So far, the pixs I'm getting are not perfect yet, perhaps shd try manual focusing and improvise my techniques.
oh you lucky bugger
seth, ive been researching this camera

i'd love to see what pics it produces. please show us!
i'd like to know how it goes in macro mode also

not that i can really afford one :sad anim:
Hi... still have not manage to squeeze out some time to experiment wif the DC. Am simply point and shoot at my fishes. Not meddling much wif the manual controls at the moment.

BTW, this DC is not brand new off the shelf. Bought it over from a friend who had it for 3 mths but hardly touches it at a STEAL. Only 700 bucks, a good 500 cheaper than off the shelf in Singapore. :D

I will try to find time to snap more pixs and post up for reviews.
