jeffery, i'm with you.  my mind goes distinctly blank when i am handed 
someone's camera and am trying to figure out what the icon of a stick 
figure, a mountain, and a moon in the upper left means.  

then i squeeze the shutter, and nothing happens, and i push harder and
still nothing happens and i turn the camera around to try to figure out
what i am doing wrong, and then the shutter lag kicks out and the flash 
goes off right in my face.  at least with digital i can delete it (if i can
figure out how ("what does format card do?")).
