Sharpened only, full-size. :-)

Maybe I can finally get a Blue Ribbon with this baby!

Oh no, I don't think it records EXIF data. :-(

I was going to enter a challenge with it, but now I can't. :-(

just found it on canadian tires webpage for $39. Must have been on sale when your wife bought it.

Doesnt sound too promising as a camera in some reviews:

For the americans: You may need to enter a Canadian postal code in order to view the page. ;)

Yes, it's on sale, and my wife said it was looking very popular and she didn't think stock would hold out long. She bought three, one for her, me, and her brother.

It's best that no Americans look at the Canadian Tire page. Their dollar is so weak that they probably couldn't afford it anyhow. ;-)

Levels and put two images into one since they're so small. :-)

I just showed my wife your wonderful posting as I sat here and marvelled at the march of technology, admired the cost reduction for complex systems, the global disbursement of mass innovation, and the stunning value for the dollar... Life is good.

She then asked me why I was such an "idiot"? I said, huh? Why am I an idiot honey? [Been married long enough to know that I actually am an idiot - surrendered to the concept about 10 years ago.] She responded that I wasted over $8000 on the D3 and the D300 when I could have purchased this key-chain camera for just $10?

She continued by pointing out that I could have purchased 800 of these key-chain cameras for the same funds and had a new camera every day for well over two years. Which she assume would keep my spending lust in check for a little while by fulfilling my need for a constant stream of new stuff.

As she left the room, she mumbled something about my attraction to wastefully spending money was similar to the unyielding gravitation that a moth has to the moon...

How can you argue with that logic?

I just smiled, as I have my new toys anyway. However, due to your cursed post, I now need to rush out and find the nearest Canadian Tire store fast! I..must..have..a..key-chain...camera.. Can't fight the urge.

lol

Schweet! How much are you selling your 40D for, then? I've got $100 burning a hole in my pocket. You know, that's like $800 US.

Hmmm, if I sold you my 40D for $100, I could buy like ten of these keychain babies! :-)
