    rockin' the dp1 on my trip up to Ottawa to get my visa sorted for Nigeria.

    All shot "from the hip" as the youngsters say...

    The FunkyCam is to my mind the 21st Century Holga. ... then its lens has almost infinite depth of field, so we don't need no stinkin rangefinder, now do we?

    i was indeed going to sell it my friend. it is a serious pain in the a... (well you know) somedays BUT then i use it. i snap a few and well, i don't know. there's just something about it that makes me hang on. silent, compact and with a great external finder it functions about as well as i have found from a compact. (i have used the grd and a few others (g9 etc.) and once you get above iso 400 the images start to go south real quick.) the manual focus interface is down right brilliant! i have also discovered that the highlight clipping i had been concerned about seems to be an issue beyond the sensor. there always seems to be loads of detail in them when i do a little work.

    i am heading off on an assignment that the dp1 will be a very integral part of (dodgy neck o the woods and BIG camera = problems, real fast). i will let you know if it's love after that

    Have a safe trip and post some images and words.....
