While these shots are not great I think they are the 1st passable ones out of my 8800 to post. I am going out today to shoot and hopefully will get better ones for my next post.

Hi Terry,

You didn't reaaly pick a very nice day to take the photos,did you:-)?

Pretty good photos though. I like the one with the reflection in the puddle.

How do you find the 8800 then,now you had it a while? Is there anything you really don't like?

Thank you for posting those photos

Greetings from

Angie

Angie, yes it's our rainy gloomy season here now. About the 8800... well I think the 1. Manual focus is useless.

2. I sure would like if they had an auto orientation for photos wheteher taken in landscape or portrait, so when I u/l to my pc I didn't have to roatate them.

3. Filter size is proprietary

4. the ISO is automatic and non chooseable, in A&S

5. It needed to be tweaked with contrast sharpness etc settings to take what I consider as good pics and those tweaks do not apply to automatic then.

Correction on this the ISO is choosable, I was just looking in the wrong place for it.

Hi Terry,

It sounds like a voyage of exploration, lucky you. Of course all this info is going to help me when I get mine after Christmas.

I have yet to see a camera which is perfect. It sounds though from all those different comments, it might be quite a successful one.

Have you taken any really great close-ups yet?

Angie, on my way home from shooting today, I stopped at a home improvement center and took these with the macro setting. Also note, I shot these at the 5mp setting, not the 8, so I could see if there was much quality loss. I thought very impressive results. What do you think?

Terry

Hi Terry,

Very nice photos!

The first one is my favourite, at a guess, did you move the main focus point to the left?

I can do that with my coolpix 4500. that is one of the featuresI liked about it plus of course the swivel body.

It makes the firstphoto so much more interesting.

The colours in both pictures are great. carry on the good work.
I realy hope now that the price does go down after Christmas.

I opened a free photobase account now and managed to put some of my pics on there.

Enjoy
