Learning Curve

I waited until Alan came home to take the new camera out of the box yesterday. It seemed to work fine so we took it out for a spin yesterday afternoon.

It takes fantastic least in his hands. He has always had a knack with cameras and this big one sure shows that. I am kinda blind and slow......

I took it out this morning to start learning it. A pretty steep learning curve after all the years with the S3IS, which is as familiar in my hands as a bar of soap. Thank you Steve for all the years with it. I have had amazing fun taking pictures with it....I don't think a day goes by that I don't take at least a couple.....It is still a great camera, although in need of a good cleaning I guess.

Anyhow, I am excited about the possibilities with the new one, although for a while Alan will probably spend most of the time in the driver's seat. 

Sure does bring the birdies in close though.

Nice shots, and vivid colors. I think this new camera will do quite nicely for you. :)

I keep thinking I need a new camera but I can't seem to give up this one.

So glad you've got Allan to help. I'd purchased a really nice camera a year ago. The weight and then my reluctance to 'take it on' finally compelled me to give it to my son. I'm waiting to see what he's getting over in NH.

Rev Paul, thanks, can't wait to go out to the swamp with it.

Linda, your photos are wonderful!

Cathy, he is so good to me.
