Camera update!

I have one!!! YAY!

I got a Canon XTi! I got a GREAT deal!

So, the world remains small... in my search for a camera (read post below) I found out that when I called Camera Corner (our local ma & pa camera store) to see what they had on consignment-well all they had was a camera (Nikon D300) that was so out of my price range... $1300! But what happened is the person that called next, couldn't have been long after me, she bought the D300, and then in my searching online and on ebay-well, having bought the Nikon I passed on (like I had a choice!!) , she was then selling her XTi. Which I just happened to come across! (I saw the "Davenport, IA" in the "where item located" on her auction and thought-"hey, I could save on shipping") ANYWAY, wacko! Every beenon ebay? There are usually about 300+ auctions for the Rebel XTi at any given time... and that I knew of the camera she got which then resulted in her selling the Rebel... OK-I thought it was funny!

I have taken a few shots with my XTi-but I have a LOT to learn!!!

Keep in mind-these are w/o software correction!

I'm in the market for a new camera, how's the Canon? I have found that brand to be the number one recommnded camera among scrapbookers, in Creating Keepsakes magazine, recently. Waiting on tax refund to get here to get one. I'm not as high tech as you. I'm looking for a point and shoot. Still learning on how to take good pictures. So I need a camera that can give me as much help as possible. I'm looking at the Canon Powershot SD870 IS Digital ELPH. I can get one at Staples from what I saw on their web site.

Oh, and one more thing, did you get the treat bag I left for you at the store? I hope you did and I hope you enjoyed the goodies.
