You have no idea how I love to go for walks with the LC-A. I don't know if it's the same for you, but I know that depending who I am with, I don't take many pictures. Because people can be bored to stop, wait and say very often " what the hell are doing with your camera ? " I was with my brother that day, back in late February, we walked through ( almost ) the entire town and he barely complained. I don't really handle the LC-A like I would love to yet, many shots are pretty blurred or under exposed, but you know what they say, NOTHING WORTH HAVING COMES EASY.
