The Phone Camera

I love cameras. I don’t really like phones all that much… Which is a shame, because amateur photography is quickly headed towards a merger with the cell phone. And frankly, it only makes sense. The concept above leaked by Sony is where we will be in a few short years. I can already see myself yearning for a “simple” digital camera.

Other Gear

Fenix E11

So I wanted a single AA torch for everyday carry… I ordered 10 different flashlights with prices ranging from $10 to $100 and at the end of the day, I discovered that this Fenix E11 is the best light for me. From a cost/performance standpoint, it’s damned hard to beat. Light and bright – what else would ya want?

Boombot REX

The market is littered with wireless speakers these days ranging from the $300 Jawbone to plenty of shitty little $50 jobs found at Target and Walmart. I’ve tried a lot of them (including the Jawbone) and none are as good as the REX. It’s reasonably priced to at $150. Details here.

Fuji X-M1

So the new Leica is a complete loser on paper. How about three times the camera for a quarter of the price? Introducing the new entry level X-series from Fuji – the Fuji X-M1. If Fuji’s past couple of years are any indication, this will be one hell of a camera.
