As of this moment, our new Canon SD550 and the Canon ELPH accessory kit are on their way from NYC to my doorstep. I opted for the accessory kit because it’s only $50 and contains a $45 battery, a $15 metal strap and a $20 leather case. The only thing left to do is get a larger SD memory card. I have a gift certificate for Fry’s that’s burning a hole in my pocket, so I think I’ll start there. I’ll probably end up picking up a 1G Lexar or SanDisk. We use their CF counterparts here at work and have always been impressed by their performance.

I’m gitty as a schoolgirl. 😛
