Good news! Don't forget to post some pictures.

And do I get any credit for pointing you this way? And, erm, letting Jim do all the work.

He knows his onions that Jim.

Dear Jim, dear Ferny,

just wanted to let you know that I had a GREAT bonsai weekend where I took less photos than planned because it was so packed full with lessons... :-)I haven't printed out any pics yet. SoI can't say much about resolution/quality. But it did what I wanted to... I was able to take pics of the wiring our bonsai teacher didto recordhow it is done and I could take pics from across the room to fix his drawings rather than drawing everything myself. Enlarging it on thecomputer to have a good look at the pic made it a bit hazy butthen probably I enlarged it more than needed and as it is not meant for a photoalbum it doesn't matter: I seewhat I need to see. I found all the different options a bit confusing (and partially wondered whether they really make taking pics easier butgiven that I had hardly any time beforehand to read how the Nikon works it was quite easy to use.

It was good have such a handy and small camera. Here a couple of pics though please note that I rather used the camera "somehow" i.e. I may not have used the most appropriate setting each time...

Regards, Ravenna

it is a bit cut off but as there were some people on it and I don't knowwhether they would mind being on a public pic I had to cut them out.

You did very well ferny... esp. with letting Jim do all the work... :lol:

But seriously: you don't always have to know everything (and you can't) you just have to know where to get the information.



So thanks to both of you.

You see that everyone!!! She called me thick! There! Right there!

*points a lot in random directions*


Glad to see you're enjoying the camera. The site seems to be having issues with pictures right now so I can't see them.

Oh, check your pm's.

Hey, I didn't call you thick at all, Ferny!!!! Just stated a truth that applies to all of us. So don't you even try to "pick a fight" I am completely and utterly innocent...:roll:



Strange about the pics. I guess they will come up again. At least I saw them after I had posted them so they ought to be ...somewhere....

All I can do is WARN YOU that the SD series from Canon produces far lower quality images than their other cameras- although they are slim and fast to startup, it's at the price of a poor focusing mechanism AND noisy images. I strongly advise that you avoid the SD series and instead look at Casio or Sony for small cameras. Otherwise the S series (S70 etc) though slow and a little bulkier, give much better images.
