Brand new to the forums as well as to photography. Last night I just ordered a Kodak EasyShare z915 which will be in my hands by the 7th at the very latest. Now I know its a cheap point and click camera, but im on a really tight budget right now unfortunately. But I do know that its the photographer and not the camera that makes a good photo (though a good camera does indeed help). I ordered the z915 because of all the P&C camera's under $200, that one gave me full controls of aperture and shutter speed and everything else. So im hoping for the best from what it is. Anyways. I hope I don't get bashed too hard for having cheap equipment and for being a total noob and not knowing all the technicality's and lingo as of just yet as well as not taking good pictures yet. But thats why I registered here... To learn.
