    Hello from Niagara Falls!

    Just stumbled onto the website looking for ways to make panorama photos of some photos I took this past weekend.

    And, now I think I'm hooked after looking around and seeing all of the information available here.

    And for a pretty short background. For the past I can't recall how many years (has to be over 15 years now), I've used a plain old 35mm Ricoh XR-P. Never had one bit of problem, never had it into the shop or anything. Managed to teach myself how to do a lot of different things to get the photos I wanted out of it by changing settings.

    Last Christmas, my wife picked up an Olympus D-560 for me. I love it for the most part, except for not having manual control at all. I think down the road I'll be picking up a digital SLR with manual settings for when i'm feeling all inspired to go beyond zoom-point-click.

    I'm going to have to fire up the scanner and get some prints scanned in to share with everyone.

    Welcome...I joined the crew only yesterday and it's true, you will find just about any subject on this site. And thank God I have found another Olympus user!
    I own the Evolt E-300 with a 14-45mm lens...
    Enjoy yourself!

    Well, not in Niagara Falls anymore.. just moved up to Toronto not too long ago. After growing tired of the Olympus (plus having problems with it thinking that my batteries were dead after 5-10 pictures, even though they were new batteries, or freshly recharged).. wifey stepped up to the plate yet again! I'm now a proud owner of a Canon Rebel XTi! Only have the kit lens so far, but looking at a Tamron that people seem to be raving about (I think its the 28-75mm, f/2.8 one). So far, I'm loving it. I've only taken it out once so far just to try things out in full auto mode, and can't wait for this weekend to go out again to catch some fall colors. I'm also looking for a decent telephoto lens at some point that I can take with me to hockey games. Needs to be pretty decent, since I can't pony up the cash to buy tickets lower than the nosebleeds.
