Congrats, you should have a blast with your new digi-cam. I got an S1 a few weeks back, I have officially been hooked by the digital craze as well.
One misconception about digital's is that some people don't like the idea of it replacing film. I disagree, I find that digital actually compliments my F5, plus saves me tons of $$$ in the process. I have started keeping track of how much money I have been saving since I bought the S1, it will be interesting to see how long it takes until it pays for itself (probably not too long). Going through a brick or two per month adds up quickly!

When using digitals, you replace memory cards instead of film
Might not be that much of an issue for a daytrip, but when going away for a week or so those cards get expensive...
The single 16MB card is just not enough for me to last even a single day (might be able to take a laptop, but that requires a powersource to operate for more than a few hours).

You can avoid the laptop when using the digital wallet. It has 6 GB storage space and is in fact a battery powered hard disk with processor. You download the card content to the wallet when the card is full and use the card again. At home you connect the wallet via USB to your PC and download the pictures. It really works fine for me. Only bad thing is the price.

Thanks for the comment ref my shots. I don't think anyone drools over them! But
Had a look at the Coast Air J31 picture and I'm well pleased with the quality and sharpness.
Digital is the way to go! It wont take long before you look back and say I remember my 1st Digital Camera.
Sorry but you got to get use to this on most of the Digital range. Just needs practise and a little prior planning. Try and focus a little earlier and that way you will have the shot set up awaiting your final shutter press.
May I suggest a product for the Digital Camera?
The screen is often prone to scratching or marking. I bought a product called the DJProtector on the web. It's a little clear glass protector which slips over your LCD display. It will stop it getting marked and scratched. Cost wise was around $15. I wish I could remember the website. They sold all sort for all different cameras and LCD sizes.
