Stepping off the tube at Westminster, we were instantly met with a sight which is one of the increasing number of reasons why I am considering ditching my DSLR all together ; tourists. Sodding tourists with their sodding DSLRs stopping every five sodding steps to take a picture of a sodding tree. Apologies for the outburst. It’s fair to say that this irks me somewhat. I just don’t understand why someone would choose to carry around those cumbersome things when they just don’t need to. Better camera never ever equals better photographer – just saying.
Besides, there are some amazing Compact System Cameras on the market right now and things are only going to get better. Some of my favourite photographers (David Hobby and Zack Arias to name two) have already ditched their DSLRs in favour of smaller but no-less-impressive cameras like the Fuji XPro-1 and X100s.
