Hi Ann,.

I think you'll find photography a great creative outlet. I wish you the best. Generally people here are helpful but not always. You may have to put up with or ignore sarcasm and occasional rudeness. I found that the helpfulness of people has far out weighed the negatives..

Take care..

Mary..

As MaryGierth pointed out, most are helpful but sometimes rude. I recently was in a thread where I was the rude one. Still kicking myself..

I thought I would point out that there have been posts by people who are handicapped/disabled asking how to work around their particular disability while photographing..

I would be SO interested to hear from disabled photographers who especially have three probs. muscle wasting, cognitive depletion, who suffer extreme exhaustion.There simply HAS to be a way to take a good pic all things considered!It is 2am and have been reading my new camera's manual.thanks for the welcoming posts so far, no rudies! which is great.xAnn Ireland..

You already are ahead of many other newbiesyou are actually reading the manual. You would be surprised how many new camera owners write and ask questions about things that are explained in the first few pages of their owner's manual..

I suggest that you post mainly in the Beginners forum, as opposed to the open forum, when you have questions. We will do our best to explain things, and if we ever slip into unnecessary rudeness, feel free to tell us off. In no time at all, you will be ready to move up to the 450D etc. forum..

Enjoy your new camera!.

I am not familiar with your particular camera, but I have two suggestions which I would recommend to anyone..

1. Your camera probably has some manual controls. Get into the habit of checking what they are set to. Always start with the same button and work around to each control in the same order each time..

2. Keep a notebook. Include notes from your manual, from other books, from Dpreview, and other sources. I know I spent a lot of time with my notebook but it was worth it..

Good luck..

Failure to RTFM has precipitated much rudeness. It's great that you want to help yourself and not expect other people to RTFM for you. .

I agree. I stay away from the Open forum, as it's the venue of choice of some really nasty people. Much better group here!.

We will do our best toexplain things, and if we ever slip into unnecessary rudeness, feelfree to tell us off. In no time at all, you will be ready to move upto the 450D etc. forum..

Enjoy your new camera!.
