Built in flash,sound,macro, and tons of other stuff for the geek in all of us http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

I don't know if my new Line 6 POD (guitar preamp/effects box) qualifies as a geek toy... I haven't had as much fun since I was a kid anyway. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

The pictures look a little dark. I really like the 20$ pic. Is that as far as it zooms in?

My new geek toy is a 2000' Civic SI. Electron Blue. Cost 18k$ Sticker Price. Last one left in this state. 160 hp, VTEC, really nice.

But it's more of a nessecity as, it's my mode of transportation.

If it isn't too much Steve, I REALLY want to see how sharp a 1600x1200 pic is coming from your camera.

Thumbs up

13/16th of an inch ain't close enough http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif Hand held with the worst lighting in the world.

Some were shot indoor using floresent lighting and no flash which is another tough challenge for a camera.

Please adjust the gamma and brightness of YOUR monitor.

All the people in the pics are "geeks" and I'm not sure if I'm in their or not.

I will try and shoot some biggies for you at 1600x1200 and post same.
