Thank you, Dennis,

Our office was considering an upgrade to our company camera and your e-mail
was most timely.

Bob Garner, S.E.

As a quick follow-up, I went out today to a job site where the framer gutted the interior of a condo that is under remodel. The framing had changed over the years and there were no decent records to show how load transfers were done. I had this new little camera in my hand and while I would have loved to use it in manual mode, I did not know enough about it yet to play with the features. I simply put it on point and shoot and went at it. I took more than 80 pictures and the battery did not even show that I had used any power. The photo's were 7.1 Mega pixels and the flash was set to auto adjustment. I stuck the camera into some dark places in the attic and it came back with a beautifully balanced picture showing me exactly what I wanted to know. Last night, I took a photo of a mirror in our bedroom that had a reflection of our television which was showing a DVD (Van Helsing) that I was watching. Not only was the mirror picked up beautifully, but I could see the character on the TV and zooming into the photo could see every strand of hair on his head. This is tremendous as now I have more ability to record what I might not have thought about on the site, but was captured in my photo if I blow it up or look closely.

I do recommend the Casio Exilim Pro P-700 and the best price was from (although I suggest you call them rather than use their website to purchase since I had some trouble).


P.S. I took some shots of the rain in the Santa Rosa mountains surrounding the area I live in (La Quinta California) and the low hanging clouds around the mountain peak. This is unusual as this is the worst year for rain than I ever witnessed, but this also means that the California Poppies will be blooming all over the desert in a few weeks. The pictures were tremendous.
