Hey all...
New to the board and new to DSLR photography (I've used the point-and-shoot and conventional film cameras in the past). I actually just purchased my first DSLR the other day online (Nikon D80), just waiting for it to arrive. I'll be taking it to San Diego next week to break her in... any tips for shooting golf? Fair enough, its hard to give out pointers without knowing more details, but I was wondering if there were some general tips that you could provide.
Thanks in advance, I'll post some of my results ASAP!

A warm welcome to the CameraLabs forums and congratulations on your choice.

Tips: Always wait until the top of the back swing before pressing the shutter, preferably using fill-in flash. If you are in continuous mode you should get a few quite interesting shots before you get thrown out. :P :lol: :lol: 8)

Bob.

In my experience and just from watching golf on TV and such, some golfers might get mad when you take a picture during their swing.

Just a warning that might not be needed :wink:

I'd only be shooting during the practice rounds - amateur photography is permitted during those rounds. Thanks for the welcome and the tips so far!

Dont worry the D80's Shutter is crisp and quiet.
