29 month LIDversary...

Yup, this past Thursday marks 29 months of waiting, hoping and praying.

I think that just about speaks for itself...not much else to say about that.

Well, after years of faithful service our old 3 megapixel Canon Powershot camera has bitten the dust. Joe and I have finally decided on a replacement and went out in search of one today. After we came up dry at several electronics stores, we ended up ordering it at a camera store and having it shipped. We are getting the Canon TX1...it's a hybrid digital camera and camcorder in one. It's 7.1 megapixel with a 10x optical zoom and image stabilization, which should greatly reduce the number of blurry photos.

Once we get it and have a chance to check it out, I'll let you all know how we like it. For those of you still looking for a new camera and camcorder for the China trip, I'll post sample photos and video. By the way, the TX1 is $499, which is basically the same price as a standard point and shoot digital camera and a standard definition camcorder combined.

You'll have to let me know how you like the camera. We are looking to get a new one and I need a camcorder too.

Happy LID Anniversary....another month passing by. I hope your turn is soon - maybe October?

DH just bought a Flip for our trip. Works pretty darn good and is very small (our post on July 9th).

Aunt Donna,
I don't know if you knew this, but that's the camera my dad has. It's a really cool camera and I use it all the time. It takes good pictures and when you turn it off and put the screen down, it's tiny and it fits in your pocket. It'll be great for your trip to China.

P.S. Something really cool about it is that when you're taking a picture of people, it can sense each face, so it puts a little green box around each one! It doesn't show up in the picture, though. Just thought you'd like to know that.
