New camera.

Post by Martin Thoene » Sat Dec 26, 2009 7:10 pm

Just bought my first Digital SLR camera today. Here's a few test shots. Not bad for the first try out I think.

The tank glass needs a good clean before I get serious.

They are bright photographs!!

How much will the ISO setting of this photograph be?
I long for low noise and high sensitivity ISO performance.

My main camera became Canon PowerShot S90 from last month.

I still have admiration to the digital single-lens reflex camera,
but hesitate because a waterproofing case for underwater photography is too expensive.
I am not used to English. Therefore,It is likely to sometimes misunderstand it.

Great pics! Those are nice little cameras. I bought my wife an XTi earlier this year and the kit lens that it came with works great for taking fish pics. Not ideal perhaps, but it works better than the lenses she had for her 35 mm SLR.

You won't be disappointed with what that camera can do.

Excellent as always. I can't seem to figure out how to get good photos with my SLR - easier with the point and shoot (Pentax Optio W60), What settings do you use, and do you use a flash?
