Nick Bangkok's current gear

Olympus Stylus 1
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5
Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS30 (Lumix DMC-TZ40)
This one rivals the GX7 for ergonomics. It has enough buttons for the frequently used functions. A great travel camera when one anticipates picture taking opportunities but not quite the photo-specific tour group where each member carries tripod and extra lenses.
This is an upgrade from LX3. I have filled two 8GB cards with the LX's. They're great. Love the 24 eq. lens and variable aspect ratio.
This one is always with me, either in my briefcase or jacket pocket. Nice pic for the size. Good for informal dragonfly hunting.
Ricoh CX1
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX50V
Olympus PEN E-PL5
Have two actually. Black one for me and pink one for my wife. Great for traveling ultralight. The 120 frames per sec. action shots are nice for web posting but not for enlarging. Beautiful screen refuses to display jpg shots from other cameras.
Bought it for the 24 to 720 Zoom, PASM and +/- control. With enough light this one is very good. Just wish it focuses closer at the long end of the zoom. As is, it's not suitable for insect close-up.
Use this one mainly with 20 f/1.7 Pana for product shoot. My assignment is rather specific - pistols on location in the gunshops for weekly articles. The digital 2x is used for close up. Tilt screen is very useful because I use a folding light tent.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX7
Excellent camera with all the setting options. The IBIS is not very effective, but the electronic shutter makes up for it by being totally vibration free.
