Have had my D5100 for a few months now and am getting to know it.
Have had compacts and a Nikon film SLR in the past, but am still amazed at being able to take so many pictures. Its great to be able to experiment to see how the camera works without it costing fortune in developing costs. I suppose it will eventually cost a fortune in mass storage if I keep shooting as much as I am.
I have also been experimenting with video and its great that one camera does it all. I have already picked up some good tips here and I look forward to improving my technique and my eye in the future.
Hello Kieran and welcome to the forum family. Edinburgh is on my short list of places to visit so I'm really looking forward to seeing some of your images. While I miss some aspects of shooting with film, I agree with you that its great to experiment without having to factor in developing costs. Glad you joined us!
