Well, it's out of the box, the battery is fully charged, and I have finally had some time to play with my new toy ! These were all "on the fly" as Brett had the manual. The camera was missing it's strap, so he had to take the book and receipt back to get it...I think I did ok since I really didn't know what I was doing LOL !!!
These have been through Picasa, but I only removed red eye, and cropped a little. They were taken using the 55mm - 250mm lens. I think it will be quite some time before I can say with confidence I "do" know what I'm doing ! I love my new camera though !!!
