camera for 2004, but it's a generation behind now. Taken a beating too, as the dent there in the bottom of the U/V filter attests. I was so impressed with my buddy Jason's S3 that I went out and bought the next one up, just out this summer, the Canon Powershot S5 IS. Whoa! Ready to go when you hit the on button. Zero shutter lag. 12X telephoto. Great pics, handles the white balance really well. Huge LCD for composing shots. Functions all accessible in one/two-touch design. Image stabilization. Sensuous, solid camera feel -- the Olympus was too small and boxy to feel like a camera. Clearly a lot of skull-sweat went into this camera. [Camera]
Gorillapod from Joby on sale there. The store, Hwa Yang, is located at #315-1, Sec 3 of Dz You (Freedom) Road, directly across from the huge armed services PX, just across the street from the main park downtown.
*By the way, if anyone asks where I am for the next two years, I'll be washing the dishes.
