My new toy has arrived!!

A little background...

With our tax return, we decided to have extensive dental work done for Kevin. He's needed this for a long long time and I'm so happy it's going to be done. At the very least maybe he'll have a better attitude with the lesser pain!

The other thing we did is to set aside the money to put two tires on the car, order some parts for the Honda and .....
I made an executive decision to get a new baby that will ultimately benefit the family (that's my story and I'm sticking to it...). I bought a new camera. I found an amazing deal on it, it's a brand new release of this camera. I fell in love with a sister model that Michelle's dad bought her for her birthday. The photo quality was amazing and who would have expected any less from Canon. When I saw this new release and I saw that I could get it for $80 less than retail at another on line location I jumped at the chance to buy.

I bought the new Canon Powershot A580 and got it for $139!! It was an amazing deal. 8.0 MegaPixels, 4x zoom, lots of interesting options and MAN I love the quality of this camera. Ive been more and more disatisfied with the photos that were coming from my other camera. It's a GREAT camera for a point and shoot and it was a great deal at $75! The quality for that price is absolutely phenomenal. The only problem I have is that I like to take close up shots and the quality for a close up is not good. It's very grainy and can't be 'fixed' using PSE or PSP or any other program I've got. I really needed something different. Top that with my shakiness, that is only getting worse with the degeneration of my muscles, and the image stabilization and face finder on this camera is just what Dr. Lissa ordered!

This baby is fantastic and I'm so glad she's mine!

Here's a shot I took just playing around with it night before last. Look at those tiny little freckles under his eyes! And those dimples! Is he not totally adorable? (I know, I'm partial but even the hardest of toughies could look at him and love that face! LOL) (click on it to get the full effect!)

I'm not sure it has to do with your camera, but that is a great pic. Enjoy your new baby.
