    Hello,

    I'm 90% new at this photography thang! I took B&W photography in HS years ago. I am actually an extremely left-brained person so Its really hard for me to see the images a lot of you artistic photographers see so I have leaned towards photo journalism type stuff (if thats the correct term)

    Anywayz my first camera was a Canon PowerShot A75 I bought because I was getting deployed to Iraq so I wanted to save some memories. I had the camera with me almost all the time so it took a beating (somehow there is sand still embedded under the LCD from Kuwait). The lens dont close, the speaker(s) dont work, the shutter release gets stuck. Anyway (blah blah blah) it barely works now so I bought a Nikon D40 recently.

    I also hate camera straps with logos so I use 550 cord. Its not as uncomfortable as it looks plus I have a strong neck so I like it =)

    I guess this is sharing too much maybe... I just really enjoy taking pictures.

    Welcome to the forum.

    I didn't like the strap that came with my Canon...but mostly because it had hard edges and wasn't very comfortable. I recommend an Optec strap.

    At one time, we could order these straps with a logo from this forum...but I'm not sure if they still have any of those....but if you don't like the logos...then a black one would be fine...and much more comfortable than a cord :lol:
