The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
I have started to post this thread a couple of times and held off because I was not sure how it would be received. I decided to post to this forum since I use Canon gear and have seen a few posts where people mention vision issues. There are a lot of ways that our society defines blindness, but I am going to use the US IRS definition (I have never taken the deduction) for this exercise, basically 0 vision in one eye and 20/200 or worse with best optical correction in the second eye. I have been dead on target with this definition of blindness since birth and I am over 60. You may ask "are there blind photographers" and the answer is yes. There are blind photographers who have been published including a book "The Blind Photographer" that was released in 2016. The photography you find with a search for "blind photographers" will cover the gaunt from painstaking attempts to capture the world as "normals" to almost abstract representations of how the blind world may appear to the photographer. I got into photography during college because it was fun, challenging and everyone told me it wasn't the right hobby for someone with my vision. I started with models, landscapes and of course moved to wildlife because it is more challenging. It helps that I grew up in Oklahoma helping a friend with a cattle ranch where I developed a love of the outdoors and animals. I tend to adhere to the Walt Disney philosophy "if you can dream it, you can do it".
I believe most camera companies lag behind in using the their shiny new cameras with computer processors to address accessibility. Almost every electronic device today has embraced some level of accommodation for sight, sound or mobility into their devices. What I would like to do is collect input and write a letter to Canon (I may even copy Nikon) to pass along some feedback. Sony and others may have already addressed some of these issues but I did not see it in the couple of Sony's and Panasonics that I owned. I have not investigated alternative DSLR's since I have used Canon for a large part of my photo life and didn't want to rock the boat. I am only trying to address the vision part of the accessibility issues today and have two questions:
Here are some of my comments to the questions above (best way I can explain my vision is that I do not have depth perception and would need a 10-12 x binocular to see the subject at the same size as a person with 20/20 vision. Glasses only correct a slight blurriness which can be done with the camera diopter)
I am going to stop with these and see what others might propose. I may not be raising an issue that affects most people, but I know a lot of baby boomers who are experiencing a loss of visual acuity. Photography gets in your blood and I know I want to continue my attempts to create art until I can no longer lift the camera.
Very interested in any feedback you may have on the two questions.

When the Fujifilm X-T2 arrived, it was more than just a modest upgrade to the already impressive X-T1. While the new X-T3 hasn't changed the overall design of the camera, this model is way more than an upgrade; rather, it's a quantum leap.
