Thanks. I've been looking for a while and found that this particular model got some of the best reviews. Now I have to learn to use it.

very jealous!

quick tip for better pics: right before you are about to take that perfect picture of your car... step back, about 30-50 ft, get down on a knee, and then take the pic
