This is an interesting idea/form-factor for a torch. It charges via USB-C too… And, it’s not all that expensive.
The new Monochrom just dropped. I’m sure the file are gorgeous and full of Leica character/contrast, but man… I hate Leica for doing shit like this and then charging $9k for it. Real street photographers, the people that actually care about this camera, will never be able to use it.
You ever spent a stupid amount of money on an aluminum case? Like, a really stupid amount of money? I did… and it has been worth every single penny.
I went from a Toyota Tacoma that features more storage areas than you could ever imagine to a ten year old Cayenne that featured hardly any hidden storage at all. To combat this, I got a cheap plastic tote from Home Depot and strapped it down in the rear storage area. In it, I stored things like jumper cables, a small tool kit, rags, tie-downs, etc…
This worked fine, but the further I got into the interior restoration of the Cayenne the worse that tote looked every time I opened the rear hatch. One evening I was under the influence and said, “Fuck it.” I spent $400 on an aluminum case from Zarges.
It was stupid. It was REALLY stupid. But honestly? I love this damned thing just for the way it’s built, the way it feels, and the incredibly efficient way it lightly stores so much crap. I hate to admit this, but I’d do it again.
