Kodak EasyShare CX7000 (God I need a better camera)

Hosted by TotalUpload.com!

No full size because Total Upload won't host files that big, but I guess if anyone even cares to have a full sized one they can contact me at j.barwick at the first major public email service to offer 2+ gigabytes of email storage for free dot com.
