    Thats right, it's on its way here but I just couldn't resist going ahead and posting my intro. I'm just a Mom who likes to photo her kids and now EVERYTHING. I have been using a little sony cybershot (go ahead laugh) and my husband thought it time I move up in the world so he ordered me a Nikon D80. Needless to say I have everything and then some to learn so your critique and brutal honesty are always welcome.

    Welcome! Try to make your photos larger so we can see more detail. It is hard to critique with such a small size even on my 22" monitor.

    My Father had an Argus while stationed in Alaska during the Korean War.
    I still have his slides from there.

    No it's not, the Brick was and still is a venerable piece of equipment that will take perfectly fine pictures and also serve as a self-defense implement. I wouldn't want to be coshed by one! I have a nice C4 that took outstanding pictures as well, until the rewind gears got stripped. :mrgreen:

    hah, you're right. my 30D was 1600 body only and i'm in college. credit card dept came fast. then i bought the 17-85 efs lens and that was another 600. my school required us to buy them so that was good i guess...can't get a degree in photography without a camera. or could you..hm..
