not as hard as you may think ... i got to this point after a few days of playing with the camera. It took a long time to get the light decent, and in focus properly and what not... but once it was all set up to my liking, i just snapped away till i got a few nice shots.

This was done on a Canon S3 IS... they are cropped slightly, so thats why the info is stripped i think ... Im new at this so i dont even know what EXIF is yet, but im guessing its the exposure detail.

Yeah, some programs will remove that info by default.

but u are close

EXIF is a log of data that gets attached to EVERY digital image, weather it be taken by a camera, scanner, etc, or any of that variety.

It contains Camera make, model, ISO, shutter speed, apature, time & date, color space used, camera BIOS version, focal length, resolution, number of camera actuations, etc, etc.

Photoshop and windows can read some of it, but there are dedicated programs that do nothing but read this stuff (some of which is hidden by the camera manufactuers, like the shutter actuation count one. they dont like that one getting out there easily)

Pretty sweet. I have a Nikon Coolpix that I got for Christmas and I wouldn't even know how to take a picture like that. About 90% of the pictures I've taken so far are from Rangers games, lol

If anyone actualy wants to use this as wallpaper, let me know and ill post the full size pitcure, cause this crop + being blown up to wallpaper size might result in some image quality loss

Very cool.. I was wondering if you made an effect then I realized that it actually was water

I have a Canon 20D EOS which I've used all of ONE time.. what a waste.. I really need to use it one day and I always say that I'm taking it with me to a Ranger game but I never do

the learning curves are steep for a real camera (a few months) but worth it.

the amount of control, complexity, and features, etc, that a SLR is packed with is leaps and bounds above that of a Point&Shoot camera.


I am NOT saying that you cant get good images from a P&S (like your images are), but that to go deeper into more advanced photography where even more control is needed, takes an investment of time.

for example, when i take architectural images, i like to use my 28mm Tilt-shift lens on my Nikon. Since this lens is from 1981, it will not meter at all on my camera. So, after a long time of practicing with it, i have had to meter for myself based on looking at my surroundings. Is it a lot more effort to go that small step above what a 28mm AF lens would have gotten me? yes, but to me and many other photographers it was worth it.

Intresting.... interchangable lenses are something ill have to learn and get used too. Owning this camera though will be a nice prep before a dSLR though... at least i will be used to the effects of apeture,exposure, and iso by the time i get one ...

I also cant wait to have manual focus on the lens.... the digital manual focus is kinda a pain in the ass... all in all, the cam i have i see as a great "transition" camera

Also, u just meter by eye??? Must have taken some practice! ... Why not an external meter?

lol, they cost money, and i spent all mine on lenses.

28mm PC
18-200VR
18-70 DX
70-300 ED
12-24
20 1.8
50 1.4
85 1.8


Thats a good chunk of money, and i dont feel like spending more for right now. haha. though i am drooling over a 70-200 2.8 VR

But yeah, older, non-AI lenses, dont meter on most dSLRs, and are MF. Some new models, like the nikon D200, do have meter support, but this is a new feature.

with a fixed length lens, and if you always use certain apatures (say f8), it takes some of the variables out, so you can peg the metering somewhat close with practice. I generally take a few test shots, check the histogram, and then compensate as needed to max out the histo without blowing highlights.

again, this would be mostly for static shots (buildings, scenery). I would not want to try this myself with say sports, kids, or portrait work, where things are moving, and thus the light is always changing

Be careful though. if you just handle a dSLR for a bit, say in a store of from a friend, the instant addiction will crush you, and your wallet.
