Whoa there Fishy! That's a bit EXTREME! I read somewhere that you really only need to let it trickle charge 1-4 hours (total of ~6 hours first charge forme)at first and after that amount of time the battery reaches 100% charge...anything more it's not charging AT ALL :blah::G

NO, WROOOONG! :G

The Li-Ion batteries upon first charge of only 3.5 hours would only reach 80% capacity. To go from 80-100% you have to let it trickle charge for between 1-4 hours. Otherwise your battery will never reach its full potential.

Machro shots only added features were size reduction and texting with a highlighted border what makes a nice (never said perfect) shot is a tripod used.

you may notice some blurr but i cannot imagine on the closer one it was clearer but my imagination and its stained glass.

sorry bout the large file size

uh oh. My machro shots aren't so detailed anymore. I think it MAY be because of some smudges on the lens. MAAAAAAAAAAYBE, its POSSIBLE:-)

So are there any cheap, good lens cleaners out there? Or if not, how should I clean the lens with everyday materials. Would a que tip work or no?


HEHEEE, false alarm, just got a close up machro of me and...well it looks...pretty darn ugly lol, but DETAILED. So

I'm surprised because the lens is quite dirty, with fingerprint and some smearing

Still like to know how to clean it though.


UPDATE!!!!

I read that breathing heavilyon the lens and wiping away with aque tip is a good method. But I'm scared. Petrified really :O Someone try it and see if it scratches the lens or something

You can buy a lense cleaning kit at any walmart. Eyeglass cleaner sprays are good to. The que tip may work, but make sure your not smearing any grit around. Pure cotton is generally OK.

On a side note, are you young or just really exuberant? (the answer is neither negative or positive)

there are lens cleaners on the market specially paper. and If I remember correctly, you can use the paper as a filter for high glare sun shots. that was told to me in the 70's
