I’m looking for a compact camera that goes well with a suit (as in: small and unobtrusive), survives helicopter attacks, can take three days in a snow cave at high altitude and subzero temperatures, and so forth — all the usual stuff people who use cameras seem to go through these days. The only one I found so far is the Panasonic FT2/TS2. Is it good enough? Yesterday I returned one with a lens that was not perfectly centered. The second sample looks better — the lens is razor sharp all the way to the corners. These two from a forest near Munich from earlier today.
The effort one has to put into choosing these things is ridiculous. Why oh why does it take a camera to make a photograph?
