This was the first time I used a pocket digital camera rather than the Nikon FM2 that had accompanied me on my travels for years. May 2007. I’ve never been one for new kit or new technology – I like the boring old, tried and tested stuff. However of course I now have to admit that I was a bit slow on the uptake with digital photography.
