New camera!

My new camera was delivered today!! I was going to sew a little tonight, but this sort of took over. I haven't read through a lot of the specifics on it yet, but I have been testing it out. I really like it!! And even though it took me more than a hour to figure out how to download the pictures from the camera to the laptop, I have figured out how to get done the quickest way. WOO!!!

My first picture

Playing with the 30X zoom. This was taken while I was sitting on my front step. The mailboxes are across an apartment style parking lot, across a grassy area and then across the street from where I was.

I can't wait to see how it does when I find something that I really want to shoot!

And of course, my favorite subjects!

Playing with the flash.

And modes. I'm not sure what I changed the settings to, but I prefer the pictures above to this setting.

And some midgets... When I was taking the pictures, the fabric looked off on the screen of the camera, but they look fantastic on the laptop!

This one looks a little blue, but the colors are purple.

OK, enough pics for now! I am sure there will be more in the next few days!

Very nice!! I checked out your camera and I really like it but I want something that I can stash in my pocket when I need to. Awesome zoom!
