Gary, I am going to be at the Rockford Fest...where do I sign up and can I paypal the payment. I am picking my camera up Monday from the factory...luckily for me there is a Canon place in Elk Grove Village...my camera didn't work after dropping and splashing coffee incident but I was able to take it there and they got it fixed in one day. They have offered me an upgrade to either of the following cameras but I don't know anything about them. I can up grade to either a EOS Digital Rebel XT (silver) for $150 or a Power Shot G9 for $125. I would just wonder if my Macro lenses and filters from my Pro1 would fit either of those models. Maybe if I take my filters and attachments to a camera shop I could find out. Either way, I LOVE taking pictures and use my camera daily...I just need some basic info to figure out what I'm doing. I love hummingbirds and dragonflies and besides my reef tank, that's what I take the most pictures of. Does anyone here have either of those camera's or know anything about them. Thank you so much for the info and help....Gary, I need to see a pic of that Acan we traded for "Bugs". who is doing fine and getting VERY fat by the way!!
