Hey Adrian,

Nice pictures.Do you find the digital camera ok for this sought of work.I have many shots of my kids half in pictures and lovely blurry moments.

I find between the time I take the shot and the time it does its digital thing is slow. Watches are ok as they dont move very fast.

Hi Aaron,

I have a Minolta Dynax 7D digital SLR with an ultra fast memory card. I can't remember without looking but I think it's capable of 3 shots per second.

Hey Adrian,

Sounds like a nice camera,I have no idea what it is like but sounds nice.

I am using a Nikon coolpix 4100 which is my entry into digital photography.My film camera is an old Cannon T70 with all little extras but since the little point and shoot digital came home the T70 has sat on the shelf.

The longer I take to work out the digital world the better the prices get,eventually a good digital SLR with a high pixel rate will be on the cards.

Speaking of which,does yours have a special high speed card or were you reffering more to an internal card for your camera.If not can these cards be purchased for other cameras like mine.

I've attached an image of the camera that I just nicked of the Internet. The memory card is a Lexmar Compact flash 1 GB. The pictures I took were with a 300mm lens with a X 2 adapter.
