My Sony handheld digital camera was inexplicably drowned in a tub of beer at the office Halloween party. I was devastated. That camera was over ten years old, and we paid something like a small mortgage for it back then - when the small digital cameras were first becoming cool.
We went through alot, me and that camera. And for Sony to die in a tub of beer - it was somehow fitting.
After old Sony was drowned, I waited and waited to buy another.
I still had my big Nikon D40 - the thing I use for "serious" shots - but that didn't work for on the go and parties. I needed that small, compact camera. I don't know why I was hesitating, or why I was confused with which camera to buy. Really, the choice was a no-brainer.
I bought another Sony Cyber-shot. And I am thrilled beyond words. I love love love it. And the cost was not a small mortgage, but a little over $100 - perfect. And with 14.1 megapixels and a 4x zoom, me and Sony are back in business again. Did I mention it shoots video too? Not too shabby. More like: oooh, la la.
