These photographs were taken on New Years Day in 2007 with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX1. At he time, this was considered a quality point-and-shoot, small enough to fit in a pocket with very good image quality for that time. Cameras have gotten much more sophisticated (and expensive) as manufacturers try to fight the camera phone with greatly superior image quality in a tiny package. It's a wonderful time to be a gear-head, especially if you've got a spare $2,800 lying around for the full-frame, fixed lens Sony RX-1. The middle photograph rates extremely high on the nerd scale, but we were having too much fun to care. Our guide, Dave, rode one-footed to make room for his dog. Except for a couple of crashes and battery issues, we had a wonderful time on the Segways.
