Started with an F-1, in the early '70's, then an AE-1, Elan 7E, D-30, 20-D, 1-DN Mark III, 1-DN Mark IV. Also have an EOS M as a pocket camera. Do a lot of event and civic work but shoot birds for my own enjoyment. Teach basic Digital Photography and am president of a local photo club. I am a retired business manager and trainer who has always enjoyed photography and now has the time and money to indulge myself. I don't charge for photographs and provide 1000's of them a year to local non-profit and civic groups. Have had photos published in a number of publications and websites including USA Today and NBC News. I enjoy the opportunity to be shooting all the time without having to try and please anyone but myself.

I am John Summerfield, I live in Mandurah.
Whare is Mandurah? There's only one, ask Google Maps.
My first Canon was an EOS 630, my latest two, bought in the past 12 monthes, are a 60D and a 6D. I am here because I am really really cross with the software that shipped with the 6D. Particularly Imagebrowser.

A little bit late for my introduction, but what the heck.
I'm a Powershot SX50 HS owner and a photography enthusiast for a little over 30 years now. Even though I've embraced the digital age, I'm still a huge fan of film photography and miss the days of processing film and photos in the dark room. I've got a special interest in shooting black and white, as well as infrared. I also shoot landscapes almost exclusively. I've got a sister and brother-in-law who are also enthusiasts, and they're Canon owners as well with a T3 and 5D Mk.III, respectively.
I'm no stranger to forums, and in fact I'm an Administrator on two auto forums myself. I'm really passionate about photography, and also about helping others out, and I'll always do what I can to help out other members here when I can. Thanks for having me on board!

Hi all! I'm a brand new member to the Canon Family after using a Sony digital camera for a couple of years. I now own a Rebel T3/1100D, also purchased extra a 75-300mm zoom lens, and I'm still learning all the great features about this camera.
Years ago, I owned a Minolta (remember them?) SLR and was seriously into Nature Photography, would shoot slides, critique them on a screen w/ a slide projector and then send off the slides for prints. I would mat them myself and if I was lucky enough, even sold a few at craft shows. LOL, those were the days....kind of glad they're gone, it was a lot of work for me. My camera body broke one day so after a break from photography, I moved on into the digital age (like I had a choice...lol).
Looking forward to being a member of this forum and hope to learn lot's of useful information while I'm learning how to use my new Canon camera! Nice meeting you all!

Hi there, my name is Shannon and I just recently started up a photography business with the help of what I like to call Canondorf, my 5D MK III. I have been shooting for less than a year, I have about 5 months of shooting experience in the business sense. I've had a DSLR since 2011, however, due to unfortunate personal issues, I wasn't able to really use my camera until just last year.
http://www.facebook.com/wtfocusphotography <-- most of my stuff can be found here
www.hello-focus.com <-- some stuff can be found here, I just started this website
I'd love some feedback on my work if anyone cares.
I guess I should list my gear. It seems like a popular thing to do.
Canon 5D Mark III
15 2.8 fisheye
50 1.8 (selling)
50 1.4 (acquiring Tuesday)
85 1.8 (selling)
100 2.8 Macro
70-200L IS USM II (taking FOREVER to arrive in the mail [ordered it Friday, 2 days ago, haha])
I have a Speedlite that I don't use, the 430EXII? I don't know, but those numbers and letters look nice together, so I'm going to assume that might be name of my Speedlite. I also recently acquired an old film camera, Canon, of course, and I'm looking forward to working with it and hope that it improves my photography.
Outside of the Canon stuff, I am a huge dork and I like Zelda, but I like Link more, hence the name.
Any questions? Just ask.

Hi my name is Gerwin and I'm from the Netherlands. I use Canon for over 6 years now. Started with an old analog camera from my father, and later on bought my own digital camera. I love to make pictures when I travel, with special interrest in the people in other countries and their habbits, and the landscapes.

After reading some of the intros from other forum users, I may be in the wrong place. I just retired and have been taking pictures of the grandkids and family functions for quite a few years. I have been a point and shoot person, but now that I am retired I wanted to get more involved in photos. I just bought a G15 to start to bridge the gap from point and shoot into something better. I guess I will be reading a lot, and saying very little until I get more experience. If anyone has any advice to give me, I am all ears. Oh, by the way, I go by the handle "Nubber". Hope to learn a lot here.
