The World Through Rose-Colored Glasses

So the G9 powered up one day and decides that from that moment on, all pictures shall be pink.


Now this should make me happy - my camera viewing the world through hot-pink colored lenses. But it annoys the hell out of me. Why? Because my nice pink stuff disappear in the pictures. And I never wanted the entire world to be pink - take for instance the hot pink urinals in Metro Manila for which Bayani Fernando shall burn in hell for eternity.

Seriously though, this is such a bummer. I'll try taking it to the repair shop but I'm not keeping my hopes up. Partly because it's probably going to be expensive, and partly because I've been scouting for a replacement already (I move on fast). If Leicas aren't so bloody expensive I would've bought one this afternoon. And no, I'm not buying a dSLR because that would just be pretentious.  I just want a real good point and shoot with maybe a couple of manual functions, preferably one that looks old-school so I wouldn't have to worry about it looking outdated. I'm looking at the Powershot SX200 but the flash is so darned annoying. Any suggestions?
