The first two weeks of September I’ll be backpacking around South America with Ryan and a couple of friends. I’m incredibly existed about the opportunity to explore a continent that is totally foreign to me.
And while I’d love to have more time on this trip, I plan to make the most of the break from reality that I get by taking lots of photos, and hopefully a few good ones.
However, the thought of lugging my Nikon D810 and lenses across the countryside had me a bit weary. Not just the weight and size of it all but the likelihood of getting mugged or otherwise losing my gem.
So I went to the Net and searched around for a reasonably-priced solution. I needed something small, light, ambiguous and affordable. That’s when I stumbled up the not-yet-released Sony RX100 IV.
At 20 megapixels it would be a happy medium between my 12 Mp Nikon D700 and 36 Mp Nikon D810. The 24-70mm f 1.8-2.8 equivalent lens would cover the Nikon 24-70 f2.8 lens which is gigantic in size and weight. Plus it shoots 4K video and fits in your jeans pocket.
It’s everything I have ever wanted in a pocket camera. I immediately preordered it on Amazon and can’t wait to see what it can do. There is a chance that I’ll actually have it by the end of this week. How awesome would that be?
