I took some snaps at my hometown Carnival this afternoon with the Nokia 1020. I must admit that action shots were quite a struggle, there is definitely a steep learning curve with this camera.

It had been a long time I had not succombed to the desire to buy a new camera. And I still have not. No, instead I bought a phone. And I am stunned by its image quality, which is very close to my Leica X1 (if not better … heresy!).

That is it, I’ll no longer need to carry a phone and a camera on a daily basis. My camera is now my phone.

Welcome to the Nokia 1020.

(evidently, the Leica M9 will remain my main camera when out specifically shooting street)
