Since I can still get away without wearing a bra, everyday is a ‘No Bra’ day for me — at least for now.

But, as you must know I also empathize, always, with the Fairer Sex (and lets face it, most anybody is fairer than I). So I am ALWAYS happy to plug ‘No Bra’ day. IF it suits I have no issues if everyday is a ‘No Bra’ day. So hang loose. Enjoy. And I propose that we make December 25th a ‘No Bra’ day also.

These ladies, as far as I can tell (and as you must know I am no expert on such matters), are NOT wearing bras. From “National Geographic” — the new alternative to no-nudes “Playboy”.

I really thought long and hard about getting a Canon PowerShot G3X as an alternative to my Canon Rebel T3i (which has now become Devanee’s camera). In the end the MAIN REASON I did not get it was the lack of a built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF). Yes, I knew I could get an external add-on but that jacked the price beyond what I was willing to pay.

Then as I have amply documented here, I ended up getting a Sony a77 mk II which I had assumed — and maybe even hoped — would be my permanent camera for at least 24 months. Well that was not to be. When I lost 989 images with it, I just could not deal with it. So I ended up getting a Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 as a short-term compromise. I LIKE THE FZ1000. It can take some stunning pictures — out of the box. That appeals to me. But given that I got 100% of my money back on the Sony a77 II I kind of have $1,000 in the bank from my camera fund.

I have been toying with getting another camera to augment the Lumix FZ1000 — primarily one that I can carry around, most of the time, without having to lug the FZ1000. PLUS I have been hankering, this week after again reading reviews of Olympus OMD cameras, for a camera with a LOT of control wheels! I do not like fiddling around with menus to set parameters. I want a dedicated ‘Exposure Compensation’ wheel (like I had with the Sony). Another wheel or two I could customize, maybe for flash and focus, would really appeal. The G5X seems to offer me this capability and it has a EVF and a 1″ sensor.

Yes, I am seriously thinking about it. Might not get it this week! I still need to spend some quality time with my FZ1000. Maybe for Christmas. I will keep you posted.

Bottom line, the Canon PowerShot G5X sure is more attractive than the G3X.
