For those who want to know the new camera is an HP Photosmart 945
It is a 5.3 Megapixel digital camera with 8x optical and 7x digital zoom. The insurance company gave it to us in replacement of the previous camera, an HP Photosmart 320.
It is really a fantastic camera and has lots of awesome features. I am experimenting with focal lengths, shutter speeds, exposure settings and white balance adjustments. The photos of the tennis were taken with a shutter speed of 1/30 at night using the tungsten white balance to counter the glare of the lights on the tennis courts. I found that any quicker shutter speed wouldn't let enought light in and gave me a grainy shot, whereas slower was too slow for the action.
I need to buy some magazines on digital photography to steer me along a little.
I guess I could also ask Darren Rowse of Blogger Idol Fame becuase he has a digital photography blog.
