Can anyone suggest a forum/website etc that can help me learn how to get the best out of my DSLR. I have a Nikon D3200, had it for a few months now but really only been playing around with it and taking basic pictures (quality varying) however i want to be able to get more from it as i know it has lots of features etc that will improve my pictures however right now i have no clue about any of it and I'm looking to start picking things up. Cheers

This site looks OK:
http://www.digital-photo-secrets.com/tip/1462/photographers-trinity/

Worth looking to see if a local adult education centre or arts centre does an eveing class, often quite cheap and a great way to learn.

What camera is that you're using Phikz. Is it vintage/analogue or something you can pick up now?

Dgrin forum (US) used to be really good with a mix of prof to amateur with weekly comps, haven't used in years but got me started, may be worth a look. There was a GB one but not as good.

All get really good reviews

Had the mk1 and 2, not tried the 3 but they are very decent compacts, producing quality photos v camera/sensor size. I doubt you will see massively noticeable differences in quality.
