Buy or Die

That is the title I gave this photo half-decade ago captured on July 24, 2010, during my second San Diego Comic-Con. In the six years attended so far, Leica X1 is unmatched for the photos produced. The digicam truly was an extension of my eyes, producing vivid, sharp. and balanced images despite indoor-lighting conditions. I also felt more in control because of the dedicated dials.

I will carry the Fujifilm X100T this year, despite strong interest in the Fuji X-T1. The fully-manual controls, particularly dedicated ISO dial, appeal. But the X100T’s aperture control ring is just too damn convenient. Five years later, auto-ISO is more than good enough, particularly when matched with sensor that delivers little noise in low light.
