Try shooting this camera, you may be surprised. Lucky to have a mum that really thinks about what to buy you. I would keep the camera and pass it on, maybe a future generation could sell without offending anyone. I know what will happen to all my stuff when I pass on!
My sister recently phoned to say that she had picked up a Leica for $5 at a local charity shop and would I like it....well I was quivering with anticipation! Turned out to be a C2, a Chinese made P&S, oh well, at least it is a Leica....gift gratefully accepted!
