OH man...

More technolust... I want the new Sony DSC S85 camera. It sounds even better than the Nikon Coolpix 995, although it only takes Sony's stupid memory sticks and the Coolpix looks way cooler. The Sony has better image quality, though, which is compelling, and longer battery life, which is nice. Oh, and the Coolpix pivots, which is awesome. But the Sony has a better LCD screen. And the Coolpix has more options, but the Sony has better image quality. (I know, I listed that already, but image quality is key, right? Right.)

Sigh. I wish I was rich so I could just get one of those professional digital cameras and not have to worry about any of that. ;)

Update: They're both so new they're impossible to actually buy or do any real pricing on. But to get a S75 costs ~$750 whereas a Nikon 990 costs ~$850 so I bet the S85 will be cheaper than the CP995. And either way, including memory, batteries, etc. you're talking over $1000 US. Ok, so much for that idea. ;)
