    Wow what a sunset!!!

    I'd seriously look at framing that tree pic! Great way to set up the frame. Just if you do hang it up, make sure you don't cut any of the left side of that pic. I wouldn't want to cut off any of the tree by the picture frame it's self.

    If cutting of the edge is necessary, I'd consider Photochopping out the branch that extends to the far left. This way it'll appear as if the whole tree is in the picture.
    Thanks, SP, it means a lot to me.

    I love that tree, photograph it everytime I'm there.

    I really tried (can you tell?? ) to capture the pelicans and the Lighthouse. One didn't move, but waws pretty far away. The other(s) moved constantly and were really shy!

    Love the shots, UB... and yeah, the tree is MY favorite, too!

    I should have some pics to post tomorrow... I was down in the Redwoods, and got some sunset shots from the South Oregon beaches. No lighthouse, though... :shrug:

    Coastal. We were in Mt. Shasta, so we drove north to Grants Pass, and then down from there to Klamath, CA and the Redwoods at Prairie Creek... took a bunch of shots bracketed in .cr2 format; each group is 30MB per photo. I expect to join them in an HDR image, but not yet... it would choke this computer. I'll dress up some .jpegs for this thread for now, and do the big stuff on the new Quad Unit I've been working out over here. More incentive to place that big ol' order 'nStuff!

    It is indeed... for that price range it is a fine choice. AA batteries... SD memory... Anti-shake... 37-222mm lens (equivalent to the 35mm lens' view)...
    If you want to use manual controls, you are going to be frustrated; it is one of those cameras with 'pre-set' settings for shutter speed/f-stop/ISO, but Panasonic is pretty good at that stuff.

    I bought a Panasonic for my Mom that was very close to this model, and she loves it. Takes great shots for the computer or up to 5x7" prints. For shots blown up to 8x10" you will see some real grain in the background, but as long as it is bright outside it is fairly minimal all things considered.

    For what you want to do, it's a steal 'nStuff. Let us see some shots from it after you get some!

    I tend to advocate Sony or Canon. The menu system is just so friendly and easy to use. If possible, get a Canon SDxxx model. The A-models are very good. I think you might be able to get one for $200 with anti-shake...i'm not sure...they came out with a bunch of new models so the older ones should cost less.

    That panasonic has more than enough zoom. I find 3x is adequate, 4x is nice, but 6x is a plus.
