iPhone 5 - I could not imagine having a different brand of phone, my brain cant slow down to the speed of competitors devices, I feel like my brain glitches as there device is trying to load something or trying to simply swipe to another screen. I went with the 16gb version which was a terrible idea since I fill it up constantly but by doing so keeps me backing up files more often which is a good thing. The camera on this phone is great, the 5s is sure to be better but I am content with this phone for now.. It's really a photo document device and I wish it had existed when I were young.
iPod touch - it is brilliant for reading since I dont get distracted with texts or calls when reading... and... another back up camera when needed.
Timberland wallet - I ran into this wallet when I was in the market for one and it really is the perfect wallet. I bet you are wondering John Cusack? My brother stuck that ripped out picture of him and stuck it in a birthday card he got me almost 10 years ago! I stuck it in my wallet that day and have kept it with me ever since.
Olloclip - A new purchase over the past weekend, I have only tested it mostly in low light with Ryder and it managed to capture a decent image. Looking forward to messing with it more.
Fujifilm XQ1 - Not many people carry a pocket camera on them anymore... You should! iPhones are great for documenting and they are the best if that is the only camera on you. What a pocket camera can do is give you more options if you are without a bigger camera. I've come to love shooting with the on camera flash WEIRD RIGHT? There is something beautiful about that tiny flash that is on that camera. I feel if William Eggleston was my age in this era of technology the xq1 would be one of his cameras and everyone would hate on him for using it and calling it art... Just like how he had been made fun of when he was younger after a showing of his work at MOMA, now he is known as a legend from those same photographs. Another thing to point out about a pocket camera is space.. SPACE AND LOTS OF IT, I have a 32gig memory card in my xq1 and my info shows I can shoot over 10,000 photographs. I recommend the xq1 to anyone looking to buy a pocket camera... Great price, great size and the flash option actually gives a great look, bad thing is that it is terrible at high ISO but keep it down with the flash and you'll be stoked. My friend has the Sony rx100ii or the iii either way that camera seems insane, have not heard much about high iso but ive seen some low light images that do look amazing. I just really like what fuij has been doing with photography the past years though, I hope that they will also be coming out with a 1 inch sensor pocket camera.
So there you have it... My pockets full of photography options.
The photos on this blog will have a caption of the camera used and random info if needed.
