Default Finally took the plunge.....and loving it!

After spending many hours reading reviews and forums on this excellent site, I finally took the plunge and bought the EOS 10d and various lenses with a Lexar 40x 1gb CF card. Initially, it took some time to get back into using an SLR, let alone a digi SLR after about 6 years with just point and shoot or digital video. Am now chuffed to bits with the gear and thank everyone who has made informative comments/reviews or given logical or well informed information on the 10d. Have owned in the past, cameras such as Chinon CM4s (1st SLR camera in 1981), Olympus OM-10, Canon EOS 5, Nikon F5, Nikon F3, Mamiya RB67 but this, coupled with Photoshop 7, is the absolute business!!! Took MANY photos in the 1st 48 hours (see

http://www.photo.net/photodb/folder....lder_id=372592 )

and hope to have many more years joy with this new toy!!!! As a kid I spent HOURS in the darkroom with the glorious smell of the chemicals, and frustration of focusing in low red lights, spilt liquids staining my clothes, and many awful but lovingly prepared photos drying all around the bath. Fond memories, but a comfy chair, new PC and digi stuff everywhere is the life for me.....

Thanks again,

Nick.

I hope you stick around, you seem to have a certain style that testifies to your years of prior experience. It appears to me that you have simply upgraded the paintbrush...the painter has already put in the necessary time and is simply dipping the bristle into a new well of fresh paint in order to demonstrate an aged and nicely cured expertise.

Excellent

Default I love your darkroom anology

Firefly: I to can fondly remember the darkroom days. I once heard on another post at DPreview that somebody thought that it was an awlful lot of work to adjust a photo in Photoshop. Any one who thinks that has never spent time in a darkroom.

Another darkroom junkie here. Gave it up a few years back, but the equipment is still in the attic. One of these days, I need to have a garage sale! :lol:
