Little, the new bigger

I like small, unassuming cameras that don't cost very much. Apart from not having to worry about dropping and breaking one they are just like any other camera in that they can record what stuff looks like and are equally good (and perhaps in some ways better) when it comes to conveying ideas.

I'm surprised how good the IQ is these days.  This is a head to head between a 16 Mpx Sony WX60 point & shoot with 1/2.3 sensor (and Zeiss lens) and an 18 Mpx Canon EOS M with APS sensor (fitted with the decent 18-55 Canon kit zoom, set to 20mm and f5.6), mirrorless but comparable to an entry-mid level DSLR in IQ. The Sony is near it's wide end, too - and at the only aperture it offers at that focal length! This is the centre portion of a wide field of view with no resizing of the shot at 100 per cent actual pixels, of OOC jpegs and with no post sharpening (apart from the PS default applied at the time of 'save for web'), just a tweak of levels and desaturation as…

Alison Rossiter: ‘Nepera Velox’ expired August 1906 processed in 2010

Alison Rossiter was a recent MAN podcast guest.  Her photography practice was transformed when having ordered large format film she was incorrectly sent a box of print paper that was decades past its expiry date.

Walking uphill late afternoon it was cold but the bright sunlight and seeing and remembering made so much appealing along the way, smiling, wishing this was the first of five lifetimes
