    Another new camera lol

    Yes i have got another new camera ( a rare opportunity arose so i treated myself)
    I have stuck with the fuji finepix but got a newer model
    a S1800
    the main attraction was bigger zoom this one is 18x,
    but along with this came a extra 4 million mega pixels, face detection, smile detection, blink detection,auto zoom, and ability to take panorama's, so what i thought would be a easy transition is another new learning curve !
    these are some i have taken so far to try out things
    due to having no flowers :blush: peeps is the main model :grin:
    the plane is one bringing in the wounded soldiers from Afghanistan, although i was a bit slow taking this one as i had lost the zoom ! !

    one down side is the manual it is on a disc so i have to keep going to the pc to find any info i want out !
    well back to practising the grandkids will be here soon and can practice the smile detection out :grin:

    Have you seen this camera strap?
    by CJ Swartz
    Got my daily tip from, and thought it was worth sharing here. They have a link to the vendor, but also links to DIY tips on making one for yourself. (so it's not just a sales pitch.)

    Panoramic Cameras
    by Frank Lopes
    Myself and 99.99% of pano photographers, use what I would call normal cameras. Point and Shoot, DSLR, rangefinder, are the more common types of cameras.

    For the professional and serious pano enthusiasts, there is another very different type of camera that comes into play: panoramic cameras....
