  • EVF for conventional shooting 90% of the time. But... the LCD allows for shooting "from the hip", above my head, or inches off the ground - all useful options for more creative shots. So I ...
  • Toronto skyline taken from the southern shore of Lake Ontario, at Beamer Memorial Conservation Area in Grimsby (about a distance of 52km/32mi).
