I just purchased a brand new camera. I had a pretty cheap one that I basically used to death over the past years. It would barely take a shot anymore. I have been saving a dollar here, a few dollars there, whenever I could get a hold of a bit of money, for a very very very long time hoping to have a good camera one day. I finally had enough and decided on a Nikon p100....loving the great clear shots and great features on it!!!
