No offense to your sister but she sure has waited a looooooong time to go digital. IOW, there's some preconceptions going on there that might make her handling your (her) D90 different than the typical first-time DSLR owner. She just needs to shoot the pee out of it (like I said, on Auto-without-the-flash) just to even get used to watching the image show up on the LCD. Miraculous! She just shoots and shoots and shoots, maybe you download her SD card for her with her experiments and she sees what she got. Baby steps ya know?

Then there's post processing.

Yeah. Not sure why she held out so long.

As for preconceptions . . . the first thing she asked about the camera was . . . does it shoot manual. So I told her . . . you can turn all the auto stuff off! She seemed happy with that . . . LOL.

I think she's going to have loads of fun!  

Thanks again!
