Just joined this forum - actually never seen the feature in the menu that you guys also had a forum, I just stumbleded upon it while searching for something related to the new Nikon D3200, and one of the first results directed me here.
However, I have been using this sites reviews for quite a few months now, while I've been trying to decide if I should go Canon or Nikon (note, this is not to start a fanwar).
A little about myself, I am working in the architectural technology field, with great interest in sustainability, architecture, computer-aided design programs, and entrepreneurship.
I also have great interest in photography, and got my first camera as 8 years old (a reusable one though, but still!). Since then it's only been compact cameras that I've been using, until I last year went for a 2 month backpacking trip to S.E. Asia. Here I brought along a friends Canon EOS1000D, which I must admit was too big to carry around everywhere - a compact might have come in handy instead.
But that was really what got me interested in photography, and I think it was a little over 1400 pictures me and my girlfriend shot during the almost 2 months abroad, and there were some really nice ones among.
Yes, that's me, and I will probably be reading your next post, seeing as I am quite the forum-browser too.
