Glad to see, that you're all Smiles with your new purchase. (Sorry, that was a bad joke)

If you have any questions please ask, both myself andBrian Hare, wehave had these cameras quite a while now and we will be happy to guide you through it.

Here's a few random pictures taken with my DX6490. (Some may have add-on lenses attached)

Awesome pictures !!! Hope mine turn out that well !!!!

What type add-on lenses do you use?? A thought for LATER.

This is all new to me so you may get tired of me bugging you with question !!

How do I send pictures to the forum?? The insert image up there is different than any I've used before,when I click on it I get a Exployer user prompt message

Thank you for the compliments.

The first picture was taken with the Kodak wide angle lens on the end of the adapter.

The second was taken with a skylight filter on the end. (It lives on my camera all the time)

The third was a bare camera shot shorty after I bought it in December.

The forth was with the skylight again.

And the last one was another shot straight from the camera in macro mode through a glass case.

You can post a single picture by using the browse window at the bottom.

The best thing to do is resize the picture to 800x600 max.

If you don't have Photoshop,PSP or any of the others, you can use Irfanview which is free to download at.........

When you have to image at the right size, just click on browse and it will show your windows to find the image, click on the image file and the browse window will fill with some text, don't preview, just send and it works a treat.

If you want multiple pictures in your message then you need to upload your images to an online album like.....

Another freebie.

You have to right click on your full image and copy the properties in the add picture window, but delete the "http://" in the window first.

Nice work, all. I'm very pleased to see the quality of images from the DX6490. Here's one of mine. f5, ISO 80, at 1/1000 sec.

I'm a little new to posting pics on the web... next time I'll make it larger... it loses too much detail at this size.

Hi Brian;

I meant to reply the other day... I got kind of busy on the weekend.

Point Pelee is actually one of the most recognizable places on the Canadian map, once you know where to look. If you find a map of Ontario, and stick a pin in the place that's farthest South, that's Point Pelee. Big birding area in the spring... Monarch butterflies come through on their fall migration, and just up the road is H.J. Heinz in Leamington. (see my post in "jpeg compression")

You've got some nice shots there.

Keep shooting.

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Now that is a great shot.

Brian, why aren't yours like that?

Come to think of it, why aren't mine like that?

Keep up the good work Tom.
