That was and still is an excellent semi-pro camera. We have a Canon G5 of similar features, and even though my new Nikon $150 point-and-shoot gets more use aboard (because I am less concerned if I drop it in the drink), I prefer the Canon for "pretty" shots taken at full RAW resolution.

Congratulations, and a nice batch of photos. I'm planning on spending some time in the bight later this year. From what I hear it's an excellent place to do so.

ZumZum- The Bene was nice... but not as nice as i thought it might be. We had a lot of fun on it and we chartered it again for the proposal cruise but it's not really my style of boat i guess. I don't like the furling main... that's for sure! It was a 4 day class and we were underway for about 72 hours of that.

Valiente- I know exactly what you mean. We love the Fuji except for it's a little bulky. I do like that it has the 10x optical zoom... most digitals in that price range only have 3x-4x optical zooms.... no fun! Our point and shoot was great until i broke it.

PBzeer- The bight is a fantastic place to anchor and has been used as a safe haven since the early 1700's. Spanish privateers took full advantage of this area for multiple reasons. Blackbeard would most certainly have moored the Queen Anne's Revenge here at some point as well. The ocean side is usually full of nice seashells because it's not a heavily walked piece of shoreline. The fishing is good there if you know what you're doing. We kinda didn't know how to rig lines properly so we were fishing more on the bottom... hence the 8 sharks we caught!

I'll second on the Canon. Go RAW! Great colors that way. I also use an $89 Kodak more often in the cockpit and found it takes incredible pictures too.

In the arial pcture of Cape Lookout - that southern tip has the biggest sea shells I have ever seen. Most places they're picked over before I wake up but not there. You can fill a sack with softball size and larger shells in minutes.

Didn't read the copyright part before I made that compass picture my wall paper . . . oh well. Nice shot.

I'm not worried about personal use retclt... i just don't want to see them used for commercial purposes. The versions i have posted here are only 72dpi and i have the hi-res on the hard drive... including the date and time stamps in the files. Have fun with them... i have the compass shot as my desktop right now too.

Of course i know the risk i take in posting any photo online.
