Took this with a P&S camera back when I was living in Texas.

Some P&S, I'd say! Fantastic picture. Can you remember any technical details at all, Walter?

Mind you, I notice that these forums and all dSLR owners regard anything digital that isn't a dSLR as a P&S. Even in my film SLR days, I almost never just pointed and shot, and I certainly don't now, unless desperate, and I've never relied on the camera software in any of my digicams.

With my cheapo little superzoom hybrid, I don't point & shoot because I first adjust the exposure by eye in my live preview EVF before I shoot. OK, I don't have the pixels and superb image quality, but it's about time dSLRs caught up with that feature!

Nice job, Walter.

Alan, I just saw an advertisement in Shutterbug (July 08 issue) for a DSLR with a tilting LCD screen and LCD preview through the lens. Unfortunately, I don't recall the manufacturer. It may have been Olympus. I'll see if I can find it again.

Cal

[size=1]We were discussing some of these ideas in 'General Q&A' recently and JimC wrote there:

....You may want to look at the new Sony DSLR-A300 (a dSLR with Live View).

It's shipping now, and has an LCD that tilts so you could keep the camera at a lower position while framing (most DSLR models have a fixed LCD on the camera's back).

Sony DSLR-A300 at sonystyle.com....
See http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...885563#p885563 ,

What's wrong in my view with live preview on a screenas opposed toan Electronic ViewFinder is that you can't easily see it in daylight.

Sorry about dragging you off-topic.
