They Don’t Scream “Look at Me”
With a smaller camera, you can blend in. With an EVIL camera, you can blend in and still get great shots. This combination of size and quality was the reason the Leica M series was the camera of choice for both street shooters and war reporters, from Henri Cartier Bresson to Sebastião Salgado. And because there is no mirror to flip, they’re quiet, too.
My take, it’s more like “I may not know the difference between an aperture, ASA, ISO or the rule of thirds in composition but hey, look at me i can afford this bigass and i’m a d*#chebag.” Lol. It’s the new status symbol. Go to any mall and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
The pictures and video from on-the-ground reports in Haiti following the magnitude 7 earthquake Tuesday are truly heartbreaking. But it is difficult to imagine the full extent of the damage to that country and its capital, Port-au-Prince, in particular. These new satellite images released Wednesday by Google and GeoEye show the devastation from above, giving a new view of the severity of this disaster. We’ve posted some of the images here. You can also scan the entire city with Google Earth as well.
