Hello everyone. My name is Charlie, a new to here. I purchased Canon 300HS last week which is my 3rd compact digital camera. When I saw some amazing photos taken by Canon 300HS, I realized the power of small digital camera. I don't want to be a professinal photographer as it's too expensive to own DSLR and not realistic to me at this time. But I am eager to be a good digital camera photographer. I dream I can take exciting photos which are the same as some photographers using the same model did.

I am looking forward to learning from everyone here.

1 Could I find some tutorial threads here?
2 What mode do you often use?

Welcome! Don't be afraid to ask someone how they got the shot (if you read the rest of the thread and they haven't tried to explain it) or to clarify something they said that you don't quite understand. Most people here are willing to help (and if they aren't nice, well, that's what the little

There are a bunch of tutorials linked in this sticky in the General Photography Forum. There's also a sticky on recommended books in that forum.

I've had mine for a while now and I must admit that it spends most of it's life in Auto for outdoor snaps. However, as it's the "fun" camera I also like playing about with the Miniature and Color Accent modes. For a recent holiday I bought the Canon underwater case which gave me some great shots of the kids.

I didn't know it had a underwater case...SWEET!!! I am going to order one.

I use p mode most of the time. Don't shoot me forum people but I will recommend kenrockwell.com and I think michaelthemaven.com has a lot of good info on digitial photography. You might even try B and H video to see if they have any tutorials.

Congratulations on your new camera!!! It is definitely a fun little camera. I love mine and use it all the time but I will say you need a hard case if you put it in a back pack or purse, etc bc when I had mine in a soft case in my purse, something would hit it and would turn on and the lens would be sticking out and I def. didn't want anything to damage it so I bought a hard case and no problems.

Yup, there are two - the 10ft one for around $60 and the serious one for 5 times that. Needless to say I bought the cheap one :)

I also have the 300HS, and it's a sweet camera. I usually use the P mode, but sometimes I like playing with the miniature effect and toy camera effect.

When DSLR people talk about modes, they mean Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, or Manual, etc. Aperture, shutter speed, and ISO are the 3 parts of the exposure triangle. The various modes affect how the camera would solve the 3 variables. If you want a point and shoot that would enable you to control these settings, try looking at the S100 or the G series. Good luck!
