omg, omg, OMG!!!

Hubby came home from work today with a big smile and a present bag for me.  He told me that he appreciated all the work I've put into helping him start his company and trying to teach him how to use his new computer.  He's been spending a lot of money on things for his company and he knows that I feel left out.  Guess what was in the bag???...




Have you guessed yet???...




Not yet?...




A NEW CAMERA!!!!!!
Here's my new camera vs my old camera.  My new camera is still a point and shoot.  It's a Super Zoom camera, the Canon SX20 IS.  I didn't want a DSLR for reasons I state here.  My old camera is a 6-8 year old (I can't remember exactly) Canon A80.  When I first bought my old camera, it was one of the best in it's class.  Obviously after so long, it is quite outdated.

New vs Old...
The picture on the left was taken with my new camera, the one on the right with my old camera.  Notice the clarity in my new camera!  No matter how many shots I took with my old camera, I couldn't get the clarity of my new camera! (click on the pictures to enlarge them)
The picture on the left was 1/2 the optical zoom of my new camera, the one on the right is full optical zoom of my old camera!  Again, look at the clarity!
The picture on the left is full optical zoom on my new camera, the one on the right is full digital zoom on my old camera.  To see the difference between optical and digital zoom click here.

Unfortunately, that's about all the playing I got to do.  I had a bunch of stuff to do this evening.  I'm only mad at my Hubby for one reason:
He brough home my new camera on a night that I had stuff to do and on a weekend that I work 12 hour shifts Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  I don't get to play with my new camera!!

Nice camera. But I'm confused. Do you mean that the photos with your new camera are really the photos on the left?
