new Cam

well, holding off on a new tank for a while, I've decided to get a new cam instead.

since I'm fairly versed in using analog SLR camera, I wanted to get a cam that would offer a similar degree of preformance and features, but not cost several grand 8O

so I chose the Nikon Coolpix 5700

http://www.nikonusa.com/usa_product/...roductNr=25504

i found a good price online, and then there is a $100 rebate, so it was a bargain I hope

haven't mastered all the menus and whatnot yet, so it'll be a few more days before I start crankin out quality pics

zoom demo

sorry, these pictures were taken in a back-lit sky ... was too late in the day to be shooting the water, but the effect is still neat.

shots were taken in Parital Auto, with focus fixed at infinity.

first pic is 32x, second is 8x, third is no zoom

32x is 8x opti and 4x digital

8x is 280mm (optical telephoto)

no zoom is 35mm (wide angle)

Wow that is awesome!!! You can take pictures of your fish from your neighbor's house . I wish I could afford such a cool camera; I still rely on film for everything but the closest shots. My digital is good, but nowhere near that good--it's only a 2.1 mp with a 3x optical 2x digital.
