My fancy DSLR (Nikon D80) is out of service. My 18-55 lens is broken (I think...), so I have taken all of these photos with my Canon SD780 IS. It can be fussy at times about focusing on close objects (even in macro mode), but once you get the feel for it, it takes pretty decent pictures. That picture of the poppy is straight from the camera. I can't wait to get a new lens for my D80, hopefully (fingers crossed) the 18-200 lens that I have been coveting for a couple years now.
