I love Sony cameras. My first was a Sony DSC HX300, but it was a little bulky to carry around and I realized I didn't need all that 70x zoom, so I traded for a Sony RX100, which is my baby now, I love it. My favorite camera to use so far. Point and shoot, set on auto-everything (can't shoot manual!), easy to use, buttons easy to find and change without looking, and carry around wherever I go.

+The Art of Photography The more I learn about the history of photography, the more impressed I become with the inventiveness of those who worked with emulsion of one form or another. For example, the work of the early avant-garde photographers -- such as Tabard -- who manipulated negatives and used multiple images long before Uelsmann. Then there are those such as Bullock and Cartier-Bresson who were satisfied with making the image, but did not seem to be invested in slaving over the print. In the end, while the technology facilitates, it is only the instrument of the person creating the film. As such, I very much enjoy your episodes on history. For example your recent episode on autochromes caused me to add three great books to my library. Keep up the good work.
