    Hey there! My name is Meghan, i'm new to the forum and to the photography world. I have been interested in photography for a long time just haven't had really had an adequate camera to take relatively good pictures! Currently i only own an old 'point and shoot' camera (Nikon Coolpix L2) however i'm looking at getting the Nikon D3000(will be my first DSLR/SLR), perhaps the D5000 but that may be a little above my budget as a senior high school student! We'll see though, i think the differences and price are definitatley worth it, i just don't know if i would actually use the video part! Definitely a nice added on feature to have but i could always still use my old L2 for any videos. Anyway, for now i'm just trying to get familiar with the terms and lenses etc. Looking forward to learning more and hopefully learning some nice techniques regarding taking better photos when i get my DSLR. I am fairly experienced with photoshop so thats a bonus too!

    How's it goin' eh?!

    Welcome to TPF.

    PS
    Look into a D40 or D60 instead of the D3000 if the D5000 isn't going to happen.

    Thanks. I have looked at the D40 and D60 online a bit, aren't those older models though?

    Yeah, but the D3000 is the same 'old' technology.

    Check out Ken Rockwell's side by side test of the D40 versus the D3000--the D3000 is actually not quite as good an imager as the older D40 and D60 models. The D3000 seems to be one of the weaker Nikon bodies in years.

    I looked at the d3000, d5000 and the d60... i beleive it was.... or maybe it was the d90..... but yea i put the d3000 on hold. I'm going to think about it a little more.
