    Hi All,

    I have only just joined and this is my first post so apologies if this has been asked previously.:)

    Can anyone recommend any websites offering useful tips for beginners? I've had a good google and search of this forum but there are so many i don't want to miss the good ones!

    I've just bought my first dslr - a second hand Nikon D80 with kit 18-135 from Ebay - hopefully a bargain but time will tell!

    I don't have a particular interest for the camera (e.g. motorsport, wildlife etc). My main intention is to take loads of pics of my little son and anything else I happen to see!

    Thanks,

    Bream.

    I found Stop Shooting Auto! very good when I got my first DSLR last year. Explains all the basics like aperature, shutter speed, dof, f stops, exposure etc. Good place to start!

    Cheers for the recommendations - I'll make sure I take a look over the next few days!

    There does seem to be plenty of info - I just need to get stuck in.

    Thanks.
