    Hi i'm Fred, I am 21 years old and live on vancouver island in BC canada, I havn't been into photography that long but its been a really fun time. I have a nikon D90 digital and a nikon F65 film camera, and a few lenses, i will post what they are later if people are interested, and I would like to know if the choices I have made are decent. Colecting older cameras is something i've wanted to do for a really long time so i'm slowly workin on that, i picked up a petri FT 35mm camera for $15, its takes very good photos i was impressed, anyways that is all for now, i will repost here with the lenses i have with and maybe some of you could help. thanks again, look forward to getting to know some of you/learn from you guys!

    I would consider myself a beginer for sure, (did a stupid thing and got a credit card for just my camera gear, I just paid it off, but i wish i hadent got it, and just saved for it) so (this is for when i post my lenses and ****) yeah its alot, probably more then I need, but I was stupid, thanks again.

    thank you all for the welcome, Been away for the weekend lookin forward to catchin up on this site/readin/learning some stuff.

    aside from digital photography i do some film, i have a Nikon F65 (probably already said) and I am starting to get into colecting older cameras, preferbly working ones cause I use them aswell, I have and use my Petri FT, but this weekend i picked up a Asahi Pentax, Spotmatic SP II, its quiet awesome, but untested, i'm lookin forward to trying it out/sharing some shots.

    dont have pics of my D90 as it is my only digital right now. but I also have a minolta Hi-Matic AF2 that i grew up using and recieved as a gift and a (lol.) polaroid supercolor 635CL (do they still make the film packs for this thing)

    thats some kinda pointless reading, I dunno if people care but maybe i could get some input if my choices were alright on my gear, I dunno if people list what they have but I will (just the stuff I use on a more regular basis)
    *bodies*
    -Nikon D90 digital SLR
    -Nikon F65 Film SLR
    *lenses*
    -AF-S Nikkor 18-105mm VR (kit with D90)
    -AF Nikkor 28-80mm (kit with F65)
    -AF Nikkor 50mm 1:1.8 D
    -Vivitar 400mm 1:5.6
    and I have lenses in route to me
    -Tamron Telephoto AF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 LD
    -Sigma 18-50mm f/3.5-5.6 DC HSM High Speed Zoom Autofocus
    *tripod/misc*
    -Velbon PH-157Q
    -Nikon wireless remote

    I've been really wanting to get into macro photography, but all around stuff too, i'm really not to sure what lense would be best to do macro, i got the Tamron thinking it owuld be the best but still have no tried it as i dont have it in my hands yet. any help/info would be great, thanks again, you all seem to be a great bunch
