Hello folks,

My name is Mike and I am 27 years old. I've been into photography for about 4 years now. I wanted to take better pictures of my kids and I decided to get my first DSLR. I bought the Canon XSI and I quickly realized that I LOVED photography! I am currently looking for a new setup, but the camera I want is still not available. So I am playing the waiting game.

Hello ...

My name is Robert, 29 yo, from Bandung - Indonesia ...

Just upgraded my DSLR last December and I joined this community to learn more about photography.

My primary interests are Kids, Animals, Fashion, Sports & Street.

Hope to learn from all of you.

Many thanks.

Hi all;

My name is Dan, and I live just outside of San Diego, CA. I've had the shutterbug for over 40 years and am getting back in to it after an extended hiatus. The quality of the images from modern DSLRs just blows me away. I thought my olf Nikon F2 was good, but today's digitals ROCK !

I've shot various formats, from 126 to 35mm to 6x6, and a variety of video, DV, HDV, BetaCam, D1, H.264, etc. and like still photography best.

I'm grateful for this forum and the combined expertise of its members. I expect to learn a lot in the coming years, and hope to be able to make some small contribution, as well.

Howdy to all

Name is Paul and am an electrician by trade. Started shooting in high school and have piddled around with photography since then. I am looking forward to learning more and upgrading my skills. Nature and clouds are my passion.

My name is Jeramy. I've been fascinated with photography since highschool, got to play with 5DC, and 30Ds. I bought my first camera about a year ago now. I recently purchased a 40d and 17-40. I still have a lot to learn, and am very excited to learn and grow with a great forum!

I used to frequent apug.org/rangefinderfo​rum/etc but this place had a lot of good advice for where I'm headed so I'll be spending some time here.

I'm an architecture grad student at U of Michigan graduating this semester. I just sold off almost all of my large format system (arca 4x5) and am buying into Canon. In undergrad I taught myself on a Nikon F2 and later a Hasselblad 501CM, as I was always shooting on a tripod I decided that I should move up to large format for movements/etc: got a Sinar Norma, then tried a P and finally the arca but never got around to shooting as it was too much of a hassle so I moved in the other direction.

Little while ago I picked up a nex5 on a whim, then gave it to the wife and got a 5n with some legacy lenses. Recently read about the conorus NEX-EF adapter and decided to sell off my LF kit I wasn't using and pick up the 24mm TS-E II with the intention of using it on the 5n until a FF evil came out.

Well, I couldn't resist and so now I'm selling off everything else and going all in with Canon! My kit:

Camera:
5D mk ii kit with 24-105L (selling the 24-105)

I'm limiting myself to just 2 lenses, but nice ones:
24mm TS-E II and 1.4x mk iii extender
85mm 1.2L II (arrives wed!)

Figures this will give me movements for architecture, and 85 for people.

I'm also eager to learn flash("strobist") as it was something I never tried with film as I was an available light snob (but really just didn't want to learn on film)

ST-E2 (first picked this up just to assist AF with the 85)
430EX II
LP120 x2
LP605 stands + LP heads
Marumi vari-nd (1-9 stop reduction to allow me to keep the 85 open with off camera flash)

Throwing everything in a hazard 4 plan b evac photo recon (what a name!) sling pack.

Just wanted to introduce myself before I put the 24-105L up for sale!

Cheers,

Alexander
