Hi Mark: Well I discussed my quandry with the other half and to my surprise she said she would buy the Chevron for me as an early Christmas present as long as I showed her how to use it. Boy I never saw this coming.Anytime I mentioned cameras and photography to her, her eyes would glaze over and she would say things like " Thats nice" or "Thats not a d****l camera is it?"

She confessed that she always was fascinated by photography but didn't know how to ask for help in understanding it.Plus I have to take her out on her birthday to a very fancy and expensive dinner. I think it would be the right thing to do after all.
