We lost our Ixus in the move to the new HQ.
Not during the move, but likely in one of the open house days.
Picked up a replacement, a Powershot S110 the other day.
And it’s not only a replacement, but a significant improvement:
- Instead of a laggy touchscreen UI, this has buttons. That click.
- It does RAW.
- It can go full manual, and has an awesomely haptic ring for adjustments.
- It has a 2.0 aperture.
- It’s small, and fits into a pocket.
Haven’t played with WLAN connectivity, but its time will come.
Yeah, in the age of ever-improving phone cameras this feels a bit redundant, but the image quality is significantly better than on my iphone 5. I consider them complementary. After all, the phone is ubiquitous, and the camera more home-bound.

It’s a big fish all right.
KK for lukko (lock). This is a shot of the locks on the Fence of Vows in the top deck of the Umeda Building in Osaka, where couples can purchase and seal locks.

The best poker hand I’ve ever been dealt. Though the hand is not a fully accurate replica – I actually held only two cards, since the game was Texas Hold ‘em.
Sadly the 400+ euros won (the opponent who went all in had a full house) was fake money only, as this was a company function without genuine gambling.
The A Picture A Day-campaign was one of the victims of the triple whammy of busywork. Didn’t give up immediately, there’s a fortnight’s worth of unpublished images in the phone.
I’ll try again, and maybe won’t have to wait until 2015 to start anew.
It’s a mile or seven to Kata Tjuta. Let’s go. Daylight’s a-wasting.
SU for sula (here: open water).

Not the typical January weather.
