    I have a funky old telescope and hooked the camera to it to snap that one. It was hard as hell to keep still with my rickety tripod.

    Wicked, Mike. What's your macro setup?

    I bought a replacement to my lost G9. I can't stand being without some kinds of half-assed decent camera while I'm on the road. I wish I had the space for the big stuff all the time, but I just don't. So I picked up a G11 from Buydig.com. I managed to get it for about $60 less there than locally, and I didn't have to pay sales tax or shipping.

    It'll be here tomorrow, I think. I hope, really. I have to leave for a week on Sunday, and I'd like to have it when I go.

    Got the G11. The battery is charging as I type this. I am decidedly unimpressed with it's construction. Flimsy, to say the least. The G9 was a freakin' tank. The G11's body is still metal, but it has a hollow feeling to it that really makes it feel almost cheap compared to the G9. I think this is partly due to the fold-out screen (the G9's screen was fixed).

    The one big improvement that the G11 does have over the G9 is exposure lock feature, which was sadly missing from the G9. That will come in handy, for sure. It also has a dial-based exposure/flash compensation (rather than having to do it through menus...though you still can do it that way if you like). Higher ISO sensitivities with lower noise levels over the G9 will be nice as well.

    Oh well. I've still got some playtesting to do once the battery is charged.

    Newbie getting going here w/ my new toy.

    Does anyone know the color temp for Toyota Sports Center?

    How much post do you all do as far as adjusting contrast, saturation, tint exposure ect?

    I would suggest doing a custom white balance on location, shoot RAW, and adjust contrast, tint, etc. in post. You'll get the maximum opportunity to get it right and the most flexibility.

    At Toyota I just put the setting on Flourescent and it is nearly perfect since they switched to 100% flouro lighting a year or so ago. If you can get your color temp close and your exposure right on (by looking at your screen and histogram) then you won't need much correction on the back end.

    Use the "M" manual settings. Shoot RAW at 1600 ISO and a wide open aperture (lowest number). Adjust the shutter speed to the correct exposure.

    The good thing about doing it this way is that once you get into post, every picture will require the exact same adjustments (if any) since the camera settings were the same for the duration of the shoot. If you set at AUTO then every pic is set differently by the camera and will require different adjustments and all look a little different.
