Question about Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera
If you bought your camera at a local camera store, the staff there will be more than happy to give you a quick run through. The store at which I purchase my camera equipment even gives you coupon for a free class when you purchase a new camera. Check with your local camera store (a "real" camera store, not like WalMart or Best Buy, nothing against hem, they just cater to a different audience) if they have a basic digital camera seminar you can take. You can also check with your local community education department of your school district, they often have basic photography and digital camera courses available. They would tend to be a bit more generic, but worthwhile nonetheless.
Another avenue is asking around if there is a photography club in your area, if so, it is likely someone has the same or similar model as yours and would be willing to spend some time to get you up to speed.
It sounds like you may have gotten a bit more camera than you need, based on your statements. This model does have several "scene" modes, one of which is "action" or "sports" - you could probably do very well by setting it at this mode and let the camera do the exposure calculations and you make the pictures.
There are a lot of neat features on the camera, try not to get overwhelmed. There is truth to the saying that 90% of the people only use about 10% of a devices features.
