    I like taking these kinds of pictures...
    This was with my small camera I still carry with me at all times Canon SD900

    I do notice I take a lot of pictures of my youngest Son. The reason is because he likes me to take him picture, and my oldest almost ALWAYS blinks.
    Those are with my old camera- no editing has been done to them..

    There I took at a par last week. With each shot I changed the ISO. I can't tell if it did anything..

    So I guess I favor taking pictures with fewer people in them. I guess.. cause that is what the bulk of my pictures are.

    She's explaining why she is unhappy with her new camera. That she can't get the same image quality she is used to with her P&S

    I am sure you wanted to be offensive.. You knew the comment was. :raisedbrow: I sense DH doesn't play well with others. You know, I am pretty sure you can block me if you find my post to be... pointless.

    Well if you don't like your new camera I will sure take it ;-) lol But the thing is that you bite off more then you could chew. You don't know how to use it so you are giving up. This 7D takes much better pictures when you know how to use it. So you can either,
    A- Give up and return it
    B- Trudge forward and learn the camera
    or C - take it back and get a entry level dslr.
    ot you can always give it to me ;-) lol

    Any reason why you shot the last scenes with the flash?

    I'm sure we could get you up to par. But first, have you taken the time to read through a book like Understanding Exposure (considering thats where you are having issues)...?


    Edit: For now, please disregard ISO. If you can go into the menu and set a max ISO of like 800 and then leave it be until you read a bit more about exposure, then you'll get less frustrated.

    In another thread she explained how she asked for a better camera and the salesman sold her a 7d. The unsuspecting customer didn't know what she was getting into.

    Getting a DSLR, for someone who may have never intended on getting into photography that deep, can be pretty daunting.
