    Shamus,
    Excellent tips! I haven't used my 750UZ indoors much and now I'll have a clue! I am printing out your suggestions to keep in my camera bag.

    Here is one I grabbed this morning. I didn't have time to set the camera, so I went to the sports mode and got this one...

    Shamus, I am in awe at your beautiful layout! You must be very proud.

    I took out a display track the other day to take a photo or two and see what my stuff looks like close up. Here is the end of a ATSF combine (built many moons ago by Jim Drennan) and an old Globe box car. I see my ballasting techniques need refining too!

    I am...

    ...afeared that we ain't done with "this" yet.

    Here's a shot of an Atlas N Trainmaster. When I look at it on screen it appears to be G(ee!)

    This is the link to the expanded image- the one below is what the Gauge let me put up.

    Cameras

    I have a Nikon N5 , a Minnolta 90EX QD auto 35mm , and a Nikon Cool Pix 3100.
    I have a grip on outside shots with the N5 but my layout shots with the 3100 leave alot to be desired.
    The Minnolta is a fantastic camera and in auto mode sometimes takes better pics than the N5 ouside.

    Very nicely composed photograph Fifer. The Nikon Cool Pix 3100, is an excellent camera for Layout photography.

    I finally have joined the ranks of digital camera owners. Just the other day I purchased a Canon A60. 2.0 Mega Pixels so nothing extravagant like everyone elses but I love it, it is so much fun.

    The option for additional lenses was a big selling point for me. Not that I know how or when to use a different lens, but the fact that I could add them on later sold me. What kind of lens are you using shamus?

    My brother, father and I share a Kodak unit right now, a few years old. I'm pondering the Fujifilm A210 so my wife and I have a digital camera full-time. I know it's not the top of the line, but looks to be pretty good for the price ($265CDN).

    Hi,
    My camera hasn't got the inter-changable lens option, the camera just happens to have a great lens for photography. Typical of Olympus I would expect, always did use a good lens.

    Shamus,

    I think that I asked you this question already, but I can't remember where. :eek:

    How do you get such a long depth-of-field in your photos?

    Thanks,
  20. shamus

    Hi Jim,
    I set my Olympus C700UZ camera to f8 and a shutter speed of 1/2 second with the lighting I have. This gives me a good depth of field.
