I must say - sorry, this is still about the inauguration - I was so frustrated with my camera at this event. The zoom just wasn't enough, nothing was. I decided that I urgently need to upgrade.
I've been using pocket cams for over two years now, and managed quite okay even professionally (as there are some very decent pockies...) BUT I think it's time to move on. More about this later, when I eventually get my act together, ok?
