There’s been a drought

There’s been a drought …..in me posting. I really must use the schedule post feature more.

Well September became a busy month. We moved house and just about managed to unpack before a cruise celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary.

On our return it was a matter of getting back into everyday life routine. Which is difficult after relaxing on a ship, getting served great food and remembering not to take (too much) advantage of the all inclusive drinks package.

I will post some pics in the coming weeks.

As this was more of a holiday than a photographic expedition I only took my Nikon V1 and a couple of lenses. At one stage I only used my phone to take pictures.

Walking around various locations there seemed to be a lack of ‘large’ cameras. DSLR users were few and far between. No wonder camera manufacturers are struggling.

The overwhelming majority of people were quite content (as was I) to use a mobile phone to capture images.

What a lot of gear heads on the forums forget is how the end product will be used. People using mobiles for their photography needs probably won’t show those images on anything bigger than an iPad [insert your preferred choice of tablet here].

In fact they more than likely posted to social media, got a few likes and that will be that.

As far as I can see the latest raft of mirrorless cameras still don’t seem to address the problems mobiles have eliminated. The ability to capture an image, edit it and post it to the internet all in one device. With a few taps of a screen.

Will ILCs ever have such a workflow?
