First Steps with a Digital SLR Camera

This series is designed to help those of you who are moving up to a digital SLR camera. The series has been based on questions that I’m regularly asked. As ever, get in touch if you have queries or would like something else covered. Each post is a blog format entry and so people are encouraged to enter into the discussion.

The series is gradually developing, so please be patient!

This RSS feed will keep you up to date with news and posts.
