The Groaning of The Credit Card

I’m off to London and then Venice for a little break (Manuela’s uncle has an empty apartment there and flights worked out at €6, including taxes :) ).

Although my credit card is a bit strained, I couldn’t stop myself buying the above D-Lux 5, which has come down in price, for the trip. Although I love my Nikon, I’m getting tired of lugging it around.

I’ll let you know how I get on, and if it was worth the money. If this little Leica can’t take good pictures in Venice, the most beautiful of cities, it truly will have been a bad buy!

    I’ve just been to Venice and am still rather envious of your upcoming trip. It’s such a beautiful city I think even the worst cameras would take a good photo! Have an amazing time :)

    Wondering how you find the shooting speed on the Leice? Is there much of a delay between button press to shutter action?

    And while I’m at it – where do you get your vanilla? am growing it in my garden here in colombia and am tempted to test it in ice cream. someone told me that there is a ban on artificial vanilla.

    The old Leica was terribly slow, but I find the DLUX5 responsive enough!

    How cool it is that you’re growing vanilla! Wow. We get ours from different places (we use four), but mainly our beans come from here. I doubt they’d sell small quantities, though.
