A 200Mp smartphone, a lost (and found?) Hasselblad X1D, creative fireflies, a photographer in the top 100 most influential people of the year, the best printers of the year, a new film camera, tilt-shift effects without a dedicated lens, copyright infringements, Sony going green, photography you can … write, cropping vs teleconverters, magnificent smartphone photographs, a good way of analysing your photographic style, and more 🙂
By the time you read this, I’ll be eating with my wife in a nice restaurant in Aix en Provence. Why would you care? 😉 They have my camera!
Earlier this week, a work lunch took me to this restaurant. The conversation must have been interesting as I left … without my camera bag, X1D plus 2 lenses, batteries, notebook. The restaurant owners not only secured the camera for me, but called my contact (who had booked) got my number and called me to inform me. TRUST rules! Beyond the factoid, there is a – photographic – reason for me telling you this. Continued at the end of this post. Onward.
OK, so my camera and I should be reunited by now. The incident got me thinking, however.
It’s easy to say the best camera is the one you have with you, but lugging a Hassy system with you everywhere is not all that convenient. I still think it’s the best system I have ever used, and it will always be with me during trips. But for everyday life, a nice notebook camera – that goes beyond the smartphone – is worth looking into. I like to walk a lot, and something vaguely pocketable that’s always with me and high quality does make a lote of sense.
Several contenders exist in the market, one of which I’ll be writing about soon. But I’d like to hear what your thoughts on the ideal notebook camera. What would you look for first and foremost? What would be a dealbreaker?
