Olympus Stylus 850 SW

My shower head, taken from inside of the cone of spray. One of the first photos from my new Olympus Stylus 850 SW, it was taken in the shower after a bike ride.

Here’s one of the first photos out of my new Olympus Stylus 850 SW which was purchased so that I’d have a decent pocket-sized ruggedized point and shoot camera. It is the business end of my shower head, taken from within the cone spraying water, while taking a shower after today’s bike ride.

I’ve been wanting something like this for when out on my bike, traveling in the expectantly rainy UK, and other random places where I don’t want to bring or risk my DSLR. (Here are a bunch of photos of the Olympus Stylus 850 SW and the SanDisk 8GB microSDHC which make up this camera setup. Thus far it all seems to work well together and holds 1992 of the highest quality photos the camera can take.)

Today was a mostly-day-off from work, in exchange for some rather frustrating work this weekend. While leaving my parents house at 10:30pm on Saturday I was called into an issue which I worked on until 7:30am on Sunday. This was not fun and pretty much ruined my Saturday evening and Sunday, so I needed another day to do stuff. Today worked out well, though, as I ended up…

…buying what I believe to be an undervalued stock.
…getting installed. (More on this later.)
…receiving my Stella 180-N head light, which I may return as a better deal may have come along.
…receiving and photographing my new Olympus Stylus 850 SW and the SanDisk 8GB microSDHC card and taking the aforementioned photo in the shower.
…going for a nice evening / night time bike ride at Stony Creek with the MMBA.
…using a bike headlight for the first time, although it was borrowed (thanks, Mike!) as I don’t want to use the one I received.

So, all in all it’s been a good day, even with attending a few conference calls here and there. Now I just need to sort out what’s going on with me and bike headlights, relax a bit more, then get a good night sleep. This shouldn’t be too hard as it’s only 11pm or so.
