Editorial: The things I've seen through these. . . lenses

Duo was never intended to be a trophy-case camera. It was specifically designed so that it could be used in the field, without a tripod or a whole slew or support equipment. A few features make it particularly useful for field work:

  • It's light! It weighs in at just under 3 pounds with a loaded Polaroid back. 
  • It's quick! Relatively fast lenses (f/3.5) make it easy to shoot handheld in most situations.
  • It's robust! Throw it in a bag or sling it over a shoulder - there isn't much to break.
Alright, enough of sounding like an infomercial. Click on through for additional photos.

Killing time at Honolulu International Airport. It got thrown in and out of camera bags and overhead compartments with nary a complaint.
Seattle's Pike's Place Market. It got dragged through a crowded conference in a thin messenger bag, and made it through several soggy nights commuting between the hostel and convention center.
Ka Lae, Hawai'i. It survived a 5 mile (RT) hike to Green Sands Beach in the beating sun, constant winds, and blowing dirt and sand.
So, lessons learned? Will it survive to the summit of Kilimanjaro? Well, hard to say. But will it survive and perform admirably in most daily (and many not-so-daily) conditions? Yes, almost definitely.
