Weekly Photography News and Inspiration Roundup

It’s another Friday and that means it’s time for another roundup of photography related news and links that I found interesting during the week. Incidentally this week’s featured photo is “Wild Grass” (by me!) and was taken with the D700 and processed using VSCO Film 4.

Sony RX100 Is a Pocket Camera a Pro Can Love - NYTimes.com 

David Pogue loves the Sony RX100. I can’t wait till this gets released over this side of the pond. Sony could really be on to a winner with the RX100.

Leica’s fame was built on the work and celebrity of Henri Cartier-Bresson. However, I cannot imagine it would please HCB to see the “luxe” direction Leica is taking.

If he were alive today, I have to believe he would urge Leica to invest a little more in the future of cameras as “working tools” rather than in the future of cameras as “investments.”
Interesting point of view from Imaging Resource. It’s worth reading the whole article.

Steve Huff compares the video of both cameras. The Olympus is the clear winner, by a long shot. What’s really impressive is how well the 5-axis stabiliser works on the Olympus.
