Hello all, I am new to this forum and relatively new to photography. Last year I bought a new digital camera for a trip that my wife and I were taking to Rome. We did some research and settled on a Sony Mavica CD500 which is an awesome 5 megapixel camera that uses mini cds for storage instead of memory cards since we would not have access to my laptop abroad. Anyway, I mainly bought it with the intention of just bringing back snapshots, but wanted a hi-resolution camera because you get what you pay for. I took over 1000 pics while in Italy for 2 weeks, and my pics came out much better than just snap shots, and everyone has been amazed with the quality of the pics. I've been taking more and more pictures and recently took a trip to New England to see fall foliage, light houses, etc. and took my wife's 35mm camera along. It's an old Pentax ME probably 20 years old or more. It was the first time that I had used a 35mm and found that I actually enjoy using it more than the digital, with the exception of paying to develop all pics instead of select ones. Anyway, I would like to look into getting a more up to date full featured 35mm to work with and was looking for recommendations. I am looking in the $400 or less range, and right now think that the Canon EOS Ti or T2 looks pretty good. I have been primarily focused on outdoor scenery, waterfalls, sunrise, sunset, foliage, etc. but also like playing around with different shutter speed pics like elapsed photos or still action pics. Any suggestions? Sorry for the long post, but it's my first, so might as well make it count. Thanks!
