I'm still feeling my way around this new camera, but I have to say it's VERY kind to the utterly clueless user-friendly.


There's been a lot of activity 'round the butterfly bushes today. Best I can figure, this is a Variegated Fritillary. If I'm wrong, please correct me.

One of several Eastern Tiger Swallowtails I've seen today:

Except for a wee bit of cropping and resizing, those are all straight out of camera. Not too bad. I wanted to make the colors in that last one pop a bit more, so I just put a soft light layer on it in Photoshop.

Thank you!

And I'm pulling a blank, but have you mentioned this here on LJ? http://www.msichicago.org/matm/

I think so. I know I've seen it and several friends are applying.

Canons are so very happy working with Macs, and I LOVE my SLR, so this was a natural fit. And it's a nice little camera for the price!

Yes, Canons and Macs = lurve. I have Canons for both my DSLR and my point & shoot and before that had an Elan IIe..."back in the day when we used film", lol.

I had my Dad's old Pentax 35mm. SO much more camera than I knew what to do with!
