This afternoon I took both camera's out to do a few comparison shots. The results shocked me. No wonder I'm so in love with my cute little Sony. My big bulky Sony isn't cutting it with me. I'm sure it is user error and I will get used to it and get better with it but I'll be keeping my little Sony around for comfort and for when I need a good shot.

Both these pictures are straight off the camera's and the only editing I did was for size. What a difference between them!!

The top picture is taken with my spendy new DSLR camera. The bottom picture was taken with my cheap, old, highly reliable point and shoot camera. Both are Sony's.

Well what the hell!! That's why I'm scared to get anything too complicated. I still haven't read the manual on my cell phone...lol
What is your little one? I like that pic just fine!

Interesting comparison. I think you're right, once you really learn the ins and outs of the new camera, you'll be able to do a lot more with it. But I feel your pain. I still need to really study my camera manual. Great macro on that second shot!

How did you get that close with a point and shoot?

You ne3ed to get a macro lens, you will be blown away! Still think you shouldve got a Nikon or canon, thats what they do, and they do it best

Ouch. Maybe you need a class on how to use the new one? I mean, if such a thing is offered.

My sister had to show me how to use my camera. ha ha ha.

I'm pretty lame on that kinda thing though.

Don't be a man - read the instruction manual :)

While I'm looking forward to the day I can afford a DSLR, I like the comfort and portability of my little Fugi point & shoot. It takes some pretty great macro shots when I use the right setting.

I went through this when I got the spendy Canon. I preferred the point and shoot for months. I finally read the manual (after a year) and am doing fine with the SLR. I was just rusty and depending on the automatic features (since the last photography class I took was in 1987, lol).

You have a good eye no matter what you shoot with!! And getting a macro lens will make you very happy.
