gee david, i dont. but i could probably figure out how to j-peg a couple
of shots.........i love to talk about africa almost as much as i love being there....i have done 2-3 weeks on each trip in one or two countries at a time: kenya, tanzania, zimbabwe, zambia, botswana, namibia and south africa...i get out of town the day after i land some-
where and head for the game parks asap....

africa is a photographer's paradise....you can keep going back to the same site everyday and see different things each time but truly, PATIENCE-NO MATTER HOW UNCOMFORTABLY YOU'VE POSITIONED YOURSELF, IS MAJOR..... the more you observe animal behavior, the better your shots because you learn to anticipate what that lion is going to do in the next second.....

the best time to shoot is in the wonderful golden light before sunset
when everything absolutely shimmers...sunsets are miraculous..and nothing comes close to the african sky---daytime and nighttime...the
air is SO CLEAR you feel as if you can reach up and touch a cloud..or
a star....

do email me thru motley, and let me know how to send some pix.

and thanx for the camera advice...i am concerned about shake
and shutter speed.......not to mention figuring out all the bells and
whistles on these cameras....

yours,
sasha
