Playing with new camera and lens
« on: July 01, 2009, 11:50:51 PM »
I bought a new camera about a year ago, and haven't used it much because I wanted a zoom lens for it. I'm just starting to learn how to use it, and it's not as easy as my little trusty Fuji Finepix. ;)

Well, I tried to use imageshack, but I guess I didn't do it right, so I'll link another page.

where are the pics????   :evil:

i have a little Nikon that i love.  it fits in my pocket and i almost always have it.  it just doesn't take the quality pics that a couple of our other cameras take.

Oops- I didn't realize we were restricted to bee photos only. ;)
I have a gallery on there with bee pix too, if you want to see them. :)

Hey John, we can both share the title cause it happened to me on here! Can't recall who it was, but I thought a dude on here was a she. He was a good sport about it, we had a good laugh. Was just teasing you, been there! :shock: :-D ;)
