    Thankfully, my folk's brought me a Fujifilm s3000 Digital Camera a couple of days ago for my 18th. Despite my low expectations of the camera, it has proven quite successful so far, and here are the spoils of my first outing with it:

    A Pair of Yellow Orchids:

    Unfortunely, I have as yet been unable to purchase a book to help Identify wildflowers, so Can only Post the Names of the one's I do.

    Nice group. The light is a little harsh on the last two.

    The last is some sort of bottle brush. Don't recognise the leaves but I would guess at Callistamon (sp?) by the stama.

    Nice shot. Slightly over-exposed but Fuji's seem to do that. My S7000 is exactly the same. I am forced to drop the "lightness" in photoshop, which is a pitty bacause Fuji's otherwise seem to take an excellent image.

    I've also noticed that alot of the images I take with this camera come out a little overexposed. I've begun experimenting with the camera's manual Setting in the hope of being able to eliminate this problem. For now, I'm "fooling" the camera into taking the right exposure by using the Auto Exposure Lock.

    Just as a Note: That last Photo, of the Pink & yellow flower was taken @ 0.3 of a MegaPixel. The rest were done at Either 2MP or 3MP.
