wow, those are gorgeous, littlecoo!

you'll like digital. most decent digital slr's will allow for manual use. even my little kodak 981z has manual controls for just about everything, focus, aperture, f-stop and so on. you may have to download a manual in order to find everything, though

I'm chuffed at how they turned out- I used a polarizing filter on my lens to kill much of the glare and that did a lovely job with the colour overall ...Now I'm eagerly waiting for next lot of "practice targets" to fly in....
Yum! I'd say that you hit that focus very well, and I love that DOF. You can still shoot manual all you want - only now you can see how great they are a bit sooner, and get "chuffed" sooner. I've never had Rainbow Lorikeets in my yard (Palms - our cats probably make that a bit unlikely), and I'm looking forward also to the next lot of "practice targets" that fly into your yard. I think you're going to enjoy seeing those results right after you shoot them, and the room in your fridge now that you don't have to keep your film cool.
