O wise ones - I seek your wisdom and experience... can you recommend any good starter resources for digi photography - something along the lines of a dummies guide i guess. Any links etc would be gratefully received. Thanks

I had a very 'oh noob!' moment last week..... I didn't realise that during a bulb exposure, it counted the time on the upper-LCD.
I'd been counting in my head

It's always pitch black when I use it, how would I know. Haha
Rarely use it though.

^^^ Shit, does it?! And to think I was wrapped to finally have a body with a backlit LCD too, yet I never used it for this either. Oh well, don't like touching the camera during a bulb exposure anyway, and I have a third-party remote that allows one set any shutter duration or interval between shots (which I should one day use for a hack stop motion vid like the other cool kidz on here have been up to).

He can't remember a promise due to his sister and father getting violently murdered in front of him about twenty minutes after making said promise in some rather guilt-inducing circumstances? That bastard. Guess I have to kick his ass now.

yeah, I can't see its purpose either.
Would be cool if the LCD illumination bottom (for top) stayed on during bulb.

Cheers Nismo and Rancho - I'll check them out. I better start reading as everything from Hemerage's post down may have well been written in Arabic

Maybe less arabic
