I'm new to DSLR's (Rebel owner) and am learning a lot from the posters here ...thanks to all the generous souls posting tips and answering queries .

Thing is, there are many terms used in dslr that I don't understand (not the basic stuff, I've used slrs before, but CHDK? Huh?) etc.

Would anyone consider making a sticky explaining these terms? Would be a great help to newbies like me.

Cheers to everyone

This is a good glossary, although from a rival board.

BTW, CHDK is the name of a firmware hack for some Canon P&S's.
