    Don't recall.... my memory doesn't go that far back.

    I think it was through another forum via a referenced link from a mutual member.

    I've been here for a few years, but I'm pretty sure it was google that first brought me here.

    I was on the Popular Photography Magazine forum (PopPhoto) for a while, but it seems changes were made when the new owners took over the magazine and the forum has been almost dormant for the longest while, with very few posts. Dying a slow death. Someone posted they were now enjoying this forum and another one. Tried the other one (Photochimps) and it too seemed fairly dead, having many posts that were dated a year or more ago with no updates. Like it here better!

    I sort of "discovered" TPF twice. :) My "official" join date was 2009... which is around the time I was debating over which camera to buy. I found the forum back then after numerous Google searches of reviews/recommendations of cameras, lenses, and other equipment pointed me here.

    I came, I read, I lurked... but eventually I made my decision, bought my camera, and promptly forgot about TPF.

    A few weeks ago, I was waiting for a to-go order by myself in a restaurant and I was playing with my iPhone searching for camera related apps and found the TPF app. I downloaded it... realized after poking around that it was very familiar and that I was already a member. By the way, I find it easier to respond to posts and see photos on my laptop but I've been using the iPhone app for quick check-ins now and then.
