I bought a new camera!
For a while now I have been looking for a full-frame camera that is not heavy so I could take around easily and that would fit in a backpack. Mirrorless cameras have those qualities and I am happy to be a new owner of one - I bought the Sony a7 from the alpha series. Here are some sample images, although I still have issues with my lens, because it doesn't auto focus if I am going to use a tripod to shoot myself as I do lol So, I am still thinking of a solution . . .
