Got my new camera
yesterday plus my memory card and my sister-in-law's birthday present.
The camera is very cool. One features hasn't worked out quite as well as I'd hoped (it has an orientation sensor so it can tell if a picture was taken portrait or landscape and records that in the image header information, but all of the applications I tried ignored the header data) but other than that it's great. Everything it does is faster than my old camera. It's got a better zoom lens and the pictures are larger too so there's more room for cropping later. I played around some with doing a little qtvr of my living room but that didn't turn out so well. It also has a remote and it can sound like a monkey.
