Hi Karina,
Nice to hear of the M6 revelation using an unobtrusive camera. :-) Two
things happen, you quietly do your thing capturing moments you otherwise
wouldn't, and doing it without triggering a dozen faces turned towards you &
camera. The best part? Not using that abominable flashing thing some folks
just have to use. ;-)
