I love photography.  And while anyone can take a picture of a flower, I'm really impressed at how well the the focus and such turned out...  The original is big enough to be the background on my weird sized monitor.


The little one links you to the full size, I think.

Sony Cybershot DSC-F707

I love it.  Only 5 megapixels, but about 10 times better than most point and shoot cameras with 8.
Downside, it uses memory sticks.  Weird little things only used in some Sony products.  So This amazing pieve of technology will eventually become obsolete because it doesnt use SD or XD.

It was in its prime a few years ago...not so much now.

Thanks for all the kind comments, guys!

My advice is take your time with focus.  You may have a great op, but if your picture comes out blurry, your photo isnt as great.  Thats my problem with a lot of the "Photography" out there.
     That and over exposure.  Like you know how peoples faces look almost white sometimes?  You can use it to your advantage rarely, but most times it just washes out a beautiful shot and looks unprofessional.

Thanks for the tips! I shot a Konica Minolta but a compact.

Great camera, has 8 mp but can't zoom for nothing... I remember once seeing a deer out of my room window, got the camera and tried to take a picture of it but I couldn't see it from the camera. So I got some binoculars put it up the lens and it worked. It's dumb having to balance a heavy set binoculars and a camera... I'm hoping to get something much better like your cam for more pro shots. Have you had any experience with other cams? Film? I'm eyeing those Canon Rebels  Shocked Not sure how they hold up but I saw some pictures from a lady who owned one and they were gorgeous!

i hear good things about Rebels

If Youre thinking semi-pro, you could probably pick up a model like mine for pretty cheap.

Good thinking! I like your lens Smiley The one thing I really would like to do is be able to mess with the settings. Something thats not restricted like mine. I mean, basically all I can do is set it to: Economy, Standard, and Fine.

Its pretty adjustable, if you understand the owner's manual.  Auto or Manual focus, different white balances...lots of adjustibillity.

...it takes great photos outside at about 4 or 5 PM...random, I know...the flash is crazy bright and washes out a lot.  Night shot is fun to play with, too.

Flash drives me up the wall... when I take a photo at night and upload it, it shows circles all over it. As if the lens is dirty when it isn't. I've heard that one of the best times for taking pics is during an overcast. Haven't tried it but I'm guessing it works since the sun doesn't obstruct. Does your camera have a night vision setting? I'm not sure if thats just limited to camcorders but I've always wonder if your standard cam has one  Huh

I agree

i discovered a new trick!  Use the night shot setting it a room with the lights on!  It gives it a great affect with out making you look creepy!  My coz and I look like vampires in out opinion...want me to show you guys?
