    Anyone here into photography? I quite like it but I never get much time away from the computer. Anyway, there are two new Nikon DSLRs out, the Nikon D300s and the D3000, pictures available at Digital Camera Shops.

    Canon for me too, though you do have to say some of the new Nikons do appear to be very good.

    I bought my first Digital SLR at the start of the year, got a cracking deal on a Nikon D60 the best camera i have ever owned by a long shot.

    Just need to get time to use the thing now!

    You can with a Canon, but can try with a Nikon :p

    Still wise I own a 10D and 5D (digital), 5 and 10 (film) yeah yeah I got the same in both :p, and I have XH-A1 (my crimbo pressy for myself) HD Video camera too, used to have a XL2 but I needed HD.

    I just got a f'ing dead pixel on the 5D LCD, luckily I'm CPS so will be 2 day repair but the costs bonkers!

    p.s. What do you lot take photo's of ?

    Canon user here :D
    Mainly motorsport with the occasional bit of music stuff (I run a music venue so it would be rude not to) and even more rare is landscape etc

    This is the very first picture I ever took on my Canon DSLR and the only one I ever sold (so far). Need to take more time to wander about with the camera -- quality time.

    I started taking a few photos last year when out on my bike rides, nothing special, but they're on my site here, see gallery links top left: Sussex Photography

    Camera used was my Kodak Z1285, cost £119 when it was bought for me, doesn't take a bad photo for the price of it. I keep meaning to do something with my site and try and get the forum going, I'll get round to it one day.

    A very nice landscape on the home page there. Would you like a link exchange with my Digital Camera Shops site? Please PM me if you do.
