We've featured doing Street Photography with camera phones before. But I have never heard of anyone using the Asus ZenFone as a street camera, intrigued I contacted Jasper who's been shooting with it about his opinion of the camera side of things.
I am a social documentary and street photographer based in London. I am interested in the social landscape created by contemporary capitalism. Which is why I need a camera that is portable and discreet.
After years of using Nikon and Leica’s . I bought a second hand 1st Generation X100 unit as the reviews on the camera were outstanding and I wanted something small enough to carry with me all the time .
I wanted a mirrorless that is compact, durable, and ergonomic on my hand which doesn’t need those bells and whistles (like hand grips, thumb rest) to get a steady shot. Some of my previous mirrorless compacts were plasticky, flimsy and they easily wear. After researching on brands and comparing cameras, I decided to purchase the black OMD EM10 and had it imported from Japan.
I brought my Ricoh GR in 2015, and imagine my surprise when Olivier asked me to do a feature about me using the camera……because I got it because of him !. 🙂 He had a Ricoh GR ebook back then that was the last piece in pro/con debating that enforced my decision of owning one.
Francois Nadeau recently got an Olympus OMD EM1, after getting some great shots, he submitted his first impressions about the camera.
