    Expecting it by Thursday (Friday to you ... ) ... it was shipped last Friday morning and normal shipping is 4 or 5 business days.

    Taking a 9 day holiday early next month, so I want to be somewhat proficient with it before we head out.

    How long did it take you to get pretty familiar with your new DSLR?

    Krummiest - I'm only just about familiar with it. But I used the pre-arranged programs as I can't figure out manual shutter fiddling (life's too short, for me at least). Most SLRs come with "portrait, landscape, children, night scenes, et cetera" ... I use these until I can be bothered to "do it alone".

    CT,

    Note:
    The organ was built in Hala Stulecia by Sauer, 1911-1913. But in 1950 it was removed to the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. (picture in my previous post)

    Here you can find some pictures and info (only in Polish).

    Here you can find a video.

    And here's another video.

    Thats a weird disposition of stops - No 16' foundation on the great? But three 32' in the pedal?

    Well, the first "ceremonial" pictures from my Nikon D40 are posted in the forum Gallery on this link:new pictures. Still getting used to this new machine, but very pleased with these first results. These were using the full automatic mode and the 18-55mm Nikkor lens.

    Hi CT64,

    SLR Camera is good choice for photography.

    Here are some advantages:

    SLR cameras derive from viewing and focusing the image through the attached lens. Most other types of cameras do not have this function.The variety of lenses also allows for the camera to be used and adapted in many different situations.This provides the photographer with considerably more control (i.e., how the image is viewed and framed).

    Thanx,

    _____________

    Hi James - welcome to the forum.

    Your comments are spot on - I had done considerable research before purchasing my SLR and I couldn't be happier. I've posted some photos here, if you snoop around you'll find them.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
    —Albert Einstein.
