Welcome to the Large Format Photography Forum, Dez.

You'll note that the focus of the forum is on 4x5 or larger film (view cameras and the like), or medium format backs (film or digital) on view cameras. DSLR topics are generally off-topic here.

Unless of course you stitch together a cache of frames :D

Most photo forums are more about equipment than anything else, but you can find help and useful info on the better ones. Here a few decent websites, etc.

http://photo.net/ not the greatest but the biggest and there are some good folks on it (and some freaking lunatics too.)

http://www.bythom.com/ Nikon dSLR info

http://www.fredmiranda.com/ active, geeky forum

http://www.dpreview.com/ good reviews and news, crazy forum though

http://www.robgalbraith.com/ more professional

http://www.sportshooter.com/ if you're into that

http://www.luminous-landscape.com/ worth a look

http://www.photoshopnews.com/ software news

and thousands more...

As with any forum, don't trust that what people write is correct or true....

Good Luck
