    Hi Fizzster,

    Welcome on board to Club Canon ... I mean Clubsnap.

    LOL! I'm a lightsider too!


    PS: Since the Pentaxians have their own outings, wonder if Canonians would like one too.

    well, I think outings shouldn't be restricted to brands of cameras, coz that breeds a culture of "brand consciousness"... After all, if I have a Nikon and you have a Canon, our common interest is still photography, am I right?

    Of course it's always fun to take a 'dig' at the other brand during outings, especially when one belongs to the majority group...

    Welcome to Clubsnap!

    An "amateur" is defined as someone who doesn't earn any income from a particular activity (sport, photography, etc). It has no bearing on how good one is at that activity. If someone has been in photography for 20 years, but only as a hobby, he/she is still considered an amateur.

    Welcome to CS!

    If you're truly eager to learn, get yourself grounded in the fundamentals of photography first instead of blasting away blindly.

    And read your camera manual till you're thoroughly familiar with your camera's functions and controls.
