[ Edited ]

Hi,

My name is Jo Anne Otterstrom, I live in Oregon and love to shoot landscape photos...my digital rebel died after approx 35000 photos being shot with it....so I tried to find a similar camera...wound up with EOS 70D...so far so good...hope it will be as good as my rebel was....

I am retired and just enjoy shooting anything NOT man made..mountains, oceans, trees, flowers, wildlife, pets etc etc...

I am also in Medford, though I am moving to Klamath Falls in a couple weeks....I think you would like macro, you can use macro for landscape also, has very cool effect, love to shoot rivers in macro! not to mention close ups....have fun with your new camera, my first dslr was a digital rebel, and I plum wore it out!

I have a canon super zoom, though I have pretty much stopped using it...it is great out doors but if you're driving or in the back seat and shooting thru the glass....it will focus on the first thing it see, usually dirt , bugs or hard water spot...I dislike full auto in a camera.

joAnne ---why would you want to go to kfalls?  Very cold and can't grow a garden there.  However, if you like to shoot birds, there's allot of them, year round.

Re: Introduce yourself!

joanne you may like it..  Best bird photography in the lower 48, but not a nice place to live.  Check out eagle ridge from a boat, bald and golden eagles roost.  lots of babies (most years)  Also check the snow geese in Dec-jan you will be in awe.  Takes your breath away there are so many.  lots of old barns over there too, old potato farms, (about all that will grow)  too bad you're moving, would've been fun to have a buddy to go shoot w/, good luck over there in your move, hope it's not durring this heat.  Liz
