    Hi Mietek, when I have time i'll try to experiment on the new method you suggested.

    Thanks.

    Just a note, as I resurrect this old thread... My new dslr camera is coming today!! We purchased a Nikon D3300 DSLR Camera with a 2 lens bundle for a very good sale price, we just couldn't pass it up and the camera has good reviews. I can't wait for the UPS truck! I have a couple of Phals at the tail end of their bloom cycle - I've already taken a few pictures with my little point and shoot and will try some more with the new Nikon to compare. I was checking this thread out for the advice on what to do to get good pictures. We'll see how that goes!

    That's a very good buy Carol. I'm sure you'll be pleased with the D3300. Looking forward to seeing pictures with the new camera.

    Well, I forgot a setting and was in a hurry, but this was one of the best pictures I took last night. LOVE the camera, it just feels great in my hands, solid and smooth. And I can see my photography will only go up from here. The files are huge - if I want to have one blown up as a print on canvas to hang, no problem!

    Very sharp!

    I have a D5300 coming on Thursday this week myself. Now I am drooling in anticipation.

    The best one is clear and sharp even with extreme magnification... so much fun! My own vision isn't that great, I used to use a regular SLR many years ago. Today I'm sure I wouldn't be able to tell if it were in focus or not, I need that autofocus! Darn getting old anyways!
