6 posts in this topic

Well where to begin. After seeing all the sweet pictures in this forum. I decided and went through with, and bought my wife (and me) the Rebel XSI. This digital thing is completely new to me and her, so I will be looking for some advise or articles to read in the near future. That is when I figure out how to turn it on. Its like a little nuclear reactor. I just want to say thanks to you guys who post good infomation what what you think or what you have dealt with, it made the purchase easier. thanks again. there will be pictures soon to follow.

Definitely!!! There are no dumb questions here. Often, for me, some of the questions that are posted here are very helpful reminders.

Canon has an awesome line of hardware and glass. You should feel very confident in your investment.

Remember, learning is half of the fun!!

Congrats from this corner as well! Just one thing I learned the hard way, and I've heard it said many times since then, be patient with your new purchase! Don't expect the camera to do all the work even if it has a lot of bells and whistles. The first two weeks after I had my first dslr, the only thing I could think was "how am I going to justify spending that much money when it doesn't take pictures as good as my point and shoot?" There is a learning curve and you'll be pleased with yourself and the camera when you learn to make it work for you. It's a great tool, and it will make you a better photographer as you hone your skills! Enjoy!

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
