I picked it up the other day, and got it set up last night for a trial run. I am not sure of the settings yet, and it is difficult to aim; there's no viewfinder, and getting it closed down and locked always jiggles it a bit. I just set it on the ground for the first test.
It worked, the first night! Sort of.

Baby steps, baby steps. I've got it on a tripod now; maybe the next photos will actually get the whole animal.
Once again, a reminder: Rock Flipping Day is next Sunday, a week from today, September 9th. Instructions, history, etc.
Last year, several people wrote later, to say that they had intended to join in, but forgot until it was too late. So this year, I'm harping on the date. You can help by passing the word along. Thanks!
