    Thumbs up The SONY DSLR forum ... a place worth a look

    Hey Guys (and/or Gals) …

    Wouldn’t it be nice if we … had a prospective SONY DSLR member come in, as for the first camera kit recommendation, we give it to that person … and they start off w/o the “kit lens” issues and taking pictures far and above the standard P&S faire? I mean WHAM … they are right “in the hunt” with superior capabilities!

    With things like:
    • No struggling with any old film lenses some unscrupulous dealer is still trying to pawn off on them?
    • Knowing just what to ask for when they walk in the store (or buy online)?
    • What proper filter selections to make, to protect their lenses?
    • What software to use to get the most from their photography experience?
    • Knowing what the rough price of every item should be, in their bag, before they ever break out the funding?




    That’s kind of what I had envisioned this forum to partially be about. A mutual sharing effort … to deliver the goods. Hey, the price is right!

    Any other thoughts along this line?

    Welcome aboard! Just ask ... let's see what happens, shall we?

    Damn right and never looked back, the input and advice from this forum REALLY made the differance in what I bought, and I am sure saved me money in the long run! Also being self taught I have learned more from the forum then in all the books, articles, and other web sites and firums combined! One always seems to be most critical of there own work, I think my images are very inferior to what I see on here, but other people here on flickr my local school district, and community web radio tell me different. So there thats my endorsement!

    yeah and a large part of that reason for those stats is because the top author (YOU) hangs out in the Sony DSLR forum...Like you said before, you talk (type) too much.
