Another newbie here


I very rudely went and posted a question about a problem I'm having before I actually introduced myself so I thought I'd better stop in here and say hello.

I'm new to digital but not photography - been shooting in 35mm film since I was 17 and got into photography at the end of high school. I decided to make the jump to a DSLR this year, as a birthday present to myself and also because we had a new baby on the way and the hassle and cost of processing the films was getting me down.

Having only $300.00 to spend, I managed to find a deal on a *ist DL on eBay that I couldn't pass up, and I've been very happy with my new toy, using it to take pics of our new house, and most recently the new baby.

I hope I can become a regular here, if my time allows it. I look forward to adding new lenses and getting better with the digital photography, and if I get my little battery issue sorted I will be happy!

Thank you. I will try to get some pics on soon, but it's hard to do anything away from the baby right now because I feel bad if I'm doing something other than taking care of her!

Thanks for your help in my other thread about the batteries as well.
