Did you notice that the pictures in my last post were a heck of a lot better than my pictures have been? That's because I have a new camera!
My fabulous sister bought it for me for Christmas. It's just a point-and-shoot, but it's sooooooo nice. 12 megapixels, HD video and this great Intelligent Auto feature. You just press a button on the top and it will select the right faces in the picture and use flash if necessary. And it makes switching from flash to non super easy - I keep flash off in the overall setting and then just hit the little button when I want it. And the adjustment period for the AI is quick, which was great when taking pictures at Emerson's birthday party - girlfriend never sits still!
