Changing Blog Name, Enough Lumix - I'm Going Back To Film (Diana Style)

Image Source:

Okay, I am packing for a trip, struggling with my list of camera equipment to take along. Is it my standard two DMC-G3 kit with a bunch of primes and one zoom? Should I include my new Nissin Di466 flash? Do I have all of the batteries, chargers, and cards I need? How about back-up? Can I use my wife's laptop, will the iPad suffice?

Maybe I'll minimize, and just take the DMC-LX5 this time. Seems limiting.

Well, screw it. I'm tired of all of this complexity. I'm going to change my blog name to, throw the plastic cameras in my suitcase (one in carry-on, one in checked baggage - who cares if one disappears?), add some 400 speed drugstore film, and goodbye digital world.

I bet you can't wait to see what I come up with on this trip, can you? I'm not even going to scan. It's target scan-to-CD for me, and from now on you'll get that in all its low contrast, dusty glory.

From now on, our gear talk will be VERY basic. Hang on, though, I think Lomography sells a fisheye camera, right? Well, here I go again...

Don't delete the DMC-365 bookmark yet.

Happy April Fool's Day. See you tomorrow.
