Hey Spot!When our magnolias bloom in late April I'll post a picture, very different from the Cornwall variety!The camera I use is a Kodak EasyShare M853--has 8.2 megapixels. Cheap camera, easy software as I am somewhat digitally challenged. The pics come out great, tho, I think!:0)
I am impressed by the phenomenal quality you are getting; we have to work very hard to get similar photos (mind you we are out of doors without a tripod). Spot and I lie on the ground hoping to minimise camera shake but tend to get soaked instead.
