Hi to all forumers!
I'm a newbie to DSLRs and its my first time posting here but I've learnt TONS from reading the advice and articles in this forum. Salute to all the forumers who kindly and patiently answer even the most trivial question! The atmosphere is great and I look forward to learning more from everyone.
Anyway, after many hours of research and 'recon' trips, I've plunked down the moolahs for a Nikon D80 from a shop that's well regarded in this forum.
If you're curious about my selection, well.. I think you can't go wrong with any of the cameras in this price range, but the moment I picked up the D80, it felt really good in my hands (I got big fat hands, you see...).
Also, invested in a dry cabinet. Lesson learnt from my old film SLR days: the gaskets and seals around the shutter 'melted' and jammed the shutter movement. All these even though I kept it in a dry box with silica gel, no direct sunlght etc...
Now looking forward to the long weekend and learning all that my new baby can perform
