Thank you to everyone who answered my camera post awhile back. I finally got my new camera, a Canon PowerShot SD1100IS 8MP over the weekend (thanks, Mom!):
So far I'm totally flummoxed by it. Don't get me wrong, I like it and I know once I get used to it I'll be thrilled but right now it's about half the size of my old camera (a 2004 Sony Cybershot) and is so lightweight I'm afraid I'm going to drop it. I'm not used to setting up shots, the macro setting keeps turning off, and the memory card it came with only holds about 10 photos (I've ordered a 16GB card that should be here by the end of the week).
Now that I have a new camera I really, really need to either invest in or build myself a lightbox. I'm so tired of washed out, yellowish photos. Stupid winter and the sun setting at 5pm. Bring back natural light!
