Awesome. Thanks.

Yeah, the shaky hand thiog is bad. I'm going to be playing with brcing tonight while i'm shooting. Should be interesting.

Also, why the hell do they invert the f numbers? Larger numbers should correspond to larger apertures, even if it's an arbitrary number assignment. i know that the jumps between numbers corresponds to an exaxct doudling of the light let in; I just think they could have made a more useful convention that did the same thing but corellated the numbers to epected "size."

Photos seem to be better at a low ISO. It isn't often that I used a higher ISO, especially in lower lights. Low lighting plus high ISO almost always shows grain in the photos. I'm glad I can change aperture adn shuttter speeds now. Much better. :)

I need to get a tripod soon.. And a better flash. The onboard flash is pretty crappy. Luckily, the gift certificate I will be getting sono covers half the cost of the better flash Nikon produices. Hooray!

I honestly don't know where the aperture numbers come from - thats something I should look up.

Photos are clearer at low ISO, yes. Bear in mind you have the option to go up though, especially in very low-light situations where you don't want to use a flash. Also, test out how much grain it really puts in. Mine, I can go up to about ISO 400 without it adding that much. A lot more is there at 800 and 1600, but noise ninja will take care of a good amount of it. Just test it out so you know what your options are - and its going to do a lot better than your old camera at the higher ISO settings.

Good luck!
