I was looking through some of the photos that I took a couple years ago with the camera that I still have now... they were sharp, clean, the colors seemed more vivid... but not so much now. Oh, the pictures look ok. They look fine for saving some memories, but they're not like they used to be.
The camera that I'd love to have is completely out of reach for me... for a mere $799... which is more than my mortgage payment, I might add... I could have an Olympus PEN E-P1! Oh, the wonderful photography I could make with such a camera! *sign* But, alas, the money.... Oh, the bills I could pay with such money!
And with a baby on the way.... HA! Not very likely that I'll get such a snazzy snapshot apparatus... nor even anything half that good. I'll probably end up just keeping my old camera that's still working, albeit not as up to par as it was back in the day... but then again... I'm not exactly as spiffy as I used to be either!
