Almost six years ago, my husband (then boyfriend) bought me my first digital camera. It was a pretty good one and lasted until this past christmas. Compared to my brand new Nikon Coolpix, I consider that first camera to be a dinasour!t It's funny how technology can change in a matter of only a few years. The Nikon does absolutley everything I want it to do. Major zooming capabilities, an extra large LCD screen makes it easy to see what I'm shooting, ten or more megapixels. It really is a wonderful camera. Not to mention it does all those great things for a great price too! I was expecting to pay an outrageous amount of money to get such a good camera. So not only does it do all I wanted and needed it to, it was totally affordable. Now my husband and I have a baby on the way, and I absolutely cannot wait to get some great shots of our precious little one! I know that this camera will give us quality shot that will last us for a lifetime!
