Thanks for the appraisal, Gary.   Fortuantely she's a right-handed. 
Cindy thinks the camera comes in a great package and the photos are
superb for a P&S.  She certainly wants light; I prefer a bit more heft
to minimize camera shake.  I haven't seen one in person, but she plans
to drag me to my favorite camera shop next weekend -- in time for the
Thailand holiday.

Hey Dave, 

I couldn't quite tell from your post whether Cindy has picked the
camera up 
or not? I imagine it would be ok for right eyed shooters. Is she a
eyed shooter? 
I'm a lefty, and when i picked it up the LED's were constantly, not
apparent, but digging into my head. The ergonomics are kind of
strange to 
me too, the camera felt kind-of slippery, i think mainly due to the
type of 
plastic it's constructed from. But it definitely rates as one of the 
lightest cameras i've ever picked up, if that's an issue? 

Take care,
