Hello Steve and Everyone,
After years of P&S 35mm I decided to go Digital. I studied this Forum and read the reviews. I visited several camera stores and came away with more questions than answers. Undaunted I continued my research. I met a young man named Brandon in my local Best Buy who is an excellent Amateur Photographer. After a few questions he suggested either the D70 or the Rebel. Out came both cameras, batteries were installed and some basic instruction given. I left with my head somewhat spinning from all the information he had given me.I continued to visit the Net and this Forum reading every thing I could.
Yesterday I called to make sure Brandon was there and purchased the Rebel and some accessories. I am extremely pleased with my purchase and wish to thank all of the forum members and especially that fine young man, Brandon. I hope that others will have the same experience I did in their quest for a Digital Camera. Amazing how quickly a 256CF fills as you learn and play with all the settings :-)
I wish to thank all of you for assisting me without even being aware of it.
