above: Chinatown dragon – NYC 2017
A short trip to NYC last week gave me the chance to do a shake down with my new Sony RX100 V point and shoot camera. I didn’t want to bring a lot of photography gear this time so the RX100 is the only camera I took with me.
Our visit happened to coincide with Chinese New Year celebrations that were happening over the week-end and since we were staying in Chinatown, we got up close and personal with the festivities. The smells, the food and the crush of people in New York’s Chinatown is always amazing to me and the little point and shoot did a great job keeping up. And even though I didn’t shoot a lot of 4K or slowmo, the video looks great too.
Here are a few of the still images that I made with the RX100 during my time in the Apple last week.

according to Wikipedia: Manhattan’s Chinatown holds the highest concentration of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere and is actually divided into two different portions. The western portion is the older and original part of Manhattan’s Chinatown, primarily dominated by Cantonese populations and known colloquially as the Cantonese Chinatown. Cantonese were the earlier settlers of Manhattan’s Chinatown, originating primarily from Hong Kong, Guangdong Province, and Shanghai. They make up most of the Chinese population of the area bordered by Mott and Canal Streets
