Hello Everyone

22 Jul 2009 10:52PM
My name is Nigel and like most people have had a point & shoot camera for many years, replacing them probably ever three or four years, never really taking any notice of any setting other than 'Auto', well we bought a Samsung Digimax L80 from Amazon about two and a half years ago for a trip to Peru and found it to be a great little camera.
About 6 weeks ago I was messin around with the different settings and discovered that I could take half decent close-up's of flowers and insects, and have been doing nothing else since Grin
I hope to upgrade to maybe a Panasonic DMC sometime next year and hope to learn a little more about 'proper' photography before then!

Realising that my compact could do super macros was the thing that really got me into photography too. Since then I have been published in a magazine, won a mobile phone, digital-SLR, 50, Edinburgh zoo tickets (!)

I hope you have a similar journey. Enjoy yourself.
