More > have captured some great shots as well as quite a few not-so-great images. I decided it was time for an upgrade. Being a techie, I decided not to opt for just any ol’ camera. I wanted a suitable one with lots of buttons, switches, bells, whistles, megapixels, and whatever gadgets I could find. I eventually purchased one that met those requirements. It also turned out to be a great learning experience. In recent weeks I have wrestled with ASA settings, filters, RAW versus JPG images, and other things that I had never dreamed existed. I think the result has been worth it. I have snapped some great pictures in the past few weeks, better than anything that I have ever taken before.< Less
