As you may have noticed, this blog has been somewhat light on pictures. This is due to my old point & shoot which I loved biting the dust(sand) recently and a robbery that got my big DSLR and lenses in the spring. So my Christmas present to myself is… a new high quality point & shoot!
Why Point & Shoot?
I chose point and shoot over the DSLRs because I used it more often. I like to grab my camera and get a quick, unobtrusive shot before people start grimacing or the animal moves. Traveling with a big extendable camera system and lenses doubled the value of my pack on my last major backpacking trip, not to mention all the extra space it took up for lenses I nearly never used.
