"I'm thinking of buying my first DLSLR ,should I buy a Nikon or a Canon and what lenses do I need ? "/quote]

I have just ordered the brochure for the D40x at the top of the forum so I think that will help me some.

As for weird people I am used to them I own sled dogs so that counts me as weired so I should fit right in LOL

beware of anybody who says its all true, in reality Geoff is locked away in the Pinetrees old folks home in Connor Downs, we visit him once a week to take him his saffon bun , it takes him 7 days to get one eaten as the matron confiscated his false teeth after he bit the nurse on the bum!!!

Geoff was also locked in the isolation wing after crossing the road to the pasty farm, he started a riot about the pastys not being as good as his mothers down in Newlyn, they also confiscated his Nikons after he tried to lure the nurse into posing for naughty postcard shots

the postcards ofthe nurses were to top us his pension fund after white star lines wouldnt give him compensation for the lose of his relative in the titanic sinking, so it how how old he is really, he could be the oldest man in Cornwall hes had 5 telegrams from the Queen since his 100th birthday, he even owns the patent to Lemon drizzle cake, if you check the patent offce it was taken out by a Geoff Hichens in 1922 in camborne patent office , for the sum of 1 shilling and 6 pence

nah i am younger and prettier than him by far, can still ride my motorcycle!! ,I have to take him his saffron bun, thats how I know him, when I was a whippersnapper working for the West Briton group, Geoff was the old man of st Ives even back in the 1970`s, and the old folks home is only one mile up the road from me , So we have to keep the old guy happy, nobody else visits him after the incident , say no more about that but it made the nationals

Hi Jill and welcome.
I've not got a clue what I'm doing either and I'm working with the Kodak Easyshare 340 too.
They're a great bunch on here. Very helpful and kind. Hope you enjoy.

riding hat Digi ???

I got rid of a kawasaki 1100 zephyer to buy the drz, it was a great bike 140mph plus with no fairing, but i could hardly ever use it the roads are so busy in Cornwall, and when not busy wet, so bought the drz for fun off and on road

" Riding hat Digi " ?

LOL Paul. I am on about your picture called
Pony Love " lol

yep had a go myself on an 1100 when they first came out. Fantastic bike but still miss my 750z very much. The roads round here are the same as where you are either too wet, too busy or too icy because I live at altitude.
