Olympus C-750 Ultra-Zoom. 4.0 megapixel, 10x optical zoom and 40x digital zoom, I also got a 1.7 Olympus telephoto lens for it (you need a step ring as well). I purchased an Olympus tripod that I only ever use when whale watching and also a cheap little tripod that sits well on the car bonnet. I have a number of XD picture cards that I labeled 1,2,3,4 etc to keep them sorted and I keep them in an old plastic film canister to keep them safe and dry. It takes 4 AA batteries and I have a couple of spare sets that I keep charged. There is a remote for the camera but I`ve never used it Everything is kept in an old and scruffy but well padded camera bag with multiple pockets.
As much as I love my camera and the gear that goes with it it is only as good as the person taking the photo. I took several of the kids the other night (they were in darkness) and then realised that for the first time ever I had forgotten to take the lens cover off.
Some days after I have spent a couple of days taking pictures I find myself in "photo-mode", I`m looking at different things and taking snaps of them by blinking my eyes!
