Thanks Jack. Thanks Again.

When using the burst mode(Sports mode is the same, I suppose), you said that you have cropped to get the junk out. By that do you refer to cropping by photoshop techniques or within the camera itself, as there is a crop mode in digital zoom options?

And what is macro mode?

How do you post your pics with the max size of 25kb? As the direct pics are too large.
I want to post some pics I have taken with tips from you. But I couldn't.
Help me again Jack, please.

Nitish.

By cropping the junk out, I was cropping out things like another players legs, arms etc.

Macro mode is what you use to get better close up shots with your camera.

You resize/resample your photos to like say 800 pixels width and save them at 50-75%. This way you don't have to scroll to see the photos and they load quicker too.

OK, it is my bedtime now as it is about midnight where I'm at on the NW USA coast.

Nikon P90 is on sale for $360 at Best Buy!

$40 off what I paid for a month & 4 days ago!
I went down there and got $40 store credit.
I was over the 30 day limit by 4 days, but I asked for the store manager and he fixed it for me.
Always ask for the store manager!

BTW, I also saw it on sale at Ritz / Kit's Cameras too.

I didn't need my receipt. They looked it up as I knew the date.
However, if you have your receipt, it will go faster. I had paid cash, so it took them about 15 minutes and four different people to find it on their computers.

Sure enough, the second P90 arrived with exactly the same movement in the lens assembly. So that must be in the design. Lucky for my mother. I sent her the second one.

FYI: Amazon is selling the P90 for $359, free shipping. (Regular Price)

What were the setting used for that pic of water drops falling?
Did you use any tripod or was it handheld?

Did you get it in the motion detection option?

Hi Jack,
I think that were one question too many that night. Well, I have some more here.

You didnt specify what do you mean by cropping and is it done by a photoshop like program or in the camera itself?

How are your pics so sharp? Do you use a tripod regularly or are thay handheld? Because if they are hand held then the photo quality certainly depend upon the man behind the camera and not the cam itself?

Where can I get a trail of full version for photoshop or any other software used in phot editing?

Please Jack dont skip out questions, they all are equally important.....
Sorry if you feel ofended by that last sentence.....
