I went and purchased a new camera! I have been playing with it since I got home last night and so far, I am very happy with it. It is an Olympus SP-550UZ, it has 7.1 Mp and 18 X Optical Zoom. Now, it is going to take me some time to figure out all that it can do, but here are a few of my first photos with it.
No flash, in my living room, with some zoom, last night.
Around noon, I stepped out onto my patio and zoomed all the way, then had to back off. I think it is about 20 feet to the tree.
Maximum zoom, click and see the craters! The little ones!
About 20.30 hrs looking West (duh) down my front road.
I had to climb to the third floor landing to get this shot, but I like how it turned out.
I tried to get another shot of the moon later, but it must have been possessed, all I got were these ghosts!
Note to self - buy a tripod.
Well, not bad for the first few shots! I hope to have a better grasp on it by Tuesday for the WWC. I know that it will take a lot longer than that to figure out the manual settings and all the other things it can do, but, I will be taking fabulous photos before you know it!
Good night all.
