What a great weekend! Since last weekend's Wekfest
show fell on a three-day national holiday, we decided it would be fun to take a road trip up to San Francisco and show support to our friends from Weksos Industries.
We attended last year's Wekfest and had a lot of fun; so we definitely wouldn't want to miss the chance to visit all our friends in the Bay Area and check out some of the fresh new car builds coming out of Northern California.
This weekend also gave me an opportunity to test out my new 'point&shoot' camera. For the past couple years, I've been singing the praises of Canon's S90 and G11
pocket cameras, but more recently, I've been getting curious about the performance capabilities of the new Micro 4/3rds cameras
that have been coming out! I looked at demo versions of the Panasonic Lumix GF1
, but opted on buying the GF1 because of its dial controls - it feels more like I'm using my SLR! Granted, the GF1's small image sensor doesn't perform anywhere close to what my Canon 5DMk2 can do
in low light... but for a camera that could fit in your jacket pocket, it's pretty damn capable!
This being said, since MotorMavens is a blog for people that enjoy photography just as much as car culture, I thought I'd shoot the first installment of our Wekfest photos with my fun GF1 point&shoot
camera. Read more...
