    0402 package, 1mm x 0.5mm. Have fun with that

    Not really that bad if you have a fine point iron (or two, for removing them) and some fine tipped tweezers.

    It's a pretty detailed photo, if I may say so. Only way to improve any further is by getting more light on these little buggers.
    He was dying when I found him. If you look closely, he's missing a leg

    They're naturally pretty docile though. This is a nymph boxelder bug... an adult wouldn't have minded the camera much either. They don't bite, they just get curious and crawl all over the place.

    That is just about the sharpest image that's come out of the camera yet. The bug took up only a small section in the center of the shot - the lens won't focus any closer. Doesn't hurt that I'm getting pretty good with the manual focus. Picked up a UV filter for the lens today for those days when I'm outside wandering around.

    A picture of our wacky weather day. This cloud gave us rain, sleet, thunder, and lightning.

    Taken with my new Polaroid UV filter which, as I found, is rather prone to lens flare. But not in this shot

    No nicknames for the Nikon yet? I would have thought you would have been calling it Nicki Imaj or something equally as silly by now.

    Nice. Next on the agenda is a circular polarizing filter - that should help with some of my outdoor pictures a bit.

    The CPL filter is here, and I will now never be found without one. Paid for itself in one day.

    That's a bit of a difference right there


    BTW bumped on a Photomatix software that uses three photos of the same object/landscape with different exposure levels, for ex:

    You take these three photos:


    ... and you get something like this:


    There are a bunch of useful filters and it allows very interesting results

    Yeah, this camera has built in HDR. Haven't used it yet, but I'll get around to it.
