Instagram's WF Culture 19 gave me a re-share which was rather nice.

February in Walthamstow

We seem to be having a bit of Groundhog day with the weather of late.  Here's a couple of encounters in Walthamstow when the sun has been out.

Camera test: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS10 first impressions

If you're going to put a new camera through a test, then why not opt for a cold drizzly day at Walthamstow market.  This is an upgrade to my Lumix DMC-FX100   Expect similar on board features on the FS10, with the camera body being a lot lighter and the Leica lens has been replaced with a Lumix DC Vario lens. I've never really looked into the hi-tech specs of just how different the Leica compact lens is compared to a standard compact lens. However, the analogue Yashica T4 compact (which you'll be seeing a lot more of on here in 2018) lens was better quality than a lot of hi-spec SLR lenses. Why they never made a digital T4 version is beyond me? For the time being enjoy the FS10 camera trial.
