After the recent unveiling of the Q2 Monochrom, Leica adds up to the general consent that black and white offers something special when it comes to photography. More than a format, monochrome photography is a particular way of rendering both light and perception. And after the appearance of digital photography, something of the aesthetic was dramatically changed forever.
With more capable photographic sensors, black and white photography transformed into something that happens in post-production rather than in camera; and with the overall Monochrom line-up, Leica takes us back to those days in which black and white was purely a management result from blending optics and light sensible materials. And with the Q2 Monochrom, Leica gives photographers unbiased access to this captivating form of visual expression.
Beyond being an everyday essential accessory, wallets quickly evolve into an identity artifact of every individual. They get so personal, that the only thing we could compare them to, in terms of identity properties, is to smartphones! Curious enough, wallets are rarely bought by the user itself; and rather received as gifts by friends or family. In fact, they tend to be replaced as the result of receiving a new one.
In some cultures, there is a symbolic act related to luck and upcoming wealth. When a wallet is given as a gift, people usually include a bit of cash in them (the amount is not important although some people enjoy giving a bit too much). This symbolizes that one hopes that the wallet is never left out empty, and that can be extrapolated to credit and debit cards too! Not from giving one, but you the idea.
Have you ever wondered how odd would it be to have a minimalist designed wallet filled with coins and other random stuff? Well, that could possibly be the case if you'd be able to travel back in time with your current wallet to, hmmm, let's say the fifteenth or even nineteenth century.
The other day, we were just hanging around and this quite goofy idea aroused into the chit chat. If time traveling was possible in an elegant and non-risky kind of way, which could be the quirks of mimicking with the local culture from the past?
A couple of weeks ago, DJI announced a very much expected piece of image-related gear, the Pocket 2 camera. This is a state of the arte gimbal camera that continues on the Osmo tradition left behind by original DJI Pocket gimbal.
As expected, the DJI Pocket 2 is the perfect lightweight companion for the creative content creator who needs a compact solution that can easily fit on any pocket you could think of. Version 2 delivers 4K/60fps video, comes with a 64MP imaging sensor, and DJI Matrix Stereo technology for you to easily dive into film-making right away from the box.
A bit less than a month ago, a new camera from Fujifilm became publicly announced. This is the X-S10, a camera considered by Fuji as the sweet-spot between their X-T30 and X-H1 cameras. And comes with a huge appeal for some Canon and Nikon shooters who are tempted in getting their hands around something from this other Japanese brand.
The compact design here isn't a synonym for delicate or elegant. This camera has a similar look as the X-H1, in the small size of the X-T30; hence the crossover mentioned by the manufacturers themselves. The X-S10 has precisely designed to be a versatile mirrorless camera for everyday usage, while keeping the reliable feeling of some compact DSLR cameras (more like the ones designed by Nikon rather than Canon to be honest). And by everyday content creation, we mean both photo and video of course.
While not everyone enjoys packing on the same scale, anyone does know that it is a crucial task before boarding an airplane or train. Traveling has slowly returned to be what it used to be, at least it has slowly reached a similar taste to it.
Luggage planning is something one learns by experience rather than reading; but why not hacking the process and avoid some common misfortunes? Proper planning will reduce the risk of getting unpleasant experiences due to forgetting some (or several) essentials while packing.

Most people will agree with us that Mums are one of a kind, and they deserve only the best of this world! Gift cards are usually good for friends and other family members, but mums require some precious time to be invested in when looking for a precious gift.
