couldn't find an introduction section, so I do apologise if there should be a more appropriate section to do this.
Anyhow, I'm a somewhat newbie here; have been lurking around the various threads for about a week or so.
For some strange reason i've been thinking of getting a DSLR in recent times, after doing some casual shooting with a PnS all these while. It's a theme i've revisited a number of times, actually - just that i've never gotten down to it due to a number of factors, budget being a recurring theme.
I can't explain the desire for a DSLR though. Perhaps it's the allure of potentiall being able to take captivating shots, or the attraction of being able to have the power to 'hold time' for that moment. Perhaps it runs in the family. My dad used to be an avid film photographer - i fondly remember our spare toilet being the darkroom when i was younger, heh. And to get an idea of how long ago that was, i've got a an asahi pentax auto 110 lying around at home, heh.
So anyhow, that's that. I'm a total newbie though, but am thinking of either a Canon 550D or a Nikon D90. But thats another story for another day and thread.
