New Camera

My wife has been wanting a small point-and-shoot camera to carry around in her purse that would be easier to use and lighter than our Pentax DSLR, so since her birthday is coming up we did some research and found a good deal on a Nikon Coolpix S210.

It is smaller than a pack of playing cards, very light, very easy to use, and takes pretty good photos. Here you can see it in the palm of my hand, and I don't have big hands

One last shot next to my cell phone for comparison:

And just for fun so it doesn't feel left out, the star of my blog on most - and all previous - occassions, our Pentax ist*DL... it has been a good little entry level DSLR but I long for the day when it will be replaced by a Canon D40. :)

I hope she enjoys her new camera. I've heard the Nikons are really good cameras.
