The Borg had the idea, give a man an Apple iPhone and he is immediately immersed into the world of the continuous need to be constantly connected. My landlord and housemate, Paul, was instantly transformed into a phone zombie. He walks with it, eats with it, naps with it and showers with it nearby. I’ve lost someone to talk to unless I call him, even in the same room. 😦
What a difference a sensor makes! Yesterday’s field test of the Sony WX500 pocket digital had such inferior quality pictures I got my money back, $328, from Amazon. My Fuji X-E1, $450, with an APS-C sensor took the photo below. No need for noise reduction and a detailed, tack sharp image. I think I’ll just stick with my Fuji X-E1 with my 27mm F/2.7 pancake lens. It’s not as small and has a fixed focal length top quality lens onboard but I don’t have to worry about sharp, detailed pictures in any lighting conditions.
