    A DIGITAL REBEL XT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Man I'm actually overwhelmed I'm so happy! I'll have pics on here just as fast as you can say

    I got it with the Canon EF 18-55 mm kit lens. It's fairly wide angle, which isn't bad. I like more closeups, but thats later in the new year (macro, possibly) :mrgreen:

    Now I won't post whore around here.....













    Ok maybe I will, but they'll have pics attached :lmao:. Cheers!

    Oh, and any advice anyone has for a new Canon EOS 350d user??

    Don't play with the Custom functions unless you know exactly what they do.

    Nope. Sorry. You and I are on the same path of only just learning how to use it! I got mine on 22 December... so I am a newbie to it, too.
    Congratulations on yours!

    Our German TV ad for the EOS 350D says "Komm spielen!" which means "Come play!"
    That is what I am doing! ;) :D :lol:

    Edit: Oops, only now I am reading Xmetal's advice which sounds so the contrary to what I am saying here, and well... I play with motifs and DOF and all that... I am just having fun using my "Rebel" ;).

    thanks for the tips! I've skimmed the whole manual, figured out what a lot of stuff does, now it's a matter of playing around with the settings. I've got a few pictures I'll upload but I'm not satisfied with them. They are just attempts to play with different settings.

    Man I love the ability to go black and white on here! :mrgreen:
