aspiring photographer

Discussion in 'Welcomes and Introductions' started by davect01, Jan 2, 2011.

  1. My name is Dave and I recently upgraded from a Point and Shoot to a Sony NEX.

    In the past couple of years I have begun learning the tricks of taking good photography, and was at the point of wanting something better to take pictures with. However I was intimidated with the size, weight and complexity of the camera systems I saw. Not being a professional photographer who takes a trip or excursion, just to take photos I did not want to be laden down with gear everywhere I went. I wanted something light that I can have with me when we go places and that is what I love about the new smaller professional systems and the Sony NEX in particular.

    In short, the NEX camera offers all I need to step up to nice pics, without the weight and complexity of larger systems.

    Dave thanks so much for coming over here to join us - and for jumping right in with both feet! Welcome!:biggrin:

    Since quite a few are still engaged in holiday activities or travels, things may be a bit slow here, but keep the faith because we've got some very helpful members onboard.:thumbup:
