i sold my old one because i wanted a new one, but that was back in september. my mom told me she wouldn't give me my money for a new one unless i did my college applications (which i've been dreading), but then my guidance counselor gave me a deadline, which is 4/15. so, that means...

NEW DIGITAL CAMERA!!!

it's 5.1 MP, which means i could print out huge pics without it looking all distorted. i also love it because it's SUPER small, which is another reason why i sold my old digi cam (fuijifilm finepix a310). it was just released this year.

it retails for about $280+, plus tax, but i found it for $250, with shipping and tax included

i'm so excited! does anyone have this cam?

EDIT: i forgot to add it has all these different shooting modes to help take much better pics and one of them are close-ups, so i might just participate in FOTDs without feeling so self-conscious

AWESOME Jen!!! Congrats! Now we get FOTD pics!!! LOL

I don't know anyone with that camera in particular, but Nikon makes good cams - and they use an all glass lens, which makes for great pics no matter what the MP..... (a 3.0 MP all glass is still better than a 5.0MP one that is not all glass - did my homework when shopping~! lol) So I think you'll be more than happy with the pics of a 5.0MP all glass camera... So happy for you!!! enjoy it when you get it!

I have a Canon Powershot (all glass lens like Nikon) (up to 11x total zoom - both optical & digital)takes great pics but there are Sooooo many features & settings it can get tricky!

Takes movies too...

Absolute BEST feature is the swivel screen! LOL (Great for checking out your FOTD positioning!)

Janelle I love your digicam

I have a Canon Powershot 5 megapixel. I love mine and I like recording short movies too. It takes great and very clear pictures. I can't live without mine

I haven't touched my regular Canon Rebel since I bought the digital Canon....

Cos nothing else consumer matches the zoom on my Olympus!). The pics came out amazing, and the lighting and stuff was so wow!

I'm toying with the idea of taking up photography professionally, and combining it with my MU!! x

yeah, nikons are VERY good cameras. you should definitely invest in one!
i can't wait to see the pics from the shoot!
