Ive had this camera for a few days now and have taken over 600 photos so far (the count is 433 but I took quite a few to test it out before restarting the count) but today I finally feel like this camera is mine. I found that the camera case I have (Targus, same as my laptop bag) fits in the side pocket of my backpack. I have taken this camera everywhere, even if I am not planning on taking pictures. I am now taking it to class, just in case. Is it odd that after getting something and spending a few days it FINALLY feels like its yours? That you can do anything you like with it.
