I have ordered a new camera for Mother's Day, it will be from my husband. I was wondering if anyone has one of these models, Kodak Z1012 IS. I have an older Kodak 5 megapixel camera that my brother got me for Christmas a few years ago, and it is great, but now that I'm retired, I hope to take more pictures, and probably do more cropping, so for that reason, and because I would like a longer zoom, I am upgrading. Also, I have a grandson (who by the way was born on my birthday, so is my birthday buddy) who is in the house too much, and I thought I would pass along my old camera to him, as he has an interest in photography. By getting a fairly early start (he is 12) maybe he will develop an interest that will get him out more and give him a creative outlet. I am giving it to him with the stipulation that he delves a bit and learns about photography from the ground up, apertures etc. He is home schooled, so my daughter is going to incorporate it into his lesson plans.
