One Month One Camera – March 2020 (II) – Lessons With The Little Lumix XS1

This month I'm using a Panasonic Lumix XS1 as my only camera. You can read the first post here. After using the little Lumix more, I have a few further observations.  First, did I mention it was tiny? I don't have a particularly large smartphone, but the XS1 is smaller, and feels lighter (I haven't… Continue reading One Month One Camera – March 2020 (II) – Lessons With The Little Lumix XS1

In fact I enjoy using the GRD III so much, I feel like there's… Continue reading One Month One Camera – Feb 2020 (II) – Ricoh GR Digital III – Lost For Words?
