hey everyone, stumbled across the forum here. looks top notch. Ive already spent quite a lot of time searching through the wealth of information available. I could get lost for hours, its great. Im totally new to photography but have had an interest for many years. Ive gone through a number of digital cameras that have got the job done, but Im looking for something a bit more for the serious hobbyist. It was the picture below that got me thinking about it again. A friend and I were just messing around on a pretty day, but I thought the shot came out really well and got me searching on the net for info. The new sony alpha cam has got my attention, but I knew I needed a place like this to research before making any large purchase. Glad I found you guys and look forward to chatting and learning from you all!
