    So, I saved up all my pennies and just received my refurbished Olympus E-410 in the mail! I can't believe I can just snap these pictures in my dark living room! I'm slowly working my way through the manual but I'm so excited I wanted to share SOMETHING.

    Congratulations!

    Great portrait of a wonderful cat who looks like it has a sense of humor and who knows you love it.

    I did a little color correction and lightening.

    Thanks! I've been playing with all the different modes and such. I can't believe how easy this "autofocus" stuff is! I've entered a whole different world. I want to be careful to get to know all the features of my camera and use them to their fullest. I can see how it'd be easy to stick to certain settings and never venture.

    That is a cool looking cat The Olympus cameras a truly nice inventions. Strap a 70-300mm on that puppy and you'll dazzle yourself. The only issue I ever had with the 4/3rds system was limited ISO range. Keep feeding it light and Zuiko glass, you'll be a happy camper...Very cool cat!

    Congrats, Laura! Have fun!
