I bit the bullet and got a Canon Powershot A80, as I promised. It’s a very nice camera with superb quality. As its my first real foray into the world of photography I’m finding the camera simple enough to understand without reading (all) the manual, yet complicated enough for me to continue to be suprised by it.
For the first couple of weeks, I’ve been playing. Unfortunately didn’t get any shots of the total lunar eclipse last Saturday (bloody cloudy, wasn’t it) but I did get some interesting long exposure shots on the way home.
I must install Gallery at some point. However much I dislike the complexity of it, it’s still the best one I can find that doesn’t require me to manually create all sorts of thumbnails myself. Unless any of you wise surfers have come across a better one?
