K boys, I looked at the stickies (as I know this is important in OT culture), but I'm such a noob I didn't even understand the terminology, I got looking at Canons on one of the links, and it was talking about effective megapixels, and fucking pixel density per square centimeter, and my mind exploded! So figured OT, or maybe just a few helpful members would be able to help me out with what I might be looking to buy. So, my parents want to buy me a nice camera, so all I know is that SLR is good, and I assume in this day in age an average guy like me would want a digital one. The thing I want it most for is I'm going to an Olympic hockey game in Vancouver, and I want to be able to take some sick pictures! Other than that I would use it just like the average consumer would want to use one, going to the zoo, going on vacation, the beach, parties, etc. So OT, help me out if you're bored, and if not, sorry to waste your time!
