It says at the top of my screen that I've not posted anything on the forum since I've registered and that I should just drop a post to say Hi to everybody, so I thought I would.
Sounds strange that I would put "thank you" as the thread title when I am supposed to say "hello"? But yeah, that is exactly the first salutation I wanna make to everybody. I just got my first DSLR last month and joined CS a few days after that. But CS is not new to me. In fact, I spent hours on CS, making full use of the search functions and all the advice of the old birds here, doing research on the equipments that I need or want to get. Thanks to the heaps and heaps of advice I found here, I learnt so much more about the stuff I want to get, the stuff I should or should not get and of course, the "black shops" that I should avoid. I learnt so much from here that somebody actually remarked that I don't sound like a newbie when in actual fact, I am really one. So thank you everybody for your kind advice. I am still trawling the forum for more advice on the accessories I want to add and on how to improve the different aspects of my photography skills, so... a big Thank You to everybody in advance for the advice I will get in the future.
