I've added two articles into this section. Mostly what everyone probably already knows but they are up there for newbies as well.

I've covered Macro Mode, Auto-Timer & Tripod. :)
I've covered Catalogue shots with your figures :D

I'll hopefully have some more articles up either by myself or when and as i come across them in the How-To continous search that i am doing. :)
