I just ordered a Panasonic Lumix LX3 check out some of the photos here on a flickr LX3 set. And also a link to the LX3 blog. I can't wait to test it out! I'm rather excited about the dynamic black and white!


Update on the camera love

The new "hots for" is the Panasonic Lumix LX3 not exactly the GF1 but it's a nice compromise for the price. Gonna check it out more.


Digital Cameras

I'm going through a big phase of de-cluttering and downsizing. Mainly because we will need to do it for when we move overseas in July and also because I'm realising more and more that we don't need this much stuff. I would say that we probably don't have all that much stuff to begin with which is good but we really don't need much of what we do have.
You tend to collect things because you think you will need it, which is okay because you may very well need it, but if you haven't used it in 6-12 months, then you don't need it. I don't understand why people pay for storage space, to store stuff they don't use anymore. GET RID OF IT! Let someone else make good use of it.
So to the real point of my post... I sold my DSLR Nikon D70s, I'm getting rid of my video camera and selling my compact digital and looking for something that's a nice compromise. Something compact that take nice pictures and has good quality video as well. I've been checking out a few and have kind of got the hots for the Canon IXUS 120IS. A rather nice size for travelling and it has HD movie! Seems like a great choice to suit my needs. Although, there's still time to look. We'll see huh! When I do decide, I'll be sure to post some pictures.


adding to the previous post

Something that gets me excited about design again is "the fad experiment"! It's marvellous!

It's been too long since the last one

and cat names don't count.

So I've lost the desire to design. I'm not sure if I will get it back or if I want to get it back. I'm rather into tattoo's at the moment (watching lots of Miami Ink) and I would love to tattoo but unfortunately my drawing skills are not up to scratch. I could practice but like most things I get into, I will probably lose the desire to tattoo also. So I will sit and ponder this for a while before I make the changes to get into drawing and if I still want to do it in a few months then I might just have the desire to do it and stick to it.

I really, really want to get a rather large tattoo but I don't want to rush into it because yada yada, you know why people don't want to rush into tattoos. I've seen some rather yucky tattoos on people but I have to keep telling myself that it's the person's choice and my tattoo choice would probably be "rather yucky" to someone else that see's it. So that's the tattoo part done....

Now to other life stuff. The prospect of moving to Europe is quite exciting (sitting here currently eaves-dropping on Roy's phone interview with a Swiss company). Having the opportunity to travel and move overseas is such a great thing to have! There is a gigantic world out there and to get to see a large chunk of it just makes my stomach get butterflies! There is not much more that excites me as much as getting to see how other cultures live and work! I would love to see a world without borders... Everyone lives for everyone, not just one country. Patriotism sux!
Don't get me started on Religion too... Maybe I'll save my views for another post.
