Welcome to the group!

Don't forget to visit our sister group (SONY ALPHA DSLR-A200/A230)!

Group Description

This group is a sister group to the SONY ALPHA DSLR-A200/A230 group. We noticed that many people were moving to different models of Sony Alpha or switching brands, but still stayed a part of our community. Since the A200/A230 group restricts photo submissions to the Alpha 200 series of Sony DSLR, we thought it would be nice to have a place where people can post their photos, regardless of make or model camera, and still be a part of a great community. We allow photographs from any camera to be submitted, but we ask that you tag your photos and let us know what equipment you are using. Please direct A200/A230 questions to the SONY ALPHA DSLR-A200/A230 group and we urge you to join that group if you own an A200 or A230. Please view the rules for guidelines on posting photos and the requirements we have for tagging.

Congratulations go out to gibsonplayer for winning the August monthly photo contest!

Group Rules

The Photo Pool

This group is a sister group to the SONY ALPHA DSLR-A200/A230 group. We noticed that many people were moving to different models of Sony Alpha or switching brands, but still stayed a part of our community. Since the A200/A230 group restricts photo submissions to the Alpha 200 series of Sony DSLR, we thought it would be nice to have a place where people can post their photos, regardless of make or model camera, and still be a part of a great community. We allow photographs from any camera to be submitted, but we ask that you tag your photos and let us know what equipment you are using. Please direct A200/A230 questions to the SONY ALPHA DSLR-A200/A230 group and we urge you to join that group if you own an A200 or A230.

Remember, we do ask that your photo be tagged with the camera used to shoot it.

This is a work friendly / family friendly group. Please do not post anything that might be considered offensive or that would get someone in trouble at work (nudity, gross stuff, profanity, that sort of thing!)

You may post 6 photos per day to the photo pool. The group should grow quickly so a posting limit will make this group much more enjoyable to for everyone.

As mentioned above, all members are asked to tag their photos with the camera used to take them. We don't require the tag to be in a particular format, but failure to tag photos with the camera may result in us having to make this a requirement instead of a request.

The Discussion Board

We welcome all members, regardless of camera used, especially those of you who have moved on to different brands or even different models of Sony, but still wish to stay active in the community with our sister group. Please feel free to begin new discussions as well as regularly participate in on-going discussions.

Please refrain from arguments, name calling and rudeness in any form. This especially applies to "brand wars." Just because we allow photos from any brand to be posted does not mean we will tolerate arguments over what brands are "best." We ask that all users respect each other and the decisions others have made as to brand and model of camera.

We have group members from all countries and religions. Please pay special attention as not offend someones religious beliefs or ethnic background. When in doubt ask Admin. before posting.

Do not SPAM the discussion boards.

Basically, adhere to flickr's Community Guidelines when you post photos or participate in discussions.
