I finally had some time today to go to an actual camera store, and had the guy there show me what equipment I needed to take decent close-ups. Spent more than I wanted to, but maybe now I can post some higher quality stuff. I just need to get my lighting skills a little more refined.

Anyhow, how's this weird quad breaker grab you? It's a manufacturing mistake.

Panasonic Lumix FX-100.

Point and shoot, Leica lenses. I highly recommend that a person stop in a real camera store for cameras now that I've had the experience, and not go to WalMart or Circuit City. They were able to fit me with a camera for exactly the things that I wanted to do. Fantastic customer service.

I figured since it will ride on the truck a lot, I went ahead and spent a couple bucks on a Pelican hard case for it too. I can see it getting beat up if I'd have only gotten a regular soft case.

Those close ups are better...I can say that, as I too went and bought another camera to take better quality pictures.
I also need practice with my new camera, as it is not exactly an aim/shoot type of camera. I spent $700 on it, including 2 lenses. It is an Olympus.

I can see from mine, it is going to take some time to learn how to take the pics I like to take.

BTW: I have almost 20,000 pics on a hard drive. In 92 folders and all of them are labeled for easy (really somewhat easier), access for finding them. I would say that in the last 5-6 years I have taken over 100,000 pics. Filing all of these has taken me many, many hours.

Yeah, that's going to be a problem for me. I have mine on the camera's SD card, put them in Photobucket.com, and then wipe the SD card. If something happens to my Photobucket album, I lose it all. I mostly take these pics to share information at the moment, but it would be a shame if some of them were lost for posterity's sake.

Might as well give the camera shop a free plug, since they gave me about a million coupons for free digital photo finishing if I submit the photos online.

I've got to say that I was thoroughly impressed with the customer service I got. I never knew spending so much money could be so enjoyable.

Pelican cases are the favored of professionals. That case will out live us all. Now, got set that thing to manual mode and really start having some fun!
