Covering the Prime Minister's visit to Chinatown with the compact G1 was like showing up at a gunfight brandishing a butter knife. That was what some of my media friends on the scene thought when I showed up. Without the benefit of a longer lens (left), it seemed like an impossible task.

Story: Plan B.
The problem was not so much the equipment but the large turnout of supporters, members of the public and tourists at Petaling Street this morning. It was almost impossible to move about, trapped in the sea of people. The G1 has one important advantage over the more expensive DSLRs in such situations. Its articulate LCD screen allows easy viewing and shooting (with my arms fully extended) above the crowd.

All pictures Canon G1, rated at ISO 50
