A non-geek photog ( she shoots with a Canon G12 on Auto Mode ) emailed this article to me:

So, she got me an iPhone5 as a Christmas present. The iPhone5 camera IQ is not too bad in good light and makes it convenient to upload pics for sharing on social media sites , self pics of my travels, and to quickly email pics to friends and family. Not so good IQ in restaurant/pubs, just OK, I reckon.

I'm thinking of just using iPhone5 as the backup to my existing MFT or Sony RX100 when on vacation trips since I'm just a casual photo enthusiast snapping memory type photos. And I have no illusions of taking award winning Nat Geo type photos. I'm at the age where small and light kit is good.


Do you agree with the NYT article?

Some parts re OK. The rest, no.

How many of you are planning to add more MFT/mirrorless cameras or lenses to your stable in 2014?

I have a very complete MFT kit right now. Considered replacing an existing MFT camera but decided to wait until there is a successor to the GM1 or the GX7.

Why? Need or G.A.S. ?

I can't honestly say that I have a need for any camera or lens. But I don't consider that I have G.A.S.  either - acquisitions are planned at least 6 months in advance and stay with me for many years. I very rarely switch camera lines.

And, do you use your smartphone as primary backup to your MFT /mirrorless kit(s)?

My smart phone is my back up for my point & shoot travel camera, which is not a backup for my MFT cameras. Might consider replacing the the P&S with the GM1 or GM2.

Regards and happy 2014.

And to you and yours.
