Slghtly dodgy connection with the quote, but hey - its my blog!
Serena and I have just shelled out on a new digital camera. Our old Nikon has lasted us nearly 5 years, which is an age as far as technology goes (the only thing older that we still use regularly is our Sony DVD player, which was state of the art when we bought it and still cuts the mustard now. That is waiting for the HD-DVD/Blu-ray market to stabilise! ).
Our new camera is the Canon Digital IXUS 800 IS (known as the PowerShot SD700 IS in the US). Its pretty new on the market and has been winning lots of awards and getting really good reviews.
We coupled this with a high speed 2 GB SD card and a spare battery (alway a must with these things), totalling a spend of nearly £300. Hopefully it will last us another 5 years!
