New and Improved!

After using our camera for over 4 years and taking 10's of thousands of pictures, it has started to make a strange noise when we turn it on. We are pretty sure that it is the lens mechanism that is going bad. Since we enjoyed this Canon camera so much and loved the pictures that it has taken, it wasn't hard to decide on a replacement. We aren't sure how long the old camera will last, but didn't want it to quit working while we were on vacation or at an important event.

We took the new camera out on a hike in the woods yesterday. We really like having the 20x optical zoom. It is equivalent to a 560mm on a SLR without the added weight. We took quite a few pictures while we were out yesterday and the camera worked great. Check back soon for pictures of our hike.

I'm hoping my little Kodak digital keeps on truckin', as it is not likely we could get a replacement any time soon!
Looking forward to some awesome pics!
