Tips on how to use a digital SLR camera

A collection of tips teaching how to use a digital SLR camera. All the tips (at least the ones I read) are written using non-technical language, very easy to understand and relate to real life experience. I think I'm going to come back to this one time and again.

Great link, but remember: digital camera <> digital SLR camera Most people will not get an SLR but a compact camera for Christmas (as the old-guy in the picture). To be able to use an compact camera, one needs other skills. And if you've got an SLR for Christmas (lucky you) then remember to find a money-stream a.s.a.p. since using an SLR sucks up all your money! Better lenses, better tripod, bigger bag, bigger harddisk, better printer, another memorycard, no wait: an imagetank, better photo-editing software (Elements is called Elements for a reason), bigger computermonitor, drawing-tablet for easier retouching, etc.etc. I know, since I'm having my second DSLR already ;-)

I totally agree with you. I got Nikon D80 and enjoying it so far. And yes, I agree with you on the money stream part of it. D80 comes with a great 18-135 lens. I have a 100-300 mm from my previous Nikon N70 and I've bought a Manfrotto tripod & bigger bag. Already bought 2 2GB cards (btw CircuitCity is selling them for $34.99 this week). I definitely expect more money in the weeks to come.

Dig Photog school is a great resource. I also found a lot of help (in the form of video tutorials) here: http://www.mindbites.com/person/5664-bdratty
