Today we are releasing the new official portrait for President Barack Obama.
It was taken by Pete Souza, the newly-announced official White House photographer.
It is the first time that an official presidential portrait was taken with a digital camera.

The first ever official digital presidential portrait was taken by a Canon EOS 5D Mark II. Surely this will settle the Canon/Nikon conflict.
Addendum: Jason Specland notes that the copyright date is set to 2008, which means Pete Souza probably needs to re-work his processing workflow.
