The rain stopped for a few minutes, so i decided that was a good time to head for the mailbox. On the way I found a bumble bee also hiding out from the all that rain. This and the next photo were taken with the new P-880.

Silver-

It is unusual to see bumble bees this early while it is still pretty cool. This guy was obviously hiding from the rain showers, just as I was. I'm glad you enjoyedboth photos.

Beautiful clarity and detail. The extra MP's are working aren't they!

What great shots MT.

Is this the "Auto" setting? I was just wondering because I have the P850, and I know yours is a step above mine. I have actually had better results with the auto then the macro, unless lighting conditions are absolutely perfect.

Tracy and Big Dawd-

I took the photos with one of the scene modes that are on the Main Mode Selector. And because the P-880 showed no ISO, No shutter speed, and no aperture, when I was taking the photo, I would say yes, they were taken in the Auto Mode.

The extra 3mp in the P-880 versus the P-850's 5mp really does show up loud and clear. You can do a whole lot more with the images.

That's what I was thinking! The detail is very astonishing. How is the macro focus compared to the P850?

Dwag-

On the P-850 you have to plow through the menu, whereas on the P-880 the Super Macro is right on the Mode Selector making the whole drill a great deal easier.

Or, if you are a smart cookie you can put it in one of the "c" modes and thus allieviate plowing.

Which is how I set mine up.

It is also programed to take in TIFF. I get plenty of detail that way.
