It's technical and I'm afraid of it

Sky gave me an early Birthday gift. I have wanted a better camera for about 2 years now, I have seriously outgrown my old point-and-shoot. Soo, I told Sky to check out PW's suggestions-and to please, please not get me the latest/greatest (he loves new tech, so that is exactly what he would want to do). He got me the arrived a few days ago, and I finally used it today. I admit I am intimidated by it, I finally cracked open the owner's manual to try and figure out how to turn off the flash. It took us 10 minutes to figure it out.

I am so excited to have it, but oh my, the learning curve is going to be huge!

He's so good to me!
