Slightly off topic I know but I just couldn’t help it!
This is the thing… I love to take photographs and I especially love to take my camera out on the road with me but I find a DSLR much too heavy and cumbersome. I also find that a compact just doesn’t do what I want it to so here we are, at the crossroads. Bridge cameras as they call them at Jessops are the way forward, I just need to find the right one for me. Sigma DP-1? Ricoh GR-II? Canon G11? Sheesh… I better get deciding as Xmas isn’t too far away!
Shaking up the camera world, Ricoh has just unveiled the GXR model into its line of point & shoot cameras. The GXR’s new claim to fame is not so much its interchangeable lens format but how this process works. The camera’s lens comes complete with its very own sensor meaning that the body is essentially sensor-less. This enables sensors to be paired accordingly with the task at hand and the lens itself.
Hmmmm ( scratches head ) very interesting. I am not a fan of ‘new fangled’ items but if this enables a better photograph who am I to complain. We will see.
