Today, I decided to get serious about my photo-taking. So instead of my Canon IXUS 860 IS it was my Olympus SP-55oUZ that I placed my trust in. It has an 18X zoom, is a 7.1 megapixel and takes sharper pictures than the Canon. Unfortunately, it is really slow - in starting up and in-between shots. It has full manual settings, aperture/shutter priority settings and of course it can be used in auto mode. I played around with some settings and though the pictures were not disappointing to me, I began to harbour thoughts of learning to use a DSLR. Maybe I should get a Canon Powershot at the next IT fair. It is not just the camera of course, so I should not be using cameras as an excuse of shots that are not up to expectation. Which was why I did some reading up on picture composition and went to Youtube for advice and enlightenment and what I found there could make books obsolete. Anyway I had fun today.
