Thanks Jim. I forgot to list the Sandisk Extreme IV I bought as well. I bought a 4gb for about 84 bucks on Amazon.com It was the cheapest listed on pricegrabber.com at the time.

Hmm, as soon as I figure out how to resize in CS3 I'll do that. *frustrated*

I took this pic today, a cloudy day at Lake Michigan with a nice polarizing filter since the shot is over water. I used my Tamron 17-50 f.2.8. I can see through the water where the goose is paddling with it's feet

Anyhow, any suggestions?

I think that one was probably taken with your Beercan. I take it you used more than one lens while shooting. The image EXIF shows a focal length of 210mm using an aperture of f/4, with a largest available aperture of f/4, which would match up to the Beercan (70-210mm f/4) zoomed in all the way.

You may want to share some in our Wildlife Photos Forum

Or, if you want some critique on an image with suggestion for improvement, make sure to check out our Critiques and Techniques Forum

How are you liking your new A700 so far? I really like mine.

Oops, yes it was the beercan...I was testing out the filters for the first time. Hmm, maybe I didn't have the polarizer on then. I'm going to have to keep a log when testing as my memory is obviously not the best. :?

I LOVE my new camera! We are inseperable, I can't seem to put her down. I've learned so much about it from this site too!

I'm really looking forward to the weather here to warm up so that I can take more outdoor pics as being by the lake today was very chilly. I'll post more in the forums you suggested
Jim.:-)

You can probably tell by looking at an image's EXIF information if you don't have too many similar lenses (that's how I figured out it was the beercan). For example, this is what I see for that one using one editor to take a quick look at it. Most image editors can show you information about the image.
