Always read the Instructions

I really want to have this....the Nikon Coolpix S8000. I have seen it in action over here and really like the pictures and have gotten good reviews from its owner!



I have this camera and have really enjoyed it but didn't think it had any bells and whistles....wellll, I really should have read all of the manual when I got it several years ago. I found the basics and that is what I have been using. On another blog (can't remember where) they were talking about the Macro setting and the Portrait setting. This weekend I read my manual and guess what....I have those settings also!

I had a lot of fun playing with some of these new settings....





Amy, Mia and Oliver.



Grandpa and the kiddos!











I was really impressed with the quality of the closeness.





I still want to purchase the one above. It is 14 megapixel as compared to my 8 and the zoom is twice what I have now. I think that will be a present to myself soon!

Your flowers look awesome. I really need to take the time to read the manual for my camera...maybe I could give better pictures?

lol, one of my dad's favourites sayings was, when all else fails, follow the instructions.

I love close-ups of flowers! I have an older Nikon Coolpix and I love it! :0)

Yes, it's been helpful for me to read the manual on my Nikon. It defintely does more and better than my old Kodak Easyshare camera. Your flowers photos are beautiful.
