The gods occasionally smile

Well, Canon couldn't find the right part to fix my Powershot SD110, so they asked if I'd like a refurbished SD600 instead. Not being a complete idiot, I said sure. Yesterday I picked it up.

It's got a much larger LCD screen than the SD110 and a 3X zoom rather than the 2X the SD110 has; that's equivalent to 35mm-105mm, which makes it the same as the one my Canon A-1 has. 'Course, it's got 150 pages worth of manual to page through; the A-1 has a 48-pager that I could carry in its bag.

Overall, I'm delighted. The one regret I had after using the SD110 after a while was the lack of zoom length, and that's been resolved at no cost to me. Woohoo!

You seem to be starting a good customer service trend!

The gods occasionally smile.. except that, for some of them, a smile has the same meaning that it has for non-human primates.
