We recently purchased a refurbished camera from canon.com after our old one faded away. The new one moved us from 8 megapixel images to 20 megapixel. The pictures we take should be clearer. We also went from 4x optical zoom to 40x, so we’ll have “a closer view of faraway subjects.” By today’s standards this is a modest little point and shoot, but it should make a difference in the kinds of pictures we can take indoors, and having a working camera available rather than a camera that is thinking about working will make the experience of capturing our programming faces and fun more enjoyable! Today, we took a few shots just to figure out how the camera works!
