The times they are a changing

The office of the President-elect released Barack Obama’s official presidential portrait Wednesday morning and the photo makes history as the first presidential portrait shot with a digital camera. Not just any old point-and-shoot digi, photographer Pete Souza used Canon’s fancy new EOS 5D Mark II.

Interestingly, Obama didn’t flash his beaming, trademark smile for the shot and the last prez to opt for a toothless smile was Nixon.
