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.

Helped by the Lottery Walthamstow Wetlands is now open to the general public. Boasting 211 hectares courtesy of Thames Water reservoir lands with Forest Road cutting through the middle, so it's pretty much in two parts but hey, don't let that stop you from visiting. Armed with my Nikon D610 here's a visit to the right-hand side of the Wetlands, being the NW side. With pylons and strange machinery being part of the landscape, there was a reminiscence to the 1970s British Public Information films with a Clock Work Orange holiday vibe to the place. You could even call it a Brutalist Butlins.
More Walthamstow adventures to follow...
