I'm going on a once-in-a-lifetime trip so I had to get a new camera. The only digital camera I've dealt with is a cheapo version that I used when posting pictures on eBay. My mom figured we would just buy disposable cameras that included film developing. I realized that wouldn't cut it because I want to be able to share my pictures digitally. I broke down and bought a Casio EXILIM EX-S5 on sale at NewEgg. It had really good reviews (including battery life) and is point and shoot (I'm not camera literate). Now I have to figure out how to use this contraption in the next five weeks. Oh, I also got an 8GB flash card for it so I can take lots and lots of pictures.
