I'm an extremely enthusiastic camera tinkerer, gear-head, and overall fiddler. I like playing with cool new things, or old things, or things in-between. Occasionally, I even get enough time to take photographs - check my Smugmug or Flickr for more photos, or explore the posts on this site..
I've been into photography in a serious way since March of 2008, shortly after my son was born. I was tired of the dog-slow performance of my P&S (point and shoot) at the time, so I trained myself up on the basics of DSLR lingo and went from there.
I have owned a multitude of systems (because a camera body can't take a photo without a lens), sometimes multiple times! There is no "best" system - it's what fits your needs at the time. They're all great, with their own quirks as well.
