Hey Everybody ! My name is Denny and I found out about this forum on Canon's website. I have always used a Canon Point-N-Shoot (S5 Is) for all of my outdoor/ landscape photos and just moved up to my first DSLR (a T3). I hope to learn a few things on here and as I get better with the T3 share some things too !

Hi Raj here - I dabble a little bit in all sorts of photography, but more into landscape, close-ups and portraiture. Glad to join up this forum to keep updated on things and obviously to learn from everyone out there.

Wayne here, hailing in from Sunny South Florida where I operate a production company that specializes in HD video production plus working as contract videographers for a number of local and national new services.
While we don’t use Canon HDSLR’s for video preferring to utilize full size shoulder mounted camcorders we do have a couple of 1D’s for stills and a goodly amount of Canon office products.
With a background in broadcast engineering and television production I can hopefully provide some assistance across the various boards found here.
That stated, now go forth and produce content… ;-)

KP from POTN here. I dabble in a lot of things related to computers, cameras, broadcast, and sound. There's almost nothing about photography I don't know about, but I still always manage to learn new things. My professional photography consists of art reproduction.
I also don't use Canon's HDSLR or camcorders for video, and have the most experience with full-size Pannies, also the most important part of video is audio.
We need more educated people behind the shutters.

Yoohoo another photography forum but I have high hopes for something that would appear to be run by the mother corp. Name is Sheldon Simpson and I am full time photographer from Canada. Gear wise I have a multitude of bodies but prefer to stick with the 1 series bodies and I have every version of these from the MKII's. I have a long list of glass from the 600 f/4 down to the 14mm. Professionally I stick with commercial work though I will shoot anything that comes my way. I have a solid list of cients that keep me just busy enough. Personally I prefer shooting wildlife, hence the 600 and 500 lenses but it seems I don't have enough time to do that these days.

I'm Jonathan. Still photos and (DSLR) video shooter from California.
I'm only here for the swag.
There's swag, right?
You didn't get your official Canon red velvet cake yet? They delivered one to me via courier a few hours after I signed up!

Hello from Wisconsin! I've been shooting Canon for about 35 years. My first Canon was a Canonflex: Heavy as a boat anchor and built like a tank (roommate knocked it off the roof of a pickup truck onto asphalt and other than a scuff on the side, no damage - it still works today!).
My biggest regret with photography is not embracing digital when it first came out. I really sort of put my camera away for several years. My wife purchased a D30 when they first hit the market; I only shot a few images with it over the years and she used it like a point and shoot on trips.
Not sure what sparked it, but I have the fire again in a big way!
I love shooting landscapes and am now working toward becoming a good portrait photographer.
PS. My screen name is Denny_Crane, because my wife tells me that I sometimes act like I have the same form of "Mad Cow Disease" as Denny Crane from the TV show.
