After a week of exploring the interface, buttons and functions of my new toy, I am now quite comfortable in using it as my primary camera for street shooting. Credits to my father for giving me this wonderful gift!
So far, I am enjoying the stealthy feel of this camera. I can compose and shoot photos without drawing too much attention compared to my bulky Canon DSLRs. Image quality is really good. And the retro feel is a plus. The only problem that I have encountered is the poor battery life. I am planning to order two spare batteries online for travel shoots (unit and accessories are not yet available in Davao).
