I will start with an apology for having not posted anything over the past week. I was away in the Lake District at the start of the week and then had to get my Lenscraft Newsletter out.

Given I have been in the Lakes, I though it only fitting to share one of the images I shot.

Ordinarily when I visit the Lakes I take either the Olympus EM5 or the Sony A7r. This time I decided to be different and packed the Sony RX10 so that I wasn’t needing to switch lenses all the time. As I can carry this in a small shoulder bag, it also gave me room to fit my Hasselblad XPan + 45mm and 90mm lenses in my bag pack (together with a few rolls of film). In the end I only shot one roll of film with the XPan but managed many more shots with the RX10.

The RX10 really is starting to become my go to camera when I am out walking. I like the quality and look of the images but most of all I like the convenience of a fixed lens camera with a good focal range (24mm-200mm).

I also noticed Sony have released the RX10 MkIII which sports a 24mm-600mm lens. I have some misgivings about this move and worry that they will have made too many compromises. I think I will keep to my MkI for the time being.

Hope you like the image and have a great weekend.

    A great shot from your day walk in the lakes. I just don’t know you do the photography and carry on to do the imaging, you definitely have more patience than me
