      Where do I get Prints Made?
      http://www.bayphoto.com/
      http://www.reedyphoto.com/
      http://www.whcc.com/

      for those that have a Costco account, their print centers are pretty amazing and INCREDIBLY cheap. full processing, not cheap digital prints...
      8x10, 8x12s = $1.49
      11x14, 12x18 = $3.99
      16x20, 20x30 = $12.99
      can't really go wrong with any of those prices. i've ordered dozens and i have yet to have a bad experience with them whether with pickup at your local costco, or mailed to your address. http://www.costco.com [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      This needs to be a sticky.
      I am new to photography. In fact I don't even own a DSLR yet. I bought my wife a Canon Powershot SX10IS for Valentine's Day. She wanted a DSLR but I wanted to make sure we would get into taking photographs before I made a larger investment. The last 2 weekends though we've spent roughly 20 hours outdoors hiking around looking for photo ops and we have spent a couple of hours a night playing with our camera.
      I am just looking into bodys to get started with and this thread has a TON of useful information. I highly recommend this be a sticky.
      Thanks for all of the input everyone. This newb appreciates it.

      Try reading the thread first.. I don't mean to sound rude, but the purpose of this thread is to help you begin... and when you ask questions.. we'll pick up where the guide left off...
      But in short... what's your budget? and go into a store to pick up different models to see what feels the best in your hands... and move on from there... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
