Hi
I guess i have done this thing backwards. ha. I have already posted some pix for critique before i did the introductions. Love the feedback. There is so much information on here i am quickly becoming obsessed. I am like many new people to this site love to take pictures but havent had much if any instruction on technical issues. Glad to be here. Hope u guys dont mind commenting on less than steller photos. I hope to get better. jenn

well now i have an Olympus sp-600UZ but not all of the pix i have posted were with that camera. I just wanted to know what more experienced people thought of the pix i have taken. I have to learn alot. I think i am limited with what i can do maybe because of the camera. It is just a hobby so it dosent have to pay the bills but i would like to get better.

There is some stuff you can do with a megazoom, and others stuff you can not. Shallow DOF is something that is not really suited for a point and shoot, and low light shooting.

But if you get good separation from your subject and the background, you can achieve some shallow dof effects with the long zoom. Macro shooting is a very strong suite with megazoom cameras.
