I have been having a great time learning my new camera. I have the Olympus c5500, this is my first digital. Here is a sunset I caught.

Hi MagiKat:

A great job on the sunset photo; I really like the touch of the geese flying in front of the colorful clouds.

The C5500 is a great little camera; it's hard to beat for the features offered at the economical price. You are going to enjoy learning digital with that camera.

MAGIKAT,

NICE photos. That is some camera. Did you use "Auto" setting or which others? That is a FANTASTIC sunset.

Thank you for sharing.

I used the sunset setting for the sunset. On the other I shot in program mode with 2+ sharpness and 1+ saturation.

MAGIKAT,

Thank you very much for the good information. The Harley photo is really good too. I can see the outline of one, and maybe two people in the picture. That camera must a real jewel.....and the person driving the camera sure knows their stuff.

Have you done any low light photos, or just inside pictures. I always get indoor photos too dark. Any good photography tips would be appreciated.

Thank you for sharing your photos. Keep 'em coming.

divertwo.

divertwo,

I haven't done a lot of low light yet, but I caught this frog outside my back door. Shot in auto using macro mode with outside light only.

MAGIKAT,

Nice photo. You musta' really got close for this shot. Those eyes are clear as a bell.

Never seen a frog that color. Are you sure that is not a baby alligator? /ha/ha Just teasin'.

Thank you for all the good info' and the GREAT photos. Keep shootin' and sendin'.

Hope you were far away from the hurricans.

MAGIKAT,

You've made a believer out of me. I ordered my Wife one of these cameras today. Thank you very much for convincing me to go with this camera. I was thinking of the C 7070, but my Wife doesn't like all the bells and whistles, just a simple point and shoot camera, so I thought this would be best for now.

She takes better photos with my old Olympus C730 than I do with my Nikon 8800. May just get her to give me some photography lessons.

Thank you again for all your help. May have to ask for more assistance soon.

Divertwo
