Hi everyone,

I finally done the deed and purchased the CP8800 last Thursday. The weather unfortunately wasn't too brilliant andI could not do many outdoor pictures.

Here is just a few. I was struggling a bit getting close ups with it. Somehow I have to stay at least a meter away to get close up to focus. Any suggestions or it just can't do closer close ups?

Indoor photos are ok, but I think they are better with flash. I do like the flash asI can choose at least 5 different options just by pressing a button.

I haven't had a chance to do any landscape photography, but I will post some as soon as I get a chance.

I am very impressed with the zoom, that is just what I needed.

Greetings from

Angie

Hi there!
Gratulations with your new camera. I am sure you will get lots of good pictures. I bought my 8800 in desember, and I am still very happy with the choice of purchase. I currently live in Shanghai and there are so much to see and so many motives to catch here. Just wish for some more time to practise my rather poor photographer skills

Nevertheless, I am sure your "problem" easily can be solved by pushing the button beside the VR-button a couple of times to get into macro mode (look for the green flower on the LCD). Just remember to go out of macro mode (if you are using other options than full auto) when you are done, unless your other pictures will be crappy. If using full auto, you have to choose macro mode (or landscape mode) every time you roll the setting-wheel out of- and back into full auto.

Hope this helps, and sorry for my poor "norwegian-enlish".

Hi sirthomas,

Thanks for your help, I will try that later.

I know I should really go back and read the manual, but then I never did that much either when I bought my CP4500 2 1/2 years ago. I am still finding out thing which that one can do.

I took a shot of the moon last night and I am really impressed. Have you tried that?

I had seen all those moon photos on here and I didn't really think they hadn't been worked with photoshop or something.

Well I got a lot to learn AND read with this one.
