Photography: #VantagePoint

A few weeks ago, me and my wife were invited to attend an event in The Privato Hotel. Which is in a post found on this link.  The event was quite an experience but this is not about that. This is about going around, exploring and finding gems along the way.

My wife is very familiar when I find views, or some photo opportunities, she allows me to do what I want to do which is, take a photo  of whatever I find interesting. After the event I went around and hunted for something interesting, lo and behold I was able to see a view of Makati City from a terrace/smoking area of the hotel.

With that mentioned, I'll stop, and pull out the camera from my bag. And check to see which lens do I have mounted. Unfortunately I all I have with me are my Canon EF 35mm f/2.0 and Canon EF 50mm f/1.8. So the shot that I got is pretty wide.

Thinking about the L16, which has 3 focal lengths in a compact body, which 28mm, 50mm and 150mm. Imagine having that on a compact camera. That would be a great weight lifted off of your camera bag if you have the L16.

Until then, I'll keep shooting with my big and heavy DSLRs. No mirror-less camera for me yet, and definitely no smart phones until I find a light and portable camera that I can carry where ever I go and can hold it's own against my camera/s.
