I am a amiture photographer, but I really love taking pictures. I took a black and white class, a color class and digital photography class. I recently bought a Fuji S9000, it is quite a nice camera. It has all the features of a SLR camera, but it is not a digital SLR. Of course it is a digital. My SLR camera is a Nikon N80, and it takes beautiful pictures. Well, it helps me take beautiful picutures. I love my digital camera for many reasons, but I still think I would rather U my SLR.
