Old Camera and New Camera

I just thought I would do my part to stimulate the economy, so I bought a new camera yesterday. This is the old camera (picture taken with the new camera) that is about 5 years old. It's a Sony Cybershot with 3.1 megapixels and 2X optical zoom.

Here's the new camera (picture taken by old camera). It's another Sony Cybershot, but it has 8.1 megapixels and 5X optical zoom. I went to Circuit City yesterday to take a look at the Canon SD1100 Elph that I was seriously considering buying and this Cybershot was right next to it. The Cybershot is slightly bigger, but after comparing the two, I liked the Cybershot better. I liked that the LCD screen was bigger than the Elph's, I liked the picture the Cybershot took better, and there were a couple of other things that I liked about it that I can't remember now. So, I went home and did a little research on the Cybershot and the reviews on it were as positive as the Elph's, if not more so. So, even though I could have got the Elph for about $30 less, I decided to get the Cybershot. I should have gone back to Circuit City, but I didn't want to drive out there, so I went to Evilmart, which is much closer and, actually, I waited less time to get help at Evilmart than I did at Circuit City earlier in the day. They had one of the "red" cameras left (I think it looks more like a dark pink color; another advantage over the pale pink Elph). So, here that's my new camera! I'm super psyched!
