A couple of months ago, I decided that the outdoors are absolutely amazing where I live and I would like to photograph. Well, I spent these months looking around at equipment trying to learn as much as I can and to decide on what type of camera I would like to start with. Luckily, I have a prof. who is also a professional photographer. I ran some ideas buy him and he pointed me towards a photography class that I can take. I get home and look up the class and go to sign up, until I realize the class requires a SLR camera. I don't sign up for the class because I knew I didn't want to spend that kind of money on a camera that I couldn't use properly until next semester. To my suprise, I show up to class the next day to have my prof. hand me a camera bag with a Canon EOS 620 and a 630 body with a 75-300mm lens. He told me that he had had these for several years and he thought I could make better use of them now. Now to my question. Where could I find some good information about these cameras? I know there not new, or even digital, but will I still be able to learn from these? Sorry for the long 1st post, but I am a little excited about this whole deal. Thanks in advance for the advice.
