    After dozing a la Rip Van Winkle for 20 years re photography, I decided to jump back in with a digital setup. After much research I chose a Canon Powershot G2 and a Canon S900 printer, in conjunction with a Dell computer that I have. I'm still learning how to use the camera, and am wondering who else might be a convert to digital photography. Any insights or experiences to share? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Barry- Try the forums over at dpreview.com. They are much, much more active photography-wise. Enjoy!

    I am into Digital Photography enough to have started my own business www.photojockeys.com. Lots of potential in digital photography. I love to take photos and I am also looking into the S900 printer, how do you like yours?

    Thanks for the forum tip, Daniel!
    As for the S900, I just got it--it's been very highly reviewed wherever I look online. I hope to actually make some prints before long. [​IMG]

    Barry, you made a very good choice in cameras, as the G2 is considered by many as one of the best camera's available right now. I'll be buying the G2 in the next month or so and I can't wait.

    Having a G2 computer/printer setup creates the kind of digital darkroom and creative control I've always wanted to experiment with--no more relying on the local one-hour photo processor that overexposes everything. [​IMG] The G2 is good too because it has manual override. The recommended websites are excellent, and well worth exploring.

    I'd look into the getting the S9000 instead of the S900 as it can print up to 13x19 (borderless @ 81/2 x 11) and is only $120 more than the S900. My prints on my new one look AMAZING at 11x17.

    I am a fan of both film and digital photography. DPreview.com has outstanding forums and would be considered the parallel of hometheaterforum or avsforum in its respective field.
