Keep smiling, keep shining

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That's what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I'll be on your side forever more
That's what friends are for

It's time for godpa to move on to a new job. He had been contemplating for some time and I was among the first to know besides his friends.

Meanwhile, he was also busy looking for a new handy pocket camera for travels. He's getting a bit tired of lugging around a big DSLR at this age. It came down to the Panasonic LX3 and the Canon Powershot S90. Fortunately he waited a while and discovered Panasonic LX5 (not shipped yet) and the Canon S95 were launched. He made a wise choice and got the beautiful sleek black S95. A powerful compact that has features comparable to his DSLR.
Godpa is seldom keen with fancy features on consumer cameras but I guess technology is really getting useful these days. Look at the shot he took using the smile detection technology. It works really well for taking memorable moments.
The other neat thing is the camera's low light capabilities. Godpa took a test shot of Singapore's night scene and it looks swell without using a tripod and any post-processing touch up. Hopefully I can be featured more often in future. Yay!
