Good Deal or Shafted?

So I was really tired or my old camera that didn't get the lighting right on most of the pictures I took, so I decided to put up the cash for a decent camera.

Link to camera:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....2055383 23188
$190 After tax and whatnot.

My favorite picture I've done so far:




Not too amazing but in comparison, pretty good, especially for day 1

So, in your opinion, did I get a good deal or not?

I think he's asking us to tell him whether or not the camera he just bought was a good deal based on the photo he provided

I tried it out. Meh, but that's not why I bought it. It definitely beats the bejesus out of my out camera.

Full and uncompressed HD, in my Kodak Easy Share camera?!

It's an aspect ratio thing. The camera records in 16x9, but not 24p/1080i/anything. It probably records 480i at best?

The camera itself says "1280x720 (HD 720p), it only gets about 17 minutes per gigabyte at this setting.
