Snapshot Voyager is about my own personal photography journey. I am always looking to try something new, inquisitive as to how it works, and to the end results I might achieve.

Heathrow Dixons

While I was waiting in Heathrow airport for my flight, I decided to wander through the camera shop Dixons.  I got to try out a couple cameras that I hadn’t really had the chance to play with, a Pentax Q and a Fuji X100.
I was surprised how small the Pentax Q was, and the images surprisingly good, even just in the camera store.  The 50mm equiv. F1.9 lens has the ability to render backgrounds in a nice out of focus bokeh, despite the tiny sensor.  Nice camera, but can’t justify the ridiculous price.

The Fuji X100 stood out for its amazing hybrid optical electronic viewfinder.  I can see why people like it.  Especially cool was the in viewfinder histogram.  Has the feel and character of a Leica, and you wonder why Leica hasn't made a camera like this themselves.
