Mucking about with new digital camera

Just bought a Canon Powershot A95, still getting used to it.

Cropped macro picture of coin. Bit out of focus at the top, but manual focus used and no flash despite being indoors. White balance adjustment for tungsten lighting works a treat on this shot - not a hint of yellow.

Sandra's cat, Digger. A sod to photograph. This is the best of about 20 shots of him I tried to get that evening.

Digger again, with evil laser eyes. Note to self - don't photograph cats with the flash turned on...

Dan in the Waterloo. Alex took this. Red-eye reduction is turned off in this shot.

Alex in all his high-resolution glory. Red-eye reduction off again.

The popebanana in full swing. A bit overexposed and quite noisy (check out the so-called "black" areas on the high-res image, particularly Pete and Vic's fleeces), probably too high an ISO number. I look forward to being able to compose this sort of shot using manual settings.

Silly Christmas lights, 2nd December for heaven's sake. Santa climbing a giant illuminated penis to enter your bedroom. Yeah right. Again too noisy, auto-scene settings using too high an ISO number.

Comparison of the effects of ISO setting: top image = ISO 50, bottom inage = ISO 400. Very grainy at ISO 400. Both images taken without flash using tungsten light balance.
