this is a very good news, Don!

You found a good spot on your new learning curve.

My hands don't shake too much, but I really like my tripod more and more.
If my favorite Linhof is not at hand, I am using a cheap and light weight part - using only one "leg" makes a fine monopod...

Your first shots used a very hard light...
I did not publish my first macro steps, your's are better!

Thanks everybody for your incouragement. I didn't have much time when I picked up the 6t and screwed it on. Ijust wanted to see if I could use it now. I didn't push the zoom at all so they aren't very close up but I was tickled to death when I gotthese shots.

ted & Sven, I had tried my tripod & monopod but for some reason I just could not get a focus. It was very frustrating and I think it was more a mental thing than anything else. Puts me in mind of a old saying I've heard, "If you think you can't, your right"

tinosa, The lighting was the 11a.m. sun streaming in the south windows to my plant room. Have always loved natural light.

I really am Jim. This camera is fantastic! I went to the Nut Cracker practice Wednesday night, getting ready for the preformance Saturday night. I shot with ISO 400 & 800 to see what settings I will need. Pictures are amazing out of camera compared to my FZ20. Very little noise with NR set to low. I could find no smearing of details either. The shutter and F stop settings are perfect where they are located on the camera. When the lighting changes, which is often, all I need do is take one shot, change speed to match the scene and the pictures turn out great.

I always shoot this in unlimited continous for my Granddaughters but I pick through all of those looking for the perfect pose, crop the girls out and have a beautiful shot of them at their best.
