No this is not a flimsy excuse to look at my pedicure again!I took this shot(the one on the bottom) with the Canon(it has 6 Mp but
has a lens that has 12 times the image stabilization and 6.0-72.0mm)
compared to Sony cyber shot,has 7.2 mp but not an outstanding lens ( see the shot on the top)which is almost not a far comparison but these cameras are both in
the point and shoot family and once I compared these two shots I felt like I had made the right decision to
buy this camera! If you go to www.digital-photography-school.com they have a top twenty list of the best point and shot cameras based on what the the readers themselves bought as well as tips,tutorials ,information on cameras etc... . I picked this Canon from the top twenty list and waited for the best used price on amazon. So what is your favorite brand of camera? Do you use point and shot or Dslr? One other thing I picked this camera because it will let me shot Manually and in Auto mode so this will be a nice transition to owning a Dslr.
