I also got a SanDisk Extreme III 2 GB CompactFlash card to just round it all out. In speaking with one of the photography guys at The Evil Twin's office, he told me I had chosen wisely and that I wouldn't be disappointed with this camera. One of the photography guys uses his Rebel XT in the professional setting and turns out gorgeous photos.
Of course, I know a camera is only as good as the individual behind it, but I think this will be great for candid shots of the kids, vacation snaps, etc. My photography insider says the items I purchased will be as much as and MORE than I could ever need in this type of camera.
The camera takes 3 frames per second. Maybe I can even get a decent shot of Sissy with this one. So far, most pictures we have of her are simply "blurs" - she moves before the shutter clicks on our old camera.
I think we'll end up giving the Sony CyberShot to Buddy to play around with. We have the memory cards and USB connector, etc. He has his own computer running Windows XP, which was the Evil Twin's computer up until last summer when we upgraded for him.
I'm such a geek. I hope I can learn more about photography and maybe even get a little better at it.
