Hello - my first DSLR is on it's way!

Hello everyone

I've been lusting after a DSLR for years now but have never had the spare funds. My 30th birthday is coming up and my friend who is a professional photographer is selling one of her old DSLR bodies - so my family have kindly offered to buy it me for my birthday!

Only trouble is - I now have to wait until JUNE for it! lol.

I've been into gig photography for a while, just as a hobby, and have 2 film SLRs already - I'm hoping that the basic knowledge I have with these is going to help me in the big scary world of digital SLRs! (the digital compact I have at the moment is the Fuji E900 that I've had for a few years now.)

So I just thought I'd pop in and say Hi - I'll be mooching around for a little while before my camera arrives and looking for recommendations on lenses etc - I hope you don't mind lots of questions!

That's all from me

Zoe

Welcome Zoe, I think half to three quarters of the Digital imaging is in P&P so if you do any of that now with the compact ,you are half way there.
