Hi sirthomas,

I managed quite well doing "paparazzi" photos at our family Christmas party with my CP4500, but now I am so far away they shouldn't even notice.

As for Holiday photos from South-America, I haven't been again. But I took enough photos to post a few more.

Yes,moon shots, I posted a few here already, but there might be some unseen ones

Here is one before doing anything to it

greetings from

Angie

Hi Angie!
Some nice moonshots there. My guess is that your shuttespeed was set to 1/250 ?

I^ll try that GregHal!
Know the 8800 cant make magic even though it seems close sometimes....., but maybe another filter will help getting more colours?

Can soon get "copy filters" (53.5mm) here in shanghai a local friend told me. Never tried any filters before, except for my Konka UV filter I bought last month.

Thomas.

I personally would be inclined to stay away from filters untill you knew exactly what the camera can do. There are adjustments within the camera that can be made to compensate for many things.

I don't believe you have said what resolution and quality you are using. I have found that there is a difference when the camera is set to a full 8 mp / extra quality . I find I have to use Photoshop much lessnow. I seem to only be resizing and occasionally lightening images.

With a 1 gig and a 512 mb card I get 188, 5 meg images which for me is ok. I am able to delete the bad ones in the camera to save space but could see a problemon a long trip if you don't haveseveral large cards or no laptop.

Dear Sirthomas-

I really enjoyed your photographs. Ironically I chanced upon this set of posts while agonizing over whether or not to purchase the 8800 for my upcoming trip to China and Indonesia... will probably see some of the same sights you did... therein lies the irony. And now the question.

I currently have a fujifilm with 10x zoom that was great on my trip last summer throughtout Cambodia, Thailand, Burma, Laos and Vietnam... but (and I knew this when I purchased it.. just couldn't spend too much money at the time) the print quality was not as much as I now wish I had ...Having used a 10x zoom, I don't want anything less but now I'm seeking greater print quality.

So I'm wondering if you have printed any of these photos out? At what size and what original quality setting did you shoot the ones you printed out (have you tried RAW)?

Thanks!

Great series, Sir Thomas

I concur with Angie!

I do hope to own an 8800 someday myself.

Attached you wil find a "take" of your bicycle photo.

Hope you don't mind...

There was plenty good about it.

I just tried to "bring out" its beauty.
