New Camera wake up call

So you bought this new Camera and it isn't taking the pictures you think it should! Maybe it is not the cameras fault! Maybe if you had bought a Nikon D3x for$6000 (body only) you would be having the same issues...Reason is, modern cameras give you lots of adjustments, and you can adjust them to give you the picture you want...This means that YOU are going to have to learn how to adjust this complicated , amazing tool..You have Aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and white balance to blend together, and this varies dramatically, depending on the light source. Light and reflective light and light intensity all are part of the mix..There are good reference books at the bookstore that can help..I had one by Rob Shepard that was helpful..But when you get that fancy new camera, remember, it might be a steep learning curve..Have fun..Rimshot
