    Hi! I'm new too...signed up a few hours after you. A Cannon man...suppose I'll forgive you! :) I am a Nikon snob...all my cameras (even my wee pocket ones) are Nikon. They have awesome customer service. :)

    What do you like to shoot? and I have to ask where your name came from?

    Thanks for more welcomes. And yes canon it is for me. My first dslr i had for a couple of weeks was a nikon d100, i liked it a lot but for some reason when i picked up a canon in the store i just felt more comfortable with it. I think theyre both great in their own ways though.

    I like to shoot everything and anything, at first i likes to shoot nature and inadament objects but it seems im forces to shoot more people cuz theyre the ones with money :) lol but i found that i really love it just as much. However if i had a macro lens, that would be my favorite choice. I like miniature things! As far as the name. I Love pandas! Most of the things i own are panda themed (even my car) i have some panda tattoos and the car club i belonged to everyone knew me as mr panda. So its pretty much a description of myself.
