  1. 1st attempt at black light pics

    I noodled around for awhile trying out my camera on blacklight pics. It's an old Kodak DX7440. I have a good 18" GE blacklight that provides enough output to bring out the flourescence, but I'm still not getting the aperture settings right. This one pic of the whole tray came out fairly good.

  4. Any thoughts on SAMSUNG S630 6.0 MP

    THis is the digital camera I have owned for about 6 months. Was fairly inexpensive and has digital and manual zoom.

  5. Anyone have experience with a Fuji Finepix A303?
