Christmas is tomorrow its official

Hi all,

Well at last Santas workshop at Warehouse express has come up trumps after a four week wait, Santas helpers have been busy today and have confirmed that my new camera (EOS350D) has been put on the citylink sled, and that it will be delivered tomorrow, but he will only come if i go to bed early.

I have put a couple of carrots out for the citylink driver, and some nine month old mince pipes as a big thankyou.

This has reminded me how Christmas used to feel.

Mike

Well i said i would let you know how i got on.

The bad news first

Friday i felt like the boy that santa forgot

The good news, i eventually got my 350d and other bits and pieces yesterday evening.

Last night i managed to charge a battery fit it, put the cf card in, switch it on, put a lens on, and set the time, not bad eh

At this rate i will be posting pictures by xmas.

Really looking forward to getting cracking though.

Mike

To post pictures you use the [img] tags.

CT has kindly written a article explaining how, it can be viewed here


If you are having a problem it is far better to ask for help than to post like you have above, especially with your first post.

No need to apologise. There are guides and basic rules at the top of all the forums. They do vary according to which forum though and that's probably why you didin't stumble accross the article you needed.

Like I said, if you need any help just ask, either on the open forums or by private message to any of the staff.

I have printed off CT instructions and very forbidding they look to me...The only place I have pics stored is Fotopic and then not them all, I have some in a gallery the name of which I am not allowed to mention...I can't see how I can upload pics into your gallery .....
So it looks as though I'm going to give this one up...

Cheers DaveG you I must admit sound a happy member, Thanks for the Welcome from you... sorry I cant display some of my Pictures....I do spend a lot time out in Turkey and also Scotland and a little in Wales so I do have quite a collection...not brilliant I might add but I like em !! I have been into Photography since I was at School , we had our own darkroom etc and have followed it all my life now 72 having been on several courses as well....I find it a fascinating hobby although technically bugging my old brain now....I do publish pics on the other Forums so you will no doubt see some of them....Good Luck...

This really is the friendliest forum I have stumbled across, and a lot of useful knowledge will come from it if you stick around.

To start your own gallery, just send a private message to EosD and he will set it up for you.


Anyway, we are taking this off topic. Come on Mike....looking forward to seeing the results.


Oldboy, head over to the welcome forum and introduce yourself there. As Steve says, any problems/questions then ask, they will happily help out.

Once you have a password and are logged into Gallery, it's very simple and quick to add photos - you just upload them from your own PC into your album.

Well done mate..you had two lots of [img] tags though, I have deleted one set for you

Just one question though..and please don't take this the wrong way..but why post the picture in this forum, would it not be better and get the attention it deserves in its own thread in the photo sharing forum?
