(To Jeannie, & anyone interested):
The old camera was a Canon PowerShot SD400. 4ish-years old I dropped left&right a million times, the battery held very little but I liked it. I might use it again for a future quick international trip (it's pretty compact & convenient) Details on that later.
This new macchina fotografica is also a point-&-shoot Canon PowerShot SD990 IS. I'm not a photographer, but LOVE bikes, coffee, colors, typography, people, and to capture them has become my daily visual hobby. It has many new features, like high ISO for quick capture, digital macro and other gadgety goodies. I've enjoyed it very much, so far. Thanks for your interest & enjoying my city treks with it—Cheers!
