Every few months I look into the newest crop of digital camera's. My favourite analog camera is the Contax T2 so Im hunting something comparable. I love the fixed lens and that by some magic every time you press the shutter you're going to get a good shot! The closest digital comparison I found was the Ricoh GR. Which sadly died after a leaking dry bag incident in Thailand. Currently, I've been using the first generation Sony RX100. It's small, unobtrusive and has a great flash for night time photography.
Still, I miss having a full format sensor. My research for a simple full format setup has led me to the Sony A7 with Voigtlander lenses. Small honest and straightforward especially coupled with a fixed manual lens like the 35mm voigtlander. Foster Huntington showed off this exact setup on his instagram and seems happy with it;
Im still undecided because I'm weighing the image quality for the fact that the Sony A7 might not be a take everywhere camera. And thats what I love about the Sony RX or the Ricoh GR. They easily fit into a jacket pocket so theres no excuse to throw it into your bag when you leave the house.
Still havent made a decision but currently content with the little RX100 until I get the chance to use both and really assess just how much better the images out of the Sony A7 will be.
I'm in love with this collection of "Brutalist" websites. As an UX designer its frustrating how much our industry adheres to standards and norms. Its so nice to watch this movement break through all the rules of what a website should be. While 99% of us are obsessed with grids typography and the ease of the web the brutalist movement might actually bring back a little excitement and surprise into surfing the web!
zoe in the park.
