Re: Went to a local Street Fair - No Photography

That's my point with use of smaller cams...the Sony RX100 will be huge in effect, small in notice-ability. My friend uses a 70-200 2.8 white lens...thinks he gets respect due to the pro look. duh. I think I get shots by being quick, small, and at a distance if possible.

Had a street vendor yell at me in Cartagena...my S100 is slow enough as is...and then someone walks into the frame...anther 3 seconds wasted. Fast, move on...get the shot. Facebook it. lol...
