I got a new camera!

Today I got a nice surprise, my hubby said that we could (finally) go pick out a new digital camera! I got my last camera 6 years ago and while it was a very good camera in 2002, I'm so happy to have something better now that I have my daughter.

I got a Nikon Coolpix P80. So far I'm really pleased with it. I've played around with the different scene settings- portrait has face recognition which really makes clear photos of faces in pictures- perfect for photos of my little one. I also went outside and played with the macro mode a little bit and I'm pleased with that as well. It was dusk when I was outside and I still got some alright photos of flowers. I was reading in the user's manual that you can adjust the shutter speed if you're taking photos of water fountains and things like that. I can't wait to play around with it some more.

I also like that I can actually get the baby's expressions now before they change or she moves her head. My old camera was soooo sllooooowww. Plus I can use it for etsy. Hopefully I will be just as happy with my table-top studio that I should receive Monday, I'll keep you posted!
