The bear, the dog and the fire are all great, jiggin pig. Glad you're liking your new camera. It's a fine piece of machinery. Thanks for sharing them with us!

How would I go about and getting the hummingbirds wings to look like there stopped. WHere you can actually see them. I tried a Faster ISO like 800. then I tried messing with the I think it was F stop. I don't remember. just looking for a couple of hints in that department. I have a lot of trouble with the birds. thanks in advance

jiggin:

Set your camera at iso400 if it's sunny and iso800 if it's cloudy. Turn your camera to Av mode, then spin the top dial until your aperture is as wide open as it can get (the smallest aperture number showing in the viewfinder). That will deliver the fastest possible shutter speed, and it's a fast shutter speed that will help freeze the wings.

You really need a fast one for hummer wings. If you can get to 1/2000 sec that'll take care of it.
