the 50mm f/1.8, but seems like everywhere no stock

    If any of you know where I can get hold of one, pls let me know.

    Many thanks in advance!!

    B&S section, TCW (I saw at least 10 of them there!), John 3:16 (got 2 i think), Cathay (I think I saw 1 or 2)...

    Best is still B&S section though, you don't need the warranty and its cheaper by at least $30.
