Hi everyone, my name is Mike. I have been reading the forum for about a week or so now but just registered tonight. The info on the board helped me decide which camera to buy to be my first dlsr. I went with the Canon Rebel XS with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens which just showed up in the mail today. Hoping to get some time this weekend to play around with it and maybe get some photos posted.
