    Yesterday I took my camera along during my walk with the dogs on the heath. Taking photos in combination with dogs and having to use manual focus with the CP 8800 was a challenge :biggrin: The butterflies were too small for the camera to focus on and Dot and Mo sometimes came to keep me company being curious what I was doing :rolleyes:

  2. these are well done. This is not an easy task, especially while keeping track of 2 dogs. No tripod? Very nice!

  4. Impressive results, Roosje. Nice color, DOF and sharpness. The CP8800 does well in your hands.

    Thank you :smile:

    I am very happy with the CP 8800, it is a good allrounder. The past 6 months I have learned a lot about photography, but I still have a lot to learn. Now it is the turn for manual focussing :biggrin:
