I was doing a photo reportage for Migration Today magazine about the very lively, engaged and thriving Haitian community in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Shot with the Leica M-4, the 35mm Summichron on Tri-X pushed to 800 and developed in D-76 1:1 dilution. Naturally this was hand held without flash or in available light according to the jargon.

Panasonic Comes Out with the GF7, a Selfie-Centric DSLM Camera
Panasonic has just released the selfie-focused Lumix DMC-GF7, a Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) Camera. It has a 16-megapixel Live-MOS image sensor with their Venus Engine image processor, a 3.0-inch touchscreen display that cleverly tilts up to 180° for Self Shot Mode, Full 1080/60p HD video recording with Dolby Digital stereo sound, a super fast Contrast AF (Auto Focus) system that can exchange signals between lens and camera at up to 240fps, and built-in Wi-Fi for connecting the camera to compatible iOS or Android devices running the Panasonic Image App.
Nutty eatures like "Jump Snap" ( it takes a picture while you are mid-jump) and Snap Movie Mode (records moving pictures for short periods of time with optional Scene Effects) make the GF7 of great inerest for the more adventurous types. With it's Intelligent Auto (iA) mode and Scene Guide this camera is useful for photographers of all skill levels.
