Nope Tiger Direct had ones like that between $280 - $380 I believe. I can look at them on the camera and I don't trust anything until I see it on my computer screen.

It's all I use. which gives me about 120 photos as well.
If you study my edit a little more you will also notice the sand is more natural in color and you can see more detail within it for the same reason.I wont explain how I accomplished this unless you request it... its almost a tutorial on it's own.... but as for the shadow, yes, that was done using the clone tool. Which I'll admit was done pretty quikly. Only a keen eye would notice that the clone source is very close. Rocks being random, it'll probably never be noticed unless someone told them.
I have 2 1gb cards by Toshiba that at the time were supposed to be high speed at 20mb/per sec. (something like that).

I looked in my manual and it says that it automatically create the JPEG if I use RAW or TIFF quality. Nothing mentioned about turning that off. I might contact Panasonic and see what they say.

If you don't mind sharing how you did it either here, a PM or even an email, that would be great. It seems so diifcult to find out and keep up with everything PS can do but one day I will hopefully be good at it.

And I did notice the rocks. I even showed it to my wife. I was just taken bakc by the color you got back in the shot because it was as deep as the dragonfly itself was to the naked eye.

VBS you did a great job on Joe's dragon. I would love to know what you did or if there is a tutorial someplace you could just send a link.

So you are getting 120 images on a 1GB card. Do you mind if I ask what brand of card, or does that matter?

Thanks Joe and Jobet, Give me a few and I'll share it here for everyone. Tim already has a tutorial of mine that hasn't been put up yet, in reference to B/W, So I dont know if he would also include this one in the tutorial section with it... maybe someone can bug him if they like it
I will say that some of the methods I use are partially inheritied from multiple ideas and tutorials that are readily available. In some ways it may be concidered intermediate or even advanced photoshop skills, although I rarely use filters other than perhaps gaussion blur unless I'm attempting to be overly creative.Much of what I've learned however, is just by playing around.
When teaching I attempt to explain what is going on in each step so that others don't have to 'remember' exactly how it is done, but why it was done and/or used. In doing this, it forces me to learn a little more myself and also because of the understanding that many have a tough time with layers. So if it is as lengthy as this long winded explaination, don't bite my head off! Also don't let its length scare you away from learning. It is actually alot easier than it's appearence.
Hmmm, While I'm thinking about it, perhaps it should be posted in the software section when it's ready, rather than eating Joe's thread up and where more people that are interested will find it. Mind if I use your photo for my tutorial Joe?

With this shot I don't see how you took advantage of RAW and its abilities, unless you messed up the wb and fixed it so we didn't know but i dont think you did.

I have used RAW for some years now. I found that the "standard" sRGB conversion favours shadow detail and I like it to favour the highlights. I used to ovecome this by underexposing by one stop permenantly. With RAW I can make the choice at home. I have taken to using a DVD burner made by "Apacer". These sexy hard drive things, with or without display are not that robust and you need two for backup on a long trip. In Africa I was shooting 2GB average a day. This went on two sets of DVDs kept in different places.
Cheers, Ray.

I may not have taken "advantage" of RAW. I am not a professional photographer and I took about 10 shots of this one dragonfly but only kept this one. I am still learning all the ends and outs of not shooting in the Auto Mode. I believe though that my WB was still set in auto. I used my camera's manual position on the dial and I was adjusting with each shot the shutter and/or aperture settings. I forgot to try using the exposure compensation. My camera is not a DSLR, just a large point and shoot. The thing I found about the RAW was that it was much easier to work with the colors and adjustments than it has been before in JPEG. Maybe I am wrong in that but it just seemed that way to me.

That's why I am open to any and all tips and pointers.

This is absolutely stunning, Joe, I don't have one negative comment to make regarding this shot. The wings are so detailed, as is the entire image, it almost looks like he just settled down with you to have a chat! I like the technique you decribed of sitting amongst them and just waiting your turn! Really excellent.
