Hello from Texas

Hello All,

I just received my first DSLR, a KX kit. This was my birthday gift from my wife and little boy at my request. I am a very lucky man.

I have wanted a better camera to take better photos of my art work but also to do more quality photos of my family.

I have had a little past experience with film SLR's however this has been over 20 years ago so I am pretty green. but now I am here to learn and gain advice from this wonderful resource.

I am sure there were be some dumb questions but please bear with me.

Welcome, Al, from the other side of the world (I've got cousins in Texas, if that helps).

Although you'll occasionally find robust discussion on this forum, there's enough good-natured, helpful people around to answer the "dumbest" question. However, it never hurts to explore the Search feature here, because lots of questions have been answered many times in the past.

Good to have you with us.
