    hey all. i got my lens for my elan 7 this morning at 8, and shot 3 rolls of kodak max by 10 oclock. i am thoroughly obsessed with photography at this point. what i am wondering is, how can I take a water drop picture? what would be the best way to do it? should i leave the shutter open, or what.........any help appreciated!

    Burst mode takes 3 (or more) shots at the press of the button. My camera has (for example) an icon that looks like 3 sheets of paper overlapping, which is the burst mode. Might be the same on yours.

    lemans23 - You're going to try this with Film? I think that might be a waste of a lot of rolls.

    if your doing this w/ a digital rebel can you use the lens that it comes w/ or do you need to get another lens to do a shot like that?

    is that lens any good? the reason i ask is because i was looking into getting one and i didnt know if i have to spend the extra $$ to get the lense or if it came w/ a good one already. It seems like the camera and the equipment it comes w. are good all you need to do is mess w/ the setting and have a pretty good eye for good shots.

    These other guys should have read your original post before they answered. I wouldn't recommend trying these things out unless you were using digi cams.

    thought this shot was neat. no drops caught, rather just the ripples.
