I have a scad of cameras and were I to be forced to go to just one, sadly it wouldn't be the Epson. That said, I have two of them and will never sell them.

I believe in UFOs, but I think the decline in reported sightings has to do with the increase in Reality TV programing. We've been put off limits.
