    It's a Sony cyber-shot DSC-WX350 with an incredible 20X optical zoom.

    Be fair now. It's about age more than size. I had a Canon EOS back in the days of 35mm film, when the EOS actually stood for "Eye operated system". I've no idea what it means now as I don't think the modern ones use EOS. That camera responded to where my eye was looking in the viewfinder to decide what to focus on. Nowadays cameras such as my angel's have in-built intelligence which enables them to guess for themselves. When the changeover to digital came it made sense for me to buy a Canon digital body so that I could carry on using my existing lenses, so that's how I ended up with that monster.

    I didn't even pay for the original camera and lenses as I bought the complete kit with a long service award from my employers. I just told them what I wanted and they paid the bill for it. So it wasn't a boy's status symbol at all but a sign of how I remained faithful over many decades, an attribute of which my angel is well aware.

    When we were on our holiday cruise on the Rhine this summer I used the Canon's telephoto lens to photograph the many castles high up in the Rhine gorge. No doubt had my angel had her new tiny camera then it would have been ideal for the task with its in-built image stabilisation feature, but my camera certainly looked impressive next to those of the wealthy Americans on board. Just sometimes size is everything, especially when you're acting out a role on holiday for fun.

    OK, now. I will faint from awe when you post the real deals!

    It's very difficult to pick a favorite. But I love the color contrasting here.

    One can but dream, if only i had dared.
