An Historic Photograph


You are looking at an historic photograph.

It's historic not only because it's the official Presidential portrait of soon-to-take-office Barack Obama. It's historic not only because it's the official Presidential portrait of the first African-American to be elected president of the United States.

More importantly (I think), it's historic because it's the first official Presidential portrait to be shot digitally.

Newly-hired White House Photographer Pete Souza took the shot with his Canon 5D Mark II. Us loyal Nikon users would have preferred he'd used a Nikon to take the portrait, but you can't win them all.
