    Hey all,

    Im completely new to this kind of thing but i was wondering if anyone at all could help me out....

    I currently have a fresh water aquarium set up (see photo below) and i am currently thinking of upgrading my camera in order to be able to take closer more defined pictures. Im a 16yo lad so suggestions over £400 wouldn't be appropriate.

    I currently have a Fujifilm FinePix F410 which doesnt allow me to (appologies for my lack or terminology here but) i think 'spot focus' on specific things that i want to.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Cheers, Mike

    Here are a few of my aquarium shots. Nikin D70

    I have found that a tripod is a must and 500 shots = one USABLE shot of a fish!
