    Default Oops just bought a new camera

    I've been hankering after a camera with remote capture (to make it easier to use my photo box)
    Today Ebay sent me one of those, 24 hour Argos clearance bargain deals -
    A Canon Powershot G10 for 269.99 (thats 39% off) + 270 plus points to spend later....)

    It's the very model I was lusting after....WHY do I get tempted just before the VAT bill???
    It kinda just fell into my basket

    What Camera do you use? Do you use the Auto settings or are you one of those "settings & exposure" types?
    Any tips for little ole me?? (could use all the help I can get)

    I have a canon powershot but it's not this one, it's my second one. I'm a point and shoot kind of person so i tend to use automatic. i mainly take inspirational pictures and a few pictures of my work, I'm not too good at closeups, I find it's hard to focus on glass pieces, which is what i make most.
    i do like the camera tho

    I use a little flat Sony Cybershot DSC T200, all auto. It is for its great macro setting that I use this one and its previous model. I have had in the past, complicated digital SLRs but never really used any of the extra functionality.

    I still use a pinhole camera that I made in a science class at school once, it gives just as good results as those new fangled digitalisey ones

    All well and good, but how long do you leave the flash cards in developer?

    Personally I'd go for a camera obscura!

    It takes a bit longer and you have to stand on your head to look at the image, which is a bit of a nuisance as well

    We use Nikon D200 cameras. Manual settings always, program mode is for when my Mum wants to take a picture

    My DH damaged the shutter on one of them "cleaning" the sensor. It still works on bulb setting so I made a cap for doing digital pinhole pics.
    Much quicker than film and easier to edit. And yet... I still prefer working in monochrome film, I just never have the time.
