I'm so happy! Our new camera came today. After many great suggestions (really just one), we decided to go with a camera that no one recommended. This always makes me a little nervous. I mean a camera is a pretty big purchase and they are so important. Really. I mean, I didn't have a camera for about 2 weeks and I felt like I was missing out on all these cute and fun things that were happening. Things that will never happen again. But I have one now, and I will never be without again... well, at least until this one breaks. By the by, if you want to buy a new camera DO NOT get a Pentax. They are wonderful cameras for the first 18 months to 2 years. Then not so much. Well,ours (and all the reviews I read of people who owned like models) still took great pictures but would not usually hold a battery charge for longer than 1 hour (I'm not kidding, near the end of the life of the camera it wasn't even 15 seconds), but when it did the camera took 5-7 seconds to reload after taking another picture. So frustrating!
Well, without further ado here it is... the new smart (but still easy to use for us dummies - ME!) KODAK EASY SHARE Z812 IS. Sigh... it's my new friend.
