    Well I've been sick the past few days, started feeling a bit better so I ran out to take some pictures. My dad lent me his Nikon D70. It was dark out, but I think they came out pretty nice. I can't wait for a nice sunny day and a good area to shoot. Eventually I'll upgrade to a Nikon 5100. And I took a shot of my brothers fox.

    Hmmmm... I would have expected better quality from a digital camera. :/

    I'd check some of the settings. Those don't look much better than a lot of camera phone pics.

    With those pictures I definitely like the black housing more.

    Well if I upload a phone pic then one of these, you'd see a huge difference in clarity. the camera is on auto, I didn't touch any settings yet. Just trying to get used to using it.
    Really? I kinda miss them but at the same time I don't. I feel like the clears clean up the front end. I still have the other lights if I wanna swap em in.

    Agreed. I've never used a camera like this before. So I'm gonna start messing with the settings soon.
    Will do lol. Any pointers?

    Read a manual. Messing with the settings will do nothing for you if you don't know what anything means. ISO, shutter speed, aperture, etc.. you have to understand what each does and how they all work together. Practice doesn't always make perfect, especially if you don't understand mechanics of photography. That's basically the only pointers I have.

    Play around with the ISO and the shutter speed. if you can put it into manual mode
