We got a new camera - Canon S3. Isn't that amazing? We were maybe 7 feet away, and that's the picture Paul was able to take!

That's a painted turtle, by the way.

Wow! 0_0 What a great picture!! I'm envious of your new cmera! :)

Thats really good.

Dose that mean well see more Miss.Hoppy pictures???

(This is kind of of topic but I never know Karen do you have any other pets?)

08-31-2006, 07:40 AM
Wow, :D .Such Clarity, and he was 7 feet away!!!!! :eek:

Time for me to invest in a better camera. That picture is amazing!!!

08-31-2006, 07:55 AM
I am so jealous over your camera. ;)

That's a really good picture Karen, thaks for sharing!

08-31-2006, 08:06 AM
You would never think you were 7 feet away! :eek:

It looks more like 2 feet away. What a cute turtle and that photo of him is really good. It has ALOT of detail. Great camera. :)

(This is kind of off topic but I never know Karen do you have any other pets?)

Not right now. Miss Hoppy is an only bunny.

Is this what happens to you when you spend too much time in one spot? Green stuff grows all over you?

Just kidding.

What a wonderful photo. I went directly to the net to look in to buying a Canon camera like yours. There is such a variation in prices. All a little too high for my pocketbook right now.

Great, great photo!

Thanks for sharing.

Maybe a new photo of Ms. Hoppy would be fun for all of us! ;)

Awsome picture.

you'll love the S3 - having the S2 - I'm in love with. :)

Hee hee - that is the only turtle of the eight I saw that had the green stuff all over his shell. It covers parts of the marsh they were in, but any other turtle would probably have cleared a spot, or come up therough the green stuff vertically so a minimum of gunk got on his/her shell, but not this one. This was the "special" turtle! (The Karen turtle - I am well known for getting marker, pen, whatever - all over me and not noticing.)

08-31-2006, 01:26 PM
*dies* That's awesome! I love a good picture of a Painted Turtle. They're always so darned cute. (I'm a little bit biased with having two, but....) GREAT picture Paul and Karen. Thanks for sharing. And now.... Miss Hoppy anyone?

08-31-2006, 02:14 PM
Wow! What a great photo.

   Here is a photo from a few minutes ago. Miss Hoppy is not a cooperative model.



08-31-2006, 07:47 PM
WOW!!!! She is looking right back at ME :eek:

H-E-L-L-O Miss Hoppy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I see you TOO!!!!!!!! :D

Is her nose wiggling? ;)

That was great!!!! ;)

08-31-2006, 07:50 PM
I love that the new camera is so good that you all can see her pretty lashes!

08-31-2006, 08:06 PM
Great picture! It's excellent! I have a cannon, too :D It looks... professional!

08-31-2006, 08:08 PM
I can't wait to see ALL of her. The dark markings on her face are striking!!
I did enjoy that close up of her lashes too!!! Aren't those digital pictures wonderful?

I can see every stand of her hair!!!! In detail!!!!! :eek:

It is as though I might even see my own reflection~~ in her eye! :eek:

08-31-2006, 08:19 PM
HI Miss Hoppy!
nice to see you!
the S2 is amazing so I can imagine how amazing the S3 is!

08-31-2006, 09:36 PM
Hello, Miss Hoppy, how nice to see you! Wow, I can almost see my own reflection in her eye! Hey Mom, how about a little more of her pretty face showing in the next post? It's awfully hard to see her well in your avatar!

08-31-2006, 09:39 PM
:eek: That's a great, and extremly clear picture! What an amazing picture! I think I mught have to get a Canon PowerShot S3! After I research it a bit, of course. Sounds like a great camera!

08-31-2006, 09:43 PM
Not right now. Miss Hoppy is an only bunny.
KAREN & PAUL!!!!!!!!! I can change all that, and Miss Hoppy wouldn't even notice! Want two in love Red-earred sliders? Both rescues, and need a much bigger tank. Don't tell me you are allergic to turtles..it won't work lol! :p P.S. Remember..I'm a local, and delivery could be done in person. Get your tank setup, and make it huge....50 gallons would do for now! :D Great picture by the way! I'm amazed Paul got the shot at all as turtles are so fast to move at any hint of danger. :eek:

:D Theres that cutie!!!
She look like Tedd in some ways. Not that she looks like a boy but the colouring and her head

Those ar SO good! :eek: After seeing so many pics on PT, I know I'll definitely get a Canon someday...

Congrats Paul and Karen, I'm sure you're having lots of fun with the new camera!

09-01-2006, 12:42 PM
WOW! I just bought the Canon Powershot S2 ... but I haven't learned how to do much with it yet. Will I be able to get shots LIKE THAT???? I hope so, that's why I spent the $$$ on it!!! :D

09-02-2006, 11:27 AM
Wow what an amzing camera! Im jealous! Thats a really good picture!

09-02-2006, 12:10 PM
Amazing!! such detail and both pictures are wonderful captures.
We're getting either the S2 or S3 in October, and I can't wait. These pictures are making me really wish that October would come fast!

09-02-2006, 12:21 PM
Great picture by the way! I'm amazed Paul got the shot at all as turtles are so fast to move at any hint of danger. :eek:

We were not close at all, that's what is so great about the camera! We were maybe 7 feet away, and on a boardwalk a couple feet above water level, but the camera has an amazing zoom lens.

09-02-2006, 12:32 PM
Wow that is an awesome picture!
