But I have asked for a new digi cam for christmas...
Hey, I have one of those! Actually, my husband and I each have one, but our girls are using them now. It's a great camera! Love the pics! One of the advantages of it only being 2.1 MP is that you don't get digital noise in the images - always sharp and clear.
I upgraded first to an Olympus SP-350. I liked it a lot, but being 8 MP, I had to deal with a lot of noise. Once I got that figured out, it wasn't too bad. My husband is using it now.
Now I have a Canon 350D. Love it! I'm building a photography business and I'm sure soon, I'll be looking at new camera bodies. But this one does the job and isn't too big or heavy like the more advanced 'professional' digital SLR camera bodies. Considering all my aches and pains, that's a big advantage for me.
