I'm one of those people that get attached to my "stuff" (you can imagine I'm a pack rat too, but we are not going there today). It takes me a great deal of effort to replace my gadgets, usually only when they quit on me.
My first digital camera was a Canon A300, bought almost five years ago when I celebrated my first anniversary at BEA Systems. It's been acting funny lately, and I'm getting rather tired of having to take pictures in small resolution in order to fit more than 10 pictures before the memory card is filled up. The 1"x1" LCD is taxing on my eyes.
Here is my new toy, my forth Canon (yeah, solid brand royalty there).
Canon PowerShot SD750, 7.1 mega pixel, 3X optical zoom. 3" LCD. One piece titanium body, practically indestructible. Long lasting rechargeable lithium battery with a full day on power. The total size is less than half of A300.
I added a pack of two 2GB memory cards (total 4GB), enough for over 4,000 high res pictures or close to an hour of video.
Costco is selling SD750 at $169, and 4GB memory cards $40, but Amazon is offering the camera with 2GB card at $180, free shipping, that's a great catch.
The very last picture from the old Canon A300.
