Hey, so which camera did you just get? Was it the Canon S900 that Wired raved about?
Didn't go for the S90 (?), though I did look at it. It occurred to me that better ebay deals were available for models a year or two old – so I ended up with a Canon Powershot G9. It's not as compact as the S90, but it's loaded with control options, and it only ran me $305 with shipping.
