March 11th, 2010 — Orange, Tech commentary
Very VERY excited to be one of the first to get this new orange Canon camera – 14 megapixel – what a massive leap up from 4 megapixel!
It’s so tiny and so lovely and orange. Generally it’s the same operation as our existing camera so not too much to learn and apparently The Mister will take better photos with it because it has an image stabilizer!
I think it has a design flaw though, because it’s so thin and slightly rounded (to fit comfortably in your pocket one assumes) it isn’t very stable standing by itself with the lens extended, which is very important for the self-timer that we use quite a lot!

Not on the NY Times coffee list but have found an excellent espresso bar not too far from where we live, about 6 blocks, called Fika.
Beans are from Sweden and we have to order cappuccinos – excellent temperature and taste, will definitely be going back there and scouting out the other 2 locations. Excellent oat raisin cookies too!
Fika, 407 Park Ave South at 28th Street, New York
P.S. 2013: This became a regular spot when we were living in New York in 2010 and we often visited it or the cafe on West 58th Street (between 5th and Avenue of the Americas) in the years since then.
