Vanity is a great motivator.

So...I may have bought a new camera for the sole purpose of taking selfies.
Well not quite, that would be oversimplifying it terribly, not to mention how terribly shallow that makes me sound. 
Of course there are other reasons apart from the articulated screen that swivels forward to face the user which does make self-portraits so much easier to frame and compose. But 'O-m-g now I don't have to blindly shoot 1726534 of the same photo and delete all the derpy ones to get the perfect shot where my face is perfectly tilted downward to make my eyes look bigger and hide my double chin!' is more or less the crux behind my new purchase.
There's the wifi enabled sharing, different lenses available, and the almost-DLSR quality in a compact size aspects of my new camera too...but...I will admit that I bought a new camera to satisfy my vainglory. Maybe I really am Gen-Z.
But you know it's meant to be when you buy a camera you've been wanting for months with your hongbao money and you still have money left to spare...! Serendipity. Now if only I can get the damn picture sharing app on my iPhone to work.
This is merely the prologue. A narcissist's review (and more self-portraits) of the camera to come.

  4. I just bought a new smaller camera with wifi and I am LOVING it, being able to transfer images from the camera to my phone/tablet/laptop with one button. Sweet.

  5. ...Does this mean you'll no longer be needing your Leica? If yes, I'm more than willing to take it off your hands! ;)

    1. Hahaha! Nope, I'm still using my Leica, just not for self-portraits. Different cameras for different uses! x

    1. The one in this post? It's not a necklace, just baubles Michiekins sewed on to the jumper to make it more Christmassy! x
