Ok so manual controls freak the crap out of me. I get all wiggy with the exposure meter and tried to overcome some of this yesterday. I love this truck down in our binyard. The only crappy part is its mixed in with junk all around in. No clear shot. Had the tripod out and was messing around with the other one. I like the exposure on my dog Jake although obviously I cut off his feet and tail. The camera was on the tripod and I was trying to adjust quickly for pictures. Only post was cropping the truck and adjusting the levels a bit.
