Copperarabian, you are so good at photography, maybe I should use your tips ;)
They definitely work, and sunlight makes bettas look amazing. Their colors come out so much better and because the light is brighter there will be less if any blurr :D

With the lenses and camera body it is. Some lenses cost more then the camera itself O.O not mine though, I get the best I can for lower prices because I'm can't afford them haha.

You can find some pretty good point and shoots. I recomended the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX9 to my friend and she loves it. It's priced around $119.

She took this at a fish store, it actually does better in low light then my DSLR combined with my current lenses.

I'll ask be asking you that this Christmas of which camera is the best since I REALLY want a better camera. I got an iPad this year, but next year round taxes I'm going to ask for a "pro" camera.

The results are in!

Cool, I can definitely help with that when the time comes :) The nice thing about being a photo major is I get to use lots of different camera ;)

Great! I can tell you've had much experience with several. I can see why you havent changed your Avatar!

I want to get into Marine Photography as a back-up and Marine Biology as a major and when I retire I'll open my own Fish Store. Definitely NEVER giving fish up!

I'm glad you like my avatar :D

That sounds awesome, I would love a underwater camera case but the decent cases are very expensive.

I would like to know what I'm doing with my camera. I fake it. I really do. I love that shot you have above Copperarabian! That takes a good shot. I've had two Sony's. I like them pretty good. They're easy to learn.

I am only ankle deep in the knowledge of F stop and stuff.
I'm sure if I learned more about the technical stuff and the manual settings I'd get better results.

I have a lot of issues with motion blur. Not from me moving the camera but rather the subjects. This makes betta capturing near impossible.

I agree. Though I saw on youtube this one kid made his own underwater camera and it worked VERY well.

I think he use something similar to a PVC pipe with little weight.

Look it up. It is taking a chance, but can be very beneficial,.

Faking photos is hard, if they look good you must be doing something right :D And my friend just loves that camera, you really get more then you paid for it.

I use to have all the F stops and Apertures memroized for school. I forgot all of this >.> I just never use it and I no longer need it for test, I can usually tell what I'm going to need and adjust it a little if I'm wrong anyway lol. Learning how to use all the settings really help. I got my DSLR a few months before I started school and only used automatic since I had no idea how to use a DSLR, once I learned all the technical stuff and did hundreds of critiques I really improved.

As long as I'm using good sunlight I don't have any problems with motion blur. In aquariums it's much harder because the light is usually so bad.
