    Hey, everyone. I got my Hitachi HDC-1219E 12MP camera just yesterday and I've taken a couple of pictures. Just tell me your honest opinion and try not to be too harsh. Thanks!

    And how do you focus in on some things?

    Reduce the size and post again... I shouldn't be able to type this and submit before the images load.

    Well the first two looks like you just walked out your front and back door and just snapped a pic without putting any thought in to it. The 3rd pic you should have cleaned the fish tank before even thinking about taking a pic of the fish in it.

    Now as far as how to focus on things the first thing you should be doing is reading your manual that came with the camera.

    The colors and quality of the pictures is really off. It look like you took a picture off your cell phone. If you're trying to go for the rusty vintage look, you should adjust your setting to capture the color better. Otherwise those colors are not very vibrant, not a way a dslr should look.

    A couple things on all 3 of them.

    They all seem to be to have a lot of noise in them.

    The subjects you were shooting are all dead center of the pic. One thing I have learned in my short time is most of the time you don't want your subject dead center. Most people here will tell you to read up on the rule of thirds.

    What do you mean by a lot of noise?

    It means the picture is very grainy. Look closely and you see little white dots all over the picture. Now compare that with your first 2 pictures you first posted. The color are vibrant and clear. You can't see the noise *graininess* in those photos. The last 3 you posted are very grainy, and the colors are very dated.
