I will definitly check that stuff out. I went to Traverse City over 6 years ago, so I was just a kid. It'* been a while.

Canon Powershot S400. Nice camera, but you can't control too many custom features. I plan on getting a Digital SLR within the next few months.

Well, I don't know how your camera works, but this is what I do for mine:

-Get a tripod.
-Manual mode: ISO 100, 10 to 15 second exposure, Landscape mode (to get more detail for landscapes), Flash Off

Without that long exposure, barely any light would be picked up, and the pictures would be practically black. Thankfully the moon was there to offer some light.

Tried my hand last night. 100 ISO, 15 second exposure, on my windowsill pointed upwards.




Photoshopped for brightness though :(




I do believe my Canon A75 has more manual features. Not sure though, I'm looking at pics of the Canon S400 through Google. Seems to be less options on the dial.

The dial is pretty plain, but there are a lot of menus where you can play with things. Still though, there isn't much to work with.

Hmm, I figured you had more in the menus. All my stuff is on the dial:


Manual
Aperture Priority
Shutter Speed Priority
Program AE (more control over auto)
Auto

Portrait
Landscape
Low Light
Sport/Motion
Motion Blur
Scenic
Photostitch
Movie




Here'* a cropped out (full-size) shot of the moon:



The refraction in the double-pane window in my room created a pretty cool effect, eh? The camera was looking up at about a 45 angle to the window...
