    You guys are unbelievable. I just got an Olympus C700, but I don't think I'll ever be able to do what you guys do. I shot a card full of photos at auto setting, now have to read how to use all the other functions...manual sure isn't laid out to clearly...similar to Digitrax manuals!

    Hi Gary,
    My camera is an Olympus C700 ultra zoom, if you need help with yours "SHOUT".
    In the meantime, try this.

    On the Olympus C700, rotate the dial to A/S/M
    Now power up the camera – press OK button (in the middle)
    Press right button next to the OK button for “MODE MENU” PRESS RIGHT BUTTON AGAIN. (New screen)
    ISO set it to 100 (press ok) move down and set A/S/M TO “A” (press ok)
    Press left button next to “ok” to go back.
    Press bottom button then right button for Picture and set that to “SHQ” (press ok)
    Go down to the bottom for “SETUP”
    Press right button next to “OK” for custom
    All the way to the bottom and press “Custom”
    Set Fno to f8 and move down one and set shutter speed to 1/30 press left button twice
    To go back to normal screen then press OK to quit.

    Camera is now set up for indoor photo shooting using good lighting, if you just want to take a photo outdoors, move the dial to AUTO and take pictures, for your railroad stuff, move the dial back to A/S/M --- There are loads more settings you can use, but lets try this first.

    I'm moonstruck (again)

    Shamus, Tyson,

    Your photo merging results are absolutely stunning!!
    Of course the original modelling/photo by you Tyson is so fantasticaly realistic it lends itself to all manner of backgrounds, congratulations my friend.

    Using computers in such a manner could become a hobby in itself, the mind boggles at the possibilities.

    My hat is off to you two whiz kids! :) :)

    Gary when it comes to "doctoring" the photo it's the software not the camera. Software that will let you layer and erase will really speed things up. The photo I already posted here and this one (keeping with Paul's western theme, I used a Dakota Badlands photo) are only 2 layers and can be done in about 10 minutes. Kettlestack thank you for the nice words about my original photo that we are using. :D

    Playing with Tyson's Picture

    Hope that Tyson doesn't mind me playing with his photo when he's not around:D :D

    Looks like there's fixing to be a "Gullywasher" :D Done with Airbrush.

    Shamus, Thanks for your offer to help. I wasn't having much luck finding the info you gave me in the instructions. I was able to follow the steps you gave until I got to the custom button. I can not find the options to set F stop and shutter speed. Choices displayed are: AE lock, Info, ISO, A/S/M, Slow, Digital zoom, Fulltime AF, Mic (?), Function, a symbol I don't recognize, and WB. And all I can seem to do is toggle between these choices. On the bottom of the screen it shows G0>OK. When I press the OK I get a screen with options for Shortcut and Custom button. If I press custom button I'm back where I started. I would think I'm missing something simple, it can't be that dificult to use! I will keep looking thru the manual for awhile and check back here later. Thank you so much.

    Tyson, I understand that the software is where you play with special effects, but from the above you can see it will be a long while before I even attempt that sort of thing!

    Gary

    Gary - As Shamus suggested "good lighting" will make a world of difference. I'm in the process of hanging more "daylight tubes" now.
