My wife called me just a short time ago to let me know that my new camera arrived today! :bannana:

I couldn't help myself and went a bit above what I had really wanted to spend, but the new model was so few dollars above the model that it is replacing, I could justify the difference.

The camera is a Canon PowerShot A2100IS.

I splurged a little and got an 8 GB SD card to go with it. I felt that I really didn't need that large a card but again, the price difference between a 2 GB and an 8 GB was so small. I figured why should I even bother with the smaller one?

I will play with it and take a few pics and let you all know my thoughts on it. If anyone else has this camera and has any little tricks, I'm all ears.

I also have a powershot although not as expensive as the one you bought. It takes excellent pictures. If you have the Ultra SD card it will take excellent moving pictures.

I have a powershot A2000IS, I don't really know what the differances are except yours is 100 bigger:trink40:

It's very easy to use once you start messing with it. If you have any questions at all feel free to ask.

I do have a couple tips,

Start out on auto mode it makes it really east to get a feel for the camera.

Kids & Pets mode is very good for taking pictures of moving objects.

Here is a pic of mine taken with my camera.



It also takes nice video too.:thThumbsU

Thanks for the tips. I got the camera in on Thursday of this past week. So far, it is great.

I started out playing around in Auto mode as suggested. Great pics don't get an easier than Auto mode. I read the manual and have started to experiment a bit in the other modes. They aren't as easy as Auto, but they are not hard at all to get the hang of.

There may be a few other differnces between the 2000 and the 2100 but the one that sticks in my mind is the resolution. The 2000, correct me if I'm wrong, is 10 MP and the 2100 is 12.1 MP.

I normally do not buy anything that has just come out, but I got a really good price with Amazon trying to drum up sales, so I jumped on it. I got the camera with a Kingston 8 GB memory card for $220 delivered. I figured for no more price difference between the new model and the "old" model, I would go ahead and get the new one.

Thanks for the comments and tips. I really appreciate it.
