2019 resolutions revisited: what we hoped for, and what we got
Resolutions revisited - what we hoped for, what we got
About this time last year we sat down as a team to write some new year's resolutions. But not for us - where's the fun in that? No, we wanted to help our favorite camera and lens manufacturers out, by writing some for them.
Wishful thinking? Sure. Reasonable? Not at all. Borderline condescending, from a group of keyboard warriors who would struggle to complete a moderately complex jigsaw puzzle, let alone make a digital camera? Absolutely.
We didn't get everything we wanted in 2019, but some of our resolutions / wishes / predictions (just go with us on this one, and don't think about it too hard) did come true.
Feel free to play along at home via the comments.
