My Powershot A95 arrived!

My new Canon Powershot A95 digital camera arrived today! I've already filled and erased the bundled 32MB CF card three times. I'm pretty satisfied with the results. I wasn't at first, until I realized I was taking pictures in a poorly lit room. (Turning on the lights helped quite a bit.) Still, the pictures are a bit noisier than I'd like, but I suppose that's par for the course for a 5 megapixel consumer camera. At least there aren't any obvious artifacts caused by overzealous noise reduction algorithms.

Anyhow, I took some pictures of my son Joshua with both my old Samsung Digimax 130 and my new Canon. It's certainly not a fair comparison, but I have to justify my purchase somehow.
