Too late. :D

It's brilliant, although it'll take me a long time to get comfortable with every setting. One thing that really impresses is the high-speed shooting capability, although that does...

Good tips there, much apprecaited! I'd already got the shutter speed dialled in from shooting motorsport, but I'll have a look at exposure compensation as well.

No, adjust the aperture not the ISO (although this can be adjusted it's a bit boring). The aperture (the f numbers) makes a big difference to the pictures. :)

The top row is the aperture, i.e. how wide the lens opens to let in some light. Due to horrendously complex optics the wider it's open the more your background gets blurred. This can be nice for...

A better air mattress would be my recommendation, do you need a double, or would a single do?

Another alternative is to get a folding camp bed, they can be quite comfy.
