I figured you wouldn't mind me bringing this up since you just got yours. Wanted to see what others had to say and can't believe I missed the manual settings mode.

I tried M mode yesterday..just to see what effect will diff shutter speed and aperture will have at the Image...yet to begin to use it though...
In M mode they also give a slider at right lower bottom which helps to decide exposure is proper or not
also histogram is too available. I have just learnt to read histograms recently and I find them really useful!

I wish I understood histograms, can't figure them out.

What miliamp hour rating are the batterires? Usually a 1200mah takes around 90 minutes to charge. An 1800mah takes close to two hours.

@ chromenut : I d like to help you out.
It seemed to me like greek and latin until I came to know it was a simple graph!
x axis (horizontal) is light (left side low and towards right light increases)
y axis (vertical) is pixels of your picture (higher is the line at a particular pt in x axis means maximum pixels are at that light intensity)
for a normal or good exposure maximum height of curve should be in middle
if its peaking on left= under exposed
peaking on right = over exposed


its a very crude explanation but I hope it helps a bit

When I charge my batteries it takes several hours to charge. I have 3 chargers that hold 4 batteries each, when I'm prepping for a shoot I have all 3 going the night before. Reason for this is if you have a decent charger, it will charge to 100% capacity and then trickle charge the battery which is good for rechargeables and their life span.

thanks macgarthur...what you told makes sense.
I checked the manual came with the charger which stated for 2100mah full charge time was 11 hours..so no confusion now
