So in the meantime hubby scored a deal:
Yes, it does look like my old camera, this is the DMC FH25, a newer model with improved everything and a couple more scene modes, such as pinhole:
I've been having fun with the pinhole mode, gives the effect of using a pinhole camera (which I liked making and playing with as a kid in science class).
The food mode is even better:
And it is 16.1 megapixels instead of the 14.1 megapixels of my old camera so I can print larger pictures with no loss of quality.
Can't wait until I get a nice day to go out and do more outside pics with it.
Speaking of pics, I have been getting lots of compliments on my photos showing at the Wellness Center, so I am happy :D
