Yup yup. I decided I should git one for the hell of it. When I travel, I might need some pictures so I can remember what I did and all.

Now, question... It is a 5 megapixel. Is this always gunna take pics too damn big to post? Or are there settings to make em smaller or such on most cameras?

Thanks...

For day to day pix it's worth changing the settings to 2 megapixel which still gives you a good quality pic and the size is much more usable. If you're taking a pic that you want really good quality as in printing it out on a 8X10 then use the 5 megapixel.

All the pix Rocky and I posted were taken at 2 megepixel

Any questions gimme a call bro

I still need your address so I can send back your jellybean!!!!

Yep, what they all said. Now get out and shoot some pics. Also consider a good basic photography book or an online course. First step to better pictures is improving the nut behind the camera.

Good choice AJ a 5 mega pixel gives you as much image resolution as a 35mm film camera.

and yes with the software you can save one full size with maximum resolution and then use editing software to select smaller image size and resolution pictures for posting and save multiple copies of different sizes.
A good belt case helps you carry it on the bike and have it handy.

they should have settings for differnt size pics i like the larger setting the software that comes with the camera should be able to change the size of the pic its a toy play with it to get used to it it takes a couple of sets of batterys to get to know your camera have fun

I think you're right. Most 5MP cameras have the ability to adjust the size in some menu function. (Sorry to state the obvious, but of course bigger pictures means clearer, but fewer of them per memory card.) If all else fails - RTFM I suppose.

If space isnt an issue, take the bigger 5 megapixel pics then save the original pic on your PC and then "resize" a copy of it and save that as a more standard size. (BK requires 800x600 maximum I think it is.)

From everything I've read so far, it's better to take a higher-quality (bigger) picture and crop or resize anyway.

I too just got a new digital camera for my 41st. I've been doin alot of homework findin stuff out about digital photography on the Internet. Lot's of cool stuff actually.

Hope this helps,
