How is it possible that I haven’t bought a camera since Nov 2007? My new camera is as cool as the old and larger one which I use for both video and stills. Dad gets my old and trusty Lumix which he was so excited about he bought a tripod for already. I’m still looking for the user manual. :o)

I purchased this new camera because it has two stabilization methodologies employed by default; hardware and software. I also like some of the other high-tech improvements that makes highlighting what you want in a picture easy. Here is a video I took without a tripod:
The camera is light and charging it is fast and easy using a rechargeable battery that came with the camera. Here are some stills I took today.
In the first picture I’m too close to the subject, don’t adjust any settings and get this marvelous close-up of Macy. In the middle picture I have a backlit subject who won’t stay still but somehow still manage to get a decent picture. The last close up of Amelia, the amazing always moving dawg, again with no dial selection, just point and shoot renders me a crisp photo even though, once again, I’m too close to the subject (both emotionally and distance wise ;o).
Guess what, at around $300 I’d recommend this camera to any of my non-photographically skills family and friends.
