Talking Hi, just starting out

Hi everyone,

I bought my first DSLR 2 weeks ago and have yet to take it out for a decent test drive; but am hoping to do so this weekend. We have our local village Christmas festivities on, so I am hoping to capture the atmosphere. I decided to go for the Sony A200K, after looking at this and the Nikon D40; so hopefully I have made the right choice. I did manage to get it out of the box and go clicking around my house with my son playing with the dog; so it definitely isn't that intimidating. I don't understand about aperture and stuff like that yet; but I do love taking sports photo's as I am a coach and competitive wheelchair athlete.

It looks like a great site, so I am looking forward to learning much

Re: Hi, just starting out

Well done for taking the plunge with your new dSLR Sam. The Alpha 200 is an excellent camera which I am sure will bring you a lot of enjoyment and good pictures.

Welcome to Pixalo where we hope you will find all the help and support you need to move forward in your hobby.

Cheers,
Rob
