In my defense, it's been quite the interesting and busy past couple of weeks if you've noticed in my blog posts. But I'm writing today to show you that although I am occasionally late, this is definitely something I plan on completing!
Lesson #1 was to read my manual, and I'm proud to say that I actually did it! The manual has all the markings of a book that's been perused during lunch breaks and right before bedtime. It's dog-eared and highlighted like no one's business!
So what are the top cool things that I learned just from reading the manual? I'm glad you asked, here's the top 7 things that perked my curiosity (7 whole things! See, I did read it!):
7 TOP COOL THINGS!
- I can display an electronic level on the screen to ensure that my pictures don't come out crooked.
- I can record my information (or copyright information) on each picture taken.
- I learned a little more about a fast shutter vs. a slow shutter, but I'm pretty sure that's Lesson #2
- I learned what "recomposing" a picture means.
- The camera has a wind filter feature that I can use if recording movies on a windy day
- Eye-Fi cards allow you to upload pictures wirelessly (gotta get me one of those!)
- And probably, the coolest feature that I will use a lot is that I can apply creative filters on a photo - after taking the picture- right on the camera. This is great for days when I don't want to bother to edit a photo. The creative filters allow me to apply different intensities of soft focus, black and white grainy, toy camera, and miniature effects.

If I hadn't read my manual, I don't know how long it would've taken me to find this little gem of information. Maybe never?
Happy photo taking! Off to my next lesson!
