Can you guess? I'm thrilled!!! I've been wanting a new one... I'm proud, I researched the crap out of this for a good deal. I don't think I'm quite ready for a big fancy SLR yet, but I wanted a good zoom (10X YAY!!) and decent megapixels (8) I love it! It's just what I want a this stage of photo taking... but it has all the little manual settings I can play with. And takes some beautiful shots.
I did happen to notice after going to Best Buy for a bigger memory card... that my model is now obsolete. Boo! Oh well, it's only an additional 2 megapixels for $100 more... who wants the latest and greatest all the time anyways...
My parents asked if we wanted the gun Ave's been wanting or the camera I've been wanting for our birthdays' (since they are a month apart) Ave was gracious enough to suggest my camera.
