Years ago I bought the original RX100, replacing the Lumix LX3, a very nice little camera but it had terrible video. Back then the RX100 was still the great undiscovered ‘take anywhere’ camera. Perfect for hiking up a mountain as you can see from this picture on the left. Not the prettiest colors in the world, but excellent dynamic range, which is why it makes for a great BW shot.
It sounds like a good idea: Go to Brussels for a weekend, meet like minded people, talk about film making. And because it is Brussels this will include nice food and and a lovely city. Haroun from Filmmakers Corner had organised a workshop in Brussels with Philip Bloom.
