    I've been thinking of getting a new digital camera for a while, and I finally did, it took about 2 months to locate one but I finally found an Olympus C4000! I'm still figuring it out, but I can tell it's going to be a great camera, all of the manual settings are great, you can even adjust the shutter speed up to 16 seconds! Great for exposing more than just the front of a model train. Here is one of the first pictures I've taken with it, I'm still playing around with it, so they will get better, but I just had to post one. This was taken with no flash, at F11, 2.5 sec exposeure and ISO 400 eq.

    Nice camera. :cool: I checked mine and I seem to be missing a few controls. :confused: :confused: Like I got ON, OFF and ZOOM. A lot simpler, but I'll bet I can't take pictures as good as the ones you're getting. :)

    Good luck with your new camera.

    Woow, seems to be a great camera, great sharpness in the depth.
    My Canon Powershot S30 has a limit of F8, but me and my budget aggree that should do for a while.

    That's a good camera Mike. The depth of field is excellent.

    Nice camera Mike and have lots of fun with it. I need to get one but don't know if they make one for an old dummy. Looking forward to seeing more pictures of that great railroad your building. Ron

    I'm still playing around with the super macro, look at the detail this camera can capture! This SD90 almost looks real! Except for the huge handrails. The picture looses something in the compression, but at the full file size, (1.63MB) it is really amazing. I am going to have to get a tripod too, it is very hard to hold the camera steady for a 5 sec exposure!

    Here is the same picture just cropped, so you can't see the lack of track!

    Wow, that is going to be a great camera for model photos! You've got excellent depth of field there.

    I have an Olympus C730 and it only stops down to f8.6. I wish it went to f22 like my SLR!
