Mmmm.. Sexy | September 15, 2003


The new Canon EOS 300D Digital SLR. One damn fine looking camera. I have no plans of swapping from film to digital, but if I did, this would be the baby I'd choose.

Nah, the digital Leica that woman had at the BD4D thing last Friday, now that was a sexy camera!

I’m very tempted to get the new Canon EOS-300D. It looks pretty sweet for the price. Anyone want to buy my Sony DCS-V1?

Hi Mat,

That leica was a sexy camera, but at 700 I think it’s something purely for rich London new media types. I couldn’t justify that for a digital SLR, let alone a little point and shoot.

Andy, there aren’t any rich London new media types left!

But before you dismiss Leica out of hand purely on a cost basis (pah! it’s only money), it says here, “A person who reaches for a Leica is not just opting for a particular camera, but also for an exquisite new internal attitude that will affect this person’s way of taking pictures, it will even determine it.”

What I’d give for an exquisite new internal attitude.

Next you’ll be telling me web designers in London have stopped sporting Hoxton fin’s, wearing Evisu Jeans and riding micro scooters.

I’m not falling for that one :-)
