Ah........a business degree might just help you with your plan...

Regardless, at least you had the humility and sense to ask for help and advice, which won't do you any harm at all. Once again, good luck with your chosen path!

I have a slightly used but otherwise good Olympus, you can have really cheap. May need a few minor adjustments, and a little re-assembly. But that should be no problem, if Houdini is a family relative.

Photo enclosed.

Re: Where Do I Start?

Not really! it belonged to one of my grand-daughters, and it just quit. So my son and I decided to fix it.

It seemed the more we worked on it the worse it got!. This is where we decided that it was useless to proceed any further, since nothing was left to take apart.

Re: Where Do I Start?

very tempting offer Steve .......after careful consideration I decided to go with the Canon XTi (or 400D in the UK I think....) I got it a few days ago and am suffering from lack of sleep!! Having a blast trying to figure out all of the functions....does anybody know of a good (also free) on-line tutorial or anythihng similar? I will post some of my shots to get some feedback as soon as I work up the nerve.....gotta go and play with my new baby!
