Hello folks. I thought I might as well join up since this site and forum was partly instrumental in my recent purchase of a Nikon D80, my first DSLR. I trawled the internet for weeks gathering as much info as possible before taking the plunge and the review here helped a lot. Many thanks Gordon. Having said that the wee bit in the video review concerning the D80's ability to create a "slideshow" with "music" almost turned me against the camera. I have never used the feature yet and I doubt I ever will.

I guess I'll hang around the Nikon forum mainly although I usually find something to say on virtually any subject, just ask the wife, lol. Seriously, I'll be asking lots of questions (I can sense one concerning colour modes already) and if I can be of help to anyone please feel free to ask.

I mainly shoot landscapes but I'm willing to try anything really. Travelling is close to my heart too and we're just back from a trip to Corsica (beautiful island btw).

That's enough just now. Can't think of anything else to say at the moment.

Hi Zorro, welcome to the Cameralabs forums - and I'm glad we could be of help concerning your D80 purchase!

Let us know how you get on with your D80...

Gordon

When you're from Scotland, place some hints and tips where Scotland is the most "photographic", when is the best time and what opportunities are there for people with an open eye...
Place your remarks and some sample shots in the "Travel photography"-section.

Coming right up...

...actually, not really. Kinda minced tonight. I would feel bad too, because I haven't really got much to show of Scotland as of yet. That will change though.

Just a quick word - I'm dropping using 'Gordon' to sign off my posts. I was trying to help someone out just there and realized I could easily be confused with someone who really does know something about photography.

I'm cool with 'Zorro', if everyone else is.

Zorro.

Zorro is cool!
Too many Gordons around here would be a bit confusing :twisted:

Zorro certainly is cool. I'm kinda wishing I'd chosen a cooler name now!

Haha! Excellent!

At least you didn't have to endure 2 hours of Scottish Country Dancing every week at school. See if you can guess what wasn't my favourite tune.

Still, the therapy has worked by now, mostly.

I share your pain Zorro! I may have been schooled in North West England, but come from Scottish parentage (with annual holidays in Nairn!), so am well aware of the horror of which you speak!

Looking forward to your Scotland photo tips! (along with any tips for avoiding the midges! We have an equivalent down here with the sandfly - nasty little beggars!)

I've already supplied a great big tip for avoiding midges...Corsica!
