Thanks for helping out everyone. Really appreciated your input, helped me make a more infrormed and better decision on my new camera.
As you read on an older post, my old baby camera died after about 4 years of dedicated service so I did some searching and looking around to find a new one to replace it. I looked at a lot of cameras and I did settled with the one I was looking at. The samsung, a phenomenal little machine! I'm off to Disneyland with mom on wednesday so I get to use it right away when we go. Very excited!
Will be posting the first set of pictures shortly!
Thanks again for the help guys.
