Tariq receives the gift from NJ Mentor - Manalapan RTC!

Thank you for granting my wish. I really appreciate that you got me a camera. I will use it alot; I used it for the first time today and it takes great pictures. I am intrigued about all the features this camera has and the opportunity to be creative as I learn to use it. I am reading the manual to learn about all the features and experimenting with the features and effects. I'm really excited to learn and use this camera.
