I had to look up your camera make and model as we don't hear to much about Toshiba products as a rule.

Judging by the look, and lens manufacturer, it seems like Canon had a strong influence on the unit. If this is your first digital- it seems a good choice.

Free advice (worth about what you pay for it) give some thought to either a backup or large SD card.

ALWAYS reformat the card in the camera- NOT from your computer. The computer sometimes puts things into the registry of the card, that can confuse the card.

As to your actual photo technique- you seem to have a very good "subject" to work with, so you have plenty of opportunities for lots of shots. You seem to have a feel for the timing of the critical action. I encourage you to take lots of shots at every chance you get. Polish your methods and you will eventually get that "One in a million" shot that we all try for.

Good shooting and keep in touch - Jon F.

It's my fourth digicam, actually. I bought it after researching all of the "megazooms" in Steve's reviews and on other sites. Still have the first one, a 1/3 megapixel Ixla, which will go into a curio cabinet with all of my old film cameras one day. Saving my sheckles for a Pentax dslr so that I can put the bag full of Spotmatic lenses to use once again. I don't want anything to do with unpacking my darkroom that's been in storage for the past 20 odd years.

As for these shots, I was anticipating a play at second base, and when he kept going on to third was caught trying to find the bag, zoom out, compose, and fire off a 6 shot burst all at the same time. I feel lucky that all I did was amputate his right hand .

Boy - do I know THAT feeling !!

I get pulled into my Grandsons soccer games on occasion.

Sorry about the assumption you were "just starting out". I try to encourage so many "Newbies". I sometimes forget there are "others" who are picking up from film experience.

My basic philosophy is one of - take whatever equipment you have and use it to its fullest. Right now it is getting almost silly on some of these threads !

They even argue about the COLOR of a camera !! Now thats my idea of stupid !!

See Ya - Jon F.
