This little bar sits between Denver and Castle Rock Colorado, along a once sleepy little road connecting the two cities. Now, it’s everyone’s favorite shortcut. I have always wanted to make an image of this bar, but the opportunity never presented itself until recently. You might know by now that I have a camera on me at all times. However, the type of camera I have varies. I thought I would take a second to outline the 3 category of kits or systems I run around with. You can find more detailed information on my gear page.
- iPhone – As Chase Jarvis has successfully demonstrated, the Best Camera is the one you have with you. For me, it’s my iPhone. You can find a list of apps I use here.
- DSLR – A lot of bells and whistles here. You can find the my various system configurations here.
- Go-Lite Point n’ Shoot The focus of this post isn’t the iPhone of the full DSLR system. It is that dynamic middle ground where it seems most camera manufacturers compete….the Point n’ Shoot. There is quite the spectrum of cameras that fall within this category. I have shot them all. Canon Powershots, Nikon L & P series, Panasonic, Sony, etc… That being said, I have finally found my perfect Go-Lite Point-n-Shoot system. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5. I liked it so much, I wrote up a review of it here.
Whether it is the Lumix LX5, or some other compact camera, you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars to make great images. The cameras that were once second class citizens are pretty darn cool nowadays. So go out, grab yourself a ‘Point-n-Shoot’, and Point-n-make some kick ass images!
