Hello from Chattanooga
« on: September 15, 2013, 03:25:36 PM »
Hello all, just picked up a used T2i yesterday and can't believe how far technology has come from the days of the old match/needle 35mm SLRs.  Have had two point and shoots, a Nikon Coolpix and a Canon G9, in the past so I'm not totally ignorant, just partially ignorant.  I have much reading ahead and hope to learn some good information from the wise sages here at the 550D forum.

Welcome. They have came a far ways but basically the same. Aperture and shutter speed. There is a lot to learn and hope you post some pictures.

Welcome aboard! 

By the way, I am pretty sure there is a rule somewhere that says grandparents have the right to spoil their grand kids at will.  Might even be a law, I'm not sure.  ;)

Like armychris said; look forward to seeing some photos from ya!
Feel free to ask any questions you might have about your new acquisition too.  Odds are, someone will have the right answer but not me. I'm just here as the eye candy.  :o

Again, welcome!

Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Welcome aboard, don't be afraid to post your shots, I have, and have learnt so much from other commenting and even liking some of mine.
C&C always welcome. If you want to try re-editing any of my shots, feel free.
