From time to time I take out my camera to try different things and if the shot doesn't work out I'm never really sure if it's because I made a mistake or because the lens or the camera just was not capable what I wanted.
Now I can check because I've found a Flickr group with over 5000 photographs taken by people using the same camera I own. That's a great resource. If I search through it I should be able to find examples of what the camera can really do and then set out to learn how to do the same.
A quick search shows there are lots of groups for other cameras and manufacturers, I dont know why I never looked for these before.
