Just got back from two weeks holiday in Lagos, Portugal (not to be confused with Lagos, Nigeria!). I didn’t announce my departure this time partly because I hadn’t posted much/at all in the preceding week and partly because there’s now sufficient personal information here on my weblog for the enterprising burglar to find and empty my house during the promised period of absence.
Over at Foreign Dispatches a couple of weeks ago, to a post on camera recommendations, I commented that someone who was interested in a single piece of light equipment for snapshots might, rather than purchase a camera, do well to trade their current phone for the Sony Ericsson k750i which features a 2mp camera - sufficient resolution for display on a 1600 x 1200 high res computer monitor, which is where, I’d guess, the vast majority of quotidian digital photographs are ever shown. I made the mistake of choosing a Motorola V3 over the k750i back in January and after much frustration finally reversed that decision a few weeks ago and have become quite evangelical about this phone, far superior to the V3 even setting aside its camera function.
So, I thought I’d put my money where my mouth is and use it (my wife’s Ixus had finally given up the ghost, so she took my Fuji Finepix Z2) for the holiday snaps:
