CHARTER: rec.photo.digital.slr-systems

This newsgroup, rec.photo.digital.slr-systems, is an open forum for the
discussion of digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera systems.

These systems consist of:

- Digital SLR (DSLR) camera bodies with mounts for detachable lenses
- Lenses for those cameras

Additional On-Topic Discussion:

- Discussion of any relevant accessories for those camera systems,
including but not limited to: external flash units, memory cards,
microdrives, lens filters/hoods, camera bags/cases, DSLR
camera/lens/accessory maintenance, tripods and monopods
- Photography techniques, as long as the discussion remains within the
context of DSLR photography
- Image post-processing, as long as the discussion remains within the
context of DSLR photography
- Posting links to personal photo galleries or images, as long as the
discussion remains within the context of DSLR photography
- Discussion of digital backs for film SLR bodies

What Is Considered Off-Topic:

- Discussion of pure film cameras
- Discussion of digital point-and-shoot, ZLR, rangefinder, or any other
non-SLR digital cameras
- Discussion of any cameras with non-detachable lenses
- Discussion of digital rangefinders
- Discussion of scanners
- Discussion of printers
- Posting links to personal photo galleries or images, not in the
context of DSLR photography

Posting off-topic should be kept to a minimum. All off-topic posts
should be prefixed with [OT] or another easily-identifiable prefix in
the subject line. If a segment of any on-topic thread ever becomes
clearly off-topic, it is the duty of those individuals posting to change
the subject line to reflect the off-topic change.

Debating the pros and cons of digital photography vs. film photography
is off-topic. Please be polite and try to not steer any conversations in
that direction. In the event that any segment of any on-topic thread
ever becomes clearly off-topic by debating the pros and cons of digital
photography vs. film photography, it is the duty of those individuals
posting to change the subject line to reflect the off-topic change.

What Is Considered Inappropriate:

- Crossposting to any other newsgroup except where the post is of direct
relevance to each group in the crosspost

What Is Not Permitted:

- Posts from mail2news gateways and/or anonymous remailers
- Flame wars (comparisons between different digital SLR brands or
systems are permitted as long as they do not degenerate into personal
flames)
- Signatures with more than 4 lines
- Exchange and/or discussion of illegal software
- Personal attacks
- Binary postings (i.e. non text postings) other than PGP and small
binary signatures

kind, whether personal, private or commercial, as well as all other
promotional material, whether or not it is in any way related to
photography.
