I go away for a week and when I get back, it’s just like Christmas.
The new toy (oops, I mean tool) arrived in the mail while I was gone.
Good things come in small packages.
On the right is the workhorse, a Canon 20D with an EF 24-70/2.8L attached. I’ve carried that combination around the world for the past six years now and will continue to do so. Very little out there will beat that glass.
But pointing that beast in some situations certainly draws a bunch of unwanted attention. Not to mention, some places won’t even let me in with it.
So after years of looking for a pocket-sized analog, I finally found something much smaller that meets, or beats, it in many ways.
A Canon G12.
Yep, I like Canon. But that’s because I’ve been shooting Canon since 1989 and I’ve had one of my favorite lenses since then.
A side by side comparison of the features is interesting, especially considering how far the technology has progressed (too bad I can’t link to the page). Definitely lots of features in that small package.
But it won’t replace the workhorse.
I suspect some test shots will make their way onto this blog soon.
