Oh I just could not wait to come here and post these. Not that they are great photos or anything, but just of what they are.....

ok sears tower in chicago. no biggy... but look closely cuz at 1353 ft high you notice there are some kind of windows jutting out of the side of the building...


Lets zoom in. Theres no on in them being that its only 6 something in the morning


Well heres what those boxes and my feet look like 1353 above the city


Nice guy who let me take a photo of him so i can get the full effect, well except the ceiling which is glass too


so maybe now ill show up on flickr in that guys camera


I was too scared to even get on this ledge, it just opened last week... so i never thought to do zooms, but i guess i did do one... but i have no idea how much or what not



just to show you thats the ceiling



so besides these i did get cool pictures throughout the city which i will work on later after i sleep... but i did want to do a good zoom, even though we have seen it repeatly now...

sears tower, biggest building smack in the middle (obviously different view then the above ones)



24 optical


full zoom

Hey everyone, beautiful pictures! I'm still getting to know my P90, but have gotten some awesome shots over the past few weeks. I went on vacation with my family to the Oregon Coast, plus we made a trip to the zoo. I messed around with the fireworks setting on 4th of July and that is so cool, but definitely something that needs a tripod.

Anyway, wanted to share some of my favorite pictures I've captured since I last visited:

Oregon Zoo




Oregon Coast (Newport / Nye Beach)


Oregon Coast Aquarium






I did my beach photos with the beach scene setting
Seeing the ocean for the first time...


Picture from last week:


4th of July festivities:

Lynsie having the time of her life...


The next day... back out in the pool:


Finally... playing on her catepillar sprinkler

This was already answered in post #485. If the new folks would read though these threads, they will find many of your questions answered.

When you're trying to manipulate depth of field (blur the background), you adjust a lens's aperture: bigger iris opening (smaller f-stop number) yields a shallower field and tends to blur background (and foreground), a smaller aperture (larger number) yields a deeper field.

So what you do is put the P90 on A mode and rotate the dial (where the thumb is) to the smallest f-stop number.

Yes, I'm getting there and enjoying messing with the settings. It's fun to see all the neat things this camera can do. I'm SOOOO happy with my purchase. I've taken SO many pictures, I think I'm driving my husband crazy. HA! I'll be back again with more soon!
