LOL kevin looking at your pics and reading about all the manual settings you used was what inspired me to go camera shopping to replace my old point and shoot sanyo digicam.

I want a new cam, and won't be able to afford the one I really want, so I'm looking into the s7000 and see, something with a little more than my model nikon and still easier on the wallet than a highend prosumer non-slr digicam.

I hate it to say it, but I almost wish I had went with the s7000. Everything I would like that the s5k doesn't have is on the s7k...hotshoe, manual focus assist, ISO 800 at at 3mp, focus ring on lens...for tank shots it has a super macro mode which lets you focus to like 1 or 2 cm if I recall...here I go again I shoulda..woulda..coulda...I'll stop before I make myself angry. The one plus of the 5000 is the 10x optical zoom..ya baby!

I've thought about it, but I bought it online from one of those super discount places and I'm afraid if I try to exchange it I might not have any camera. I look at its shortcomings and decided to call them "challenges" . Oh yeah...if you're seriously looking at the S7000 there's a $100 rebate out for it right now if I'm not mistaken.

Well that sounded pretty good, after rebate I can pick it up for right at 400 bucks. Asked the wife, and well...let's just say it ain't gonna happen soon, LOL.
