My brother Amin is a doctor and fellow at Johns Hopkins in MD. He has also been blogging about photography for some time. He recently recruited a few other enthusiasts and launched a new blog called SeriousCompacts.
Here’s his description of the site:
“Welcome to Serious Compacts. We are a photography site with a focus on advanced compact cameras. These days it seems that many people associate "serious” photography with the use of large, heavy gear. Our site will feature testing and discussion of the remarkable compact tools available to photographers. We will also highlight some of the outstanding work being done with this gear"
Check it out if you are getting the shutterbug and are looking for something more than what your cameraphone or point&shoot can offer but aren’t ready to step up to a pro camera or don’t want the bulk. Or if you are just a gear head :)
