    I was just searching for a photography forum and found this one. I just got into photography about a year ago and bought a simple point and shoot digital camera (Minolta X20 - don't laugh!). I'm going to buy a 6.0 MP camera today (Casio QV-R61) because my old camera's images are soft and I'd like better quality ones. I hope I can join in the photography here on the forum. Is anyone else here the same as me, in that they don't have one of those big, expensive cameras? Anyone have a Casio QV-R61, if so, what do you think of it?

    Welcome to TPF.
    I think you will find lots of people here just like you - so don't worry.

    Howdy & Welcome to the forum!
    It really doesn't matter what kind of camera you have. Most of the actual work of taking a picture comes from the eye of the photographer!

    Welcome in chrism.


    One reason I like this place so much is nobody rates you on the camera you use. :D
    Enjoy your stay.

    I assumed everyone on here has a professional photographer's SLR or something and I've got a 6 MP P&S. :lol:

    Is it not considered to be less professional and not as good a photographer if a point and shoot camera that selects the settings automatically is used?

    Some of the people here do pinhole photography - I've made a few pinhole cameras from shoeboxes myself.
    It's not what you use, it's how you use it. We'd still like you if you used a disposable ;-)
