Hi everyone,

We finally had a nice sunny day here in Salisbury, so that I could visit my favourite camera shop with my memorycard and try the CP8800.

First impressions were: it is nice to hold, all the buttons seem to be in a good location for me. I started off with using the LCD screen (I am used to that from my CP4500) in normal mode and auto (that how it was set up and I didn't know how to change it).

Then I justtook mainly pics, one in full zoom outand then full zoom in.

Here are some of the results.

greetings from

Angie

I will send the last three later, I got to go to worknow. I found as I was taking photos, that I preferred using the viewfinder rather than the LCD.

One thing I couldn't figure out was how to get a close up picture. I went into scene mode like I always do with my CP4500 but the camera just would not focus on anything. I am sure I must have done something wrong, so if anyone can give me an idea what I did wrong, that would be appriciated. Close ups are my second favourite after landscape photography.

By for now

Angie

Hi,

I am back from work straight onto the laptop:-)

The next 3 photos are taking standing in front of the shop, straight ahead you see a red and a white house with shops at the bottom. I couldn't any details of those shops from where I was in the first photo, the other 2 are photos of those 2 shops at full zoom.

I really was impressed. could be my second eyes:-)

Let me know what you think. All these photos were taken without me ever looking at a manual and i think thats not bad.

Greetings from

Angie

Angie,

You pix are a real treat for a fellow from Texas. I've always wanted to visit the UK, and will do so at some point. But until then, you photos are the next best thing!

I think you're doing great with the 8800!

A fellow 8800 owner,

Earl

Angie,

I took one of your shots into Photoshop for some quick levels adjustments. Hope you don't mind.

There's a bit of noise due to the low light conditions.

Earl
