    My wife and daughter dragged me out shopping earlier today. I just hate shopping with them, they take all day to buy one or two things and they must visit every single store . So while we were in Target I walked away from them and headed over to the electronics section and started playing with a few of the cameras. The salesperson walked over and asked if I needed help and I stated that I wasn't interested in buying anything today and that I was just killing time while the ladies shopped. I picked up the Nikon L820 and loved the zoom on it and the photos were very crisp and clear. I convinced myself that I needed a new camera to update my Sony camera I bought about 8 years ago so I asked the same salesperson if he had one in stock and he stated that he had 1 left. I made the impulse buy and walked over to the wife who asked what was in my bag and I told her that I bought a camera for our Disney trip in 2 weeks.... She didn't buy it and said "I should have left you home" :)

    I hope the camera takes some good photos or I will never hear the end of it!

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    I think Canon AND Nikon have excellent cameras. I currently have one of each. :D

    Congratulations on your purchase. Would love to see test shots if/when you get a chance.
