The Canon G10 meets my newest daily walk around camera and lens, the Lumix S1R + the Sigma 45mm f2.8. Also, I passed the 4300 mark for blog posts. Hooray for me!
I'm having a lot of fun incorporating the Lumix S series cameras into the way I do photography. I have the two S1s that are tasked with day-to-day commercial work. They handle the video and the theatrical documentation and all the regular portrait work that's destined for some company's website. They work well and the lenses are probably the best I've ever owned. The only caveat so far is just the weight and bulk of each piece in the system. But I feel spry enough to cart them around for now. When I finally hit middle age I'll trade everything in for a couple more G10s. They are small and light.
I've more or less settled on the S1R, the high resolution version of the Ss, for my daily, personal shooter camera. I use it with either the Sigma 45mm f2.8 lens but when I'm hungry for a bit of manual focus nostalgia I like to put the 50mm f1.7 Carl Zeiss lens on the camera and focus slowly and carefully. Sometimes just to make other photographers cringe... And lately I've been using it in the Monochrome L mode.
Today I was walking around the house with the dog making photographs with a tripod mounted G10 and I came across this camera sitting on the dining room table. Just a big package of potential abandoned for an ancient point and shoot. I pulled the tripod over and took a few shots down around a full second of exposure. Hey look! The big camera is totally in focus!!! Miracle!!!!
There's room on the studio desk for both. It's fun to play with new cameras. Just as much fun to re-play with the older ones.
