For the first time in presidential history, a president's official White House portrait has been shot with a digital camera.
The new White House photographer, Pete Souza, used a Canon 5D Mark II digital camera to shoot President Barack Obama's portrait a week before the inauguration.

Not surprisingly, the first digital camera to shoot a presidential portrait isn't exactly a point-and-shoot model that you'll find at your local discount electronics store. The Mark II is aimed at professional-level photographers and retails for $2,699, offering 21.1 megapixels of resolution. Find out more information about the Mark II at this link.
