My husband and I just got this camera from our son-in-law this weekend so we have been practicing. a little bit. For me it is very complicated so I will have to take a class. I have always had trouble just using a basic litlle "point and shoot". These are my first attempts. I know i have a long way to go but I look forward to learning something new.Now maybe I'll collect pictures of old junk instead of having to own it. It would sure cut down on the unmanagable clutter around here.
