1234 - I need a small digital camera.

The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel is a historic place. Built in 1927, it's been home to the Oscar presentations and the This Is Your Life TV series. It's a nice place to stay. This time, I'm in a nicer room than I was the last couple of times I was here.

The design of the rooms is a bit discordant, though: the fixtures and furniture are appropriate for the 1927 feel they want to project, but the room itself is much more modern, and it clashes a bit.

I want to take some pictures to show bronxelf_ag001. Unfortunately, my camera is back in Fairmont; I don't usually take it on trips. It's a great camera, and I like it quite a lot - but its size makes traveling with it inconvenient.

This illustrates an old photographer's adage: The best camera made isn't worth a damn if you don't have it with you. I need to get something small and pocketable, yet good enough that working with it won't be an irritant. Maybe I can accomplish that today or tomorrow, while I'd otherwise be sitting around doing nothing.

...reviewers seem very impressed with the Canon PowerShot S[45][0-9][0-9].

Well, I went to Best Buy and looked at the currently available stuff - and went with the PowerShot S410. It's the smallest camera around with an optical viewfinder that takes standard memory cards. (The Sony MemorySticks do not count.) I'm waiting on the battery to charge now.

I hope you'll let us know how it works out. Billie is interested in a small camera.
