Trying new camera....

I need one of our great photographers on the forum to move in and teach me how to use my new camera!! (and how to play with the photo on the computer) There is SO much more to learn than in my old film SLR days....I'm thinking I might have overstepped my abilities! So far, I'm doing everything in the auto mode and I'm not always happy with the results. So, here are a few shots of Doc...can't wait to get outside and get some when it's not RAINING!!!

I got the Canon 40D with a 28-135 IS lens....it's a bit bigger than I intended to get...I've always had Nikon film SLR's and loved them....not sure why I ended up with a Canon except that the salesman must have been really good! LOL!!

Judy, what a great series of Doc. What a great face he has... I always use automatic too. My DH does all the fancy stuff.

Those are beautiful pictures. Of a gorgeous dog!

I need a new camera and I'm kind of clueless so I would always use the auto.
Would you recommend getting this camera for someone who is a real neophyte?
I want a simple camera that will catch my dogs when they move.
My present camera always misses the shot , since the dogs turn at the moment I'm shooting.
