Hi, congratualtions on your purchase, a few things to recommend for you -
get yourself some 2000mAh NiMh rechargeable batteries, a good steady tripod
and you may want to purchase the Lens Adapter which will enable you to use
52mm thread lenses & filters (although these block the viewfinder & flash!).
steady hands make a big difference with this camera (not too sure why it is
quite uncomprimising compared with other cameras - might just be me and the
shutter button). The differnt modes are very good and night time long
exposures work very well ... I have a range of different shots in my gallery
Hope that gives you some useful info, regards ... Zol.
