Some time ago, Pjmomrunner started a post about a new camera. I loved what I heard and saw. Then, as frosting on the cake, Stretch gave it high marks. I have pretty much thought about the camera at least twice a day since then. Well, I finally ordered it, and received it on Friday. I have not mastered it's cababilities by a long shot, but already am loving the more powerful zoom. This is a picture from our deck, of the east (far) canyon wall-a distance I could not reach in this detail with my old camera. if we get the snow that is predicted, there should be some interesting pictured to take in the coming weeks.
