    I like the lily pond shot. How easy is the camera to use? I find that with mine, with a "film" speed apparently fixed at 100, that the shutter is so slow I always have to concentrate a great deal on keeping the camera steady. Low light shooting without a flash or a tripod is virtually impossible.

    the camera is very easy to use ..but like most thinks hard to marster...like red eye..it has 3 settings and if you forget which setting your on..red eye.
    I am still getting use to looking through a viewer and not a eye glass.
    yes keeping it steady has it issues but, like most things practice,practice.practice...
    I am having trouble photoing my inside aquarium's I have two 4' and a 2' footer with fresh water trop's in them.
