Hi Just joined after lurking for a month or two. I find the work here inspiring and I look forward to learning from you all. I don’t have any axe to grind as regards equipment, I just enjoy seeing good photos. In comparison with you guys I’d classify myself as a novice especially with photo editing. (You’ll be finding that out without me saying so) My past experience with cameras has always been on the cheap end and is likely to remain that way for the foreseeable future. 35mm Film:- Halina Paulette Electric, Zenit E, Fuji STX1. Digital - All point and shoot :- Canon Ion Still Video, Olympus, Fuji, Nikon Coolpix 3200. I recently bought a Fuji F660EXR reason being this was the cheapest compact I could find which offered manual control. So that’s it for now. Cheers Rog.
