Yep, It's true, I bit the bullet and bought a new camera. I didn't want to spend a lot of money, and I felt like 5 mega pixels were more than enough, however, you can't get new cameras with less than 7 mega pixels, and they are unfortunately not cheep.
So, I went to Costco and was set on buying another Canon. They are reliable, wonderful, clear, and great little cameras. Well I was swooned by another, a Panasonic. This little camera was black, with a metal case, and a 10x zoom! That is a HUGE zoom for a little point an shoot. So I bought it, and I am so happy! The camera is wonderful, now I realize how much I needed to upgrade.
So, future photos you see here will be from my new camera, and here is one of the practice photos I took last night of my cute hubby and a close-up of a beautiful rose:
