A620 downside

March 23, 2006

It eats batteries.  EATS them!  I’ve got four new 2300 mAh AAs powering this thing, and I swear I’ve had to recharge them twice now and haven’t even taken 200 pictures!  That can’t be right.  I just ordered some fancy 2700 mAh bad boys from Thomas Distributing today.  We’ll see how those do.

At least the A620 takes some really nice pictures.

The new Canons are here! Cool.

At first glance, I’m digging the A700 and the SD700. Oh, oh, oh!  And the S3 IS.  So sweet….

I leave for my vacation on March 10. What do you suppose the odds are of getting one of these in hand before then?  The darn S3 won’t be available until May.  Bah.

Easy-to-view 3.0-inch oversized LCD monitor

Oversized, eh?  Really.

I wonder what kind of battery life this thing gets.  The idea of a touchscreen on a digicam is a neat one, though.  I can only surmise how durable it’d be in real-life situations.

I have to decide on a new camera, and soon.
