Had the chance to go down to the city again recently, and took the opportunity to take along the Canon EOS 300D, mounted with the EF 40mm 1:2.8 STM, for the unplanned street shoot. I have had the well-used and slightly beat-up EOS 300D for quite some time now, and have been using it for pot-shots around the house and the adjoining community field. The camera and lens kit was light and compact enough and carrying it around was not really a hassle.

One thing I noticed as I went through with the shots was that the camera was quite heavy on the battery, which was already almost completely exhausted by the time I managed to get the final few shots in. Not too sure what the problem is, could be the age of the camera itself, which is draining a lot more power than it should, or the original battery I was using that is not keeping its charge well. It was an excellent outing anyway, with the shots edited for the frames posted here.

The EF 40mm 1:2.8 STM, one of a pair of EFs that I have, is still in its excellent self, a favorite, and has always done well on each and every session that I had it mounted on the 300D. On the ASP-C sensor of the 300D, the 40mm STM is equivalent to a 64mm short tele on a full frame 35mm camera, an excellent focal length that draws in the view into a tighter composition.
