In 2019 I made a trip to Madeira, it is an autonomous region of Portugal, one of two, the other being the Azores. This was my “digital period” – sort of. I still used film, but this was the lull of my usage and before I saw sense, and came back to it! On this trip I was using a Panasonic G6, which was a great camera to travel with, it’s size and spec were good, I wonder why I ever changed it! My lenses were the kit 14- 42mm which in 35mm speak translates to about 28-84mm. Most of my photo’s were made with this, but I also had the 45-150mm (90-300mm) and a “Leica” 25mm Macro, which I used for only a couple of photo’s.
I see these days it is possible to pick one up for about £160, “like new” and even cheaper with wear, it’s a bargain for anyone who want to shoot digital. I took it on a few trips, and certainly it paid for it’s self. Below are some of the photo’s that I made in the black and white mode. Some with a small amount of editing, levels and that sort of thing. I have deliberately not included any typical “holiday” photo’s that you can see anywhere on good old google!
Next time I go COLOUR!
