Just a wee bit of paying attention would have shown me the difference. In my hurry, I say a satchel and grabbed it. The weight was not really too different.

Sorry Paula, but I am not really qualified for the help you really need.

'bout the photos though, I think the 50 was fine, but would have chosen a slightly smaller aperture to give you a broader depth of field. I see you were at F1:4. Something to try next time.

What? You don't have a webcam for your laptop? You could have used that, assuming your phone's lacking one.

I'm ignorant and haven't figured out how to work it right or something.

Unless you've turned it off via the camera's or flash's CF. I can't recall what camera you have, but, for instance, on the 7D it's CF-III-11; on the 50D it's III-5. By default it's on, but it can be turned off for just the on-board flash, for all flash units, or only for flash which doesn't have an IR-assist beam.

Guess it was almost dead center... the raccoon that is.
May have been working but just focused on the nearer bush, which looks sharp.

It does have a built in webcam. That would have made for a good video, me running around with a laptop trying to get photos.
I too often forget about my phone. Others got photos anyway.

LMAO @ Neils suggestion of The NASA breeding program

Great shots, Crissa, if I did not already say.

Bucky, I love the shot of Aiden in the window!

Nice ducks, butterflies, and coons being shredded. Poor guy was just minding his little bandit business

Pea, try shooting in manual with the flash instead of Tv. If it's real dark pick something like ISO 200 1/80 f/4.5. Use the focus assist setting or a flashlight to focus. They will look like flash pictures with shadows and the area outside the flash will be black but you should get your shot.
