Santa Claus was good to me and brought the camera I asked for. I was wanting a camera to take indoor pictures of the kittens using just natural light. They move so swiftly, it is very difficult to get a good shot of them except when they are sleeping. Santa brought a Panasonic LX3, which has the option of using either manual or automatic settings. I love it. I am getting some great pictures already - even outdoor pictures of the house with the Christmas lights on.
