Hi, I was referred to this forum by a Mac forum member. I hope I find this forum useful. I'm fairly new to photography and am interested in purchasing something more advanced besides a $99 digital camera. My main focus on photography is nature, animals and objects. I'm currently trying to find something easy to use but I want a quick shutter speed. Nothing bugs me more than taking a shot only to have to wait 3 or 4 secs for my digital to focus in on the subject. UGH! Looking forward to sharing my work and for some critiques. My novice stuff is on deviantart at http://dees-dezines.deviantart.com/gallery So... do I guts potential? :blushing: And what should I work on? Don't forget, it's a $99 GE digital camera!
