I just could not help myself this time. I bought a new digital camera. At first I had another compact camera in mind with 8 mp and a bit better lence than the camera I have used up until now. As you can see I came home with a Canon EOS 400D instead. If everything I have been told is correst this camera is going to be a dream to use. I have an old Pentax with this type of lense but it used film (not digital). Now is the time to take some really good pictures.
