Hello everyone, I have been posting around in the beginners forum, but figured I would post here to introduce myself. Here we go: My name is Matt and my home is in NYC, but I currently go to Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ. I loev to take pictures and always carried around my P&S until it broke in Disney (magical, huh?) and then my claim was denied as it was not their fault. I will be purchasing a Canon Rebel XTi today or tomorrow from an online retailer and am very excited to use it. I always loved to take pictures and I am sur this will increase my love of photography. People tell me that I won't want to carry it around, but I beg to differ as the XTi is extremely light and I probably won't even notice it there. Nice to meet everyone and hope to get to know everyone better!
