My birthday gift to myself after not having had a digital camera in 4 years:
12.0 optical zoom
Can shoot quicktime movies
Not too tiny and not too big. I needed a portable alternative to my manual SLR Canon Ae-1 and wanted a lot of features. Furthermore, I chose to postpone getting a smartphone in January since Google made their software announcement. The camera won out and I know I’m going to spend the next night or so reading the manual and playing around with the features.
So for now enjoy some shots I took at Joe’s birthday dinner:
More on the birthday celebrations later…
