When taking your C-700 (or any digital camera, for that matter) out for all day shoot, like to an airshow, do your turn the camera on when your start shooting and leave it on all day? Do you turn it off if you know you won't be using it for, say, 30 minutes? If it is in "Battery Save" mode, is it more efficient to leave it on all day and let it "sleep", rather than to turn it on and off through out the day?

Re: All Day Shooting
I will leave mine on unless I know I won't be taking a picture for quite a while. Sleep mode does a good job of saving the batteries. The only thing I don't like is, sometimes, not always, but sometimes, it is slow to wake up.
You can half press the shutter once in a while to keep it from going to sleep, but you're batteries will die very quickly. I do that if I know a good shot is coming any minute and I know my camera is ready to go to sleep. Just don't do it too much.

So many people are browsing for the best D40 lens to take baseball picture i will give you some information about this topic i am not a professional photographer
if it's played on a full sized diamond you'll need 300mm
if shooting from on the field/dugout. 200mm isn't long enough to shoot
corner-to-corner. Realize though if it's not sunny at that time of day
(i.e if it's overcast) you'll be shooting at 1600 to get needed shutter
speeds at 5.6
IS is not necessary but USM is. THe 70-300 is the best choice for your needs as long as lighting is good.
Panorama shooting lets you create a panoramic picture, using the OLYMPUS
Master software from the provided CD-ROM. An Olympus xD-Picture Card is required for Panorama shooting. If the card is a Fuji xD card then the panorama feature would be disabled to you.
These instructions are for the IXUS 70, even though the category is PowerShot SD500/IXUS 700.
1. Press the down arrow (bottom of main control button)
2. Press the up or down button until you see the icon for continuous shooting, which looks like three squares overlaid on each other.
3. Shoot your pictures. As long as you keep the shutter button depressed, the camera will continue to shoot until the memory card is full.
To return to single frame shooting, follow steps 1. and 2. but select the single square in step 2.
Here are some tips for taking great pictures with your PDC 700 camera:
* Keep the sun behind you or at your side. Avoid having the sun directly overhead.
* Use the Flash On setting if there is a light behind your subject.
* In low light conditions, use a tripod to avoid camera movement during exposure.
* When possible, take pictures when the temperature is between 13C (55F) and 35C (95F). Temperatures outside this range can affect battery performance.
* Keep the subject within the flash range of 18 in. to 10 ft. (0.45m to 3m.)
* Avoid shooting toward reflective objects, which can result in "hot spots" in your pictures. If you cannot avoid shooting toward reflective objects, use the Flash On setting .
* Periodically clean the lens, the LED area on the front of the camera, and the LCD display on the back of the camera. Use a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not use cleaning solutions or chemically treated tissues.
