  • Viewfinder or LCD screen? Bet Cartier-Bresson would've gone LCD!

    by Alamourus | 15th of December, 2012

    Just got the new Canon M shipped in from Hong Kong (no shipping, tax or duty charges!) and it has no viewfinder. For a lot of people, that is a big omission and it weighed heavily on my mind before I decided to purchase it. I've had compacts before and they are ok but... More

  • Bridge fetish or a lesson in composition? You decide!

    by Tangjans | 21st of August, 2012

    If you follow my blogs and forum posts, you know I've long been a fan of the Micro Four Thirds system. I'm a firm believer that for most photos or end uses we have reached a point where full frame cameras are an unnecessary expense (each to their own, of course!). I've... More
