Hello,
Brand new here. Found this excellent site while searching for reviews and advice on buying my first digital camera. So I'm a bit of a rookie amongst all you guys (and girls maybe).
I will get in touch again as soon as I made up my mind.

Welkom Brand op het forum van Camera Labs!

... or for the non-Dutch members: Welcome Brand to the Camera Labs forum!

Good to have you join us! Do you still shoot film, given you're looking for a first digital camera? Any idea what you'll be getting?

Welcome to the forums, good to see another Dutchie :)

I kind of like how someone still shooting film considers himself a Noobie, when he's surrounded by lazy digital users :lol:

Thanks Bjorn, Citruspers and Gordon for your kind words.

Yes, I'm still shooting film. Well, I have to say: was shooting film. My camera's are gathering dust right now. I didn't touch them for quite some time.
That's why I'm looking for something digital now. To revive this hobby of mine. But simple, not too complicated. I am thinking of buying one of those superzoom compacts. After reading Gordon's reviews, however, I became more and more confused: Panasonic's FZ38, Canon's SX20 IS or SX1 IS, Sony's HX1? It's really hard to choose.

BTW: I was impressed by your portfolios. Great shots. And surprised by your great picture of the Uspenski Cathedral in Helsinki, Bjorn. My wife is from Finland, so I am rather familiar with this place. Nice to see that a fellow-countryman visited Helsinki as well. For most Dutch people Finland is Terra Incognita.

Thanks! I visited Finland in the fifth year of secondary school, and I absolutely loved it. The year before, a teacher who is also a priest at an orthodox church, with a long black robe and white beard, had joined the group of students, which resulted in some great shots too. Sadly though, he wasn't one of the teachers that went along with my group...
