Thanks Dave, this is great, I have only been a subscriber for a short time and, WOW!, I have already learned much with the help of so many good folks in here. I am liable to make a pest of myself here cause I have so much to learn.
I've owned a SLR since I was 16..(too many years ago to count!)
and am trying _very_hard to learn to like my digital. Somehow,I just like the film better..but then again,half of knowing how to get the best out of a digital is knowing your computer..and I'm sadly lacking there.
Thanks Dave for this forum...I will certianly hang out here.

I initially bought a minolta x125 in order to photograph and catalogue my hardy geranium collection. However, despite using a macro lens I was always disappointed with the quality of blues. Some films are more biased I know but you are always at the mercy of the processor. Much film was also wasted trying to capture that perfect likeness. Now I have a digital camera the colours are spot on for the blues, though I struggle sometimes with the magentas and reds. I use digital focus for close up work and have a plentiful supply of rechargable batteries. I would never go back to conventional photography.
