Default Hi, I'm me.

I've already started a thread and didn't see this, so hopefully that's okay.

Hello, I'm Chris. I've always loved photography, even when growing up. I guess I just want to take a piece of the world with me and taking pictures allows me to do just that.

While on a trip to see family I had a perfect opportunity to take a picture of a bald eagle in the wild. With my point and shoot as my only means of taking the shot I realized that even with my camera having a CMOS chip that I was never going to get the quality I really wanted with that style camera.

So, I'm in the market for a DSLR and joined this forum to pick the brains of those that will allow me, and learn from the experience of others. Plus people posting such eye candy that it's hard to resist visiting this site and not staying for large amounts of time.

Welcome to Steve's

I see that TCav (one of our more respected and knowledgeable Senior Members has already responded to your query). So, hopefully that will help you have a better understanding of what to look for in a solution for getting the images you want to capture.

I suspect that you'll see other responses, too (and there's no such thing as a perfect camera or lens, so opinions will vary on the right choice[s], where in the end, you'll need to decide on the solution that best fits your needs and stays within your desired budget).

Thanks!

Yep, that plethora of knowledge TCav threw my way was exactly what I was looking for and will make sure to digest it when I have the time.

And I understand, most technology is like that, people like what they like and I'm sure I'll find my footing with time.
