I was in the garage just having taken some pictures. My digital camera was in the cloth case that Mary had made for me when it slipped from my hand and fell to the hard cement floor. I thought to myself, what a disaster because the camera is not that old. To have broken it so soon by dropping it would be a tragedy. I decided to test the camera immediately. I turned the camera on and pointed it at the fan to get a test picture. The fan was on “high” speed. I was surprised that the motion of the fan had been “frozen” by the camera. I couldn’t believe my eyes as I viewed the picture. Thank goodness the camera is working just fine. I am not sure whether or not the flash had fired when I took the picture. If it did then that might explain the stroboscopic effect with the fan. I know that there are times that I have problems with motion with the camera which is why I usually shoot two pictures of everything as a picture insurance. I am really happy with my new camera and use it on a daily basis. Have a nice day. Lew

Good, I wish Glendon would use her camera on a daily basis. I am glad you camera is still in good shape. Try taking a picture when you are a passanger in the car and are moving. See how it turns out.
