"A Day in the Life of Africa" as well as being photo shoot within the harsh African environment is, in another sense, an ambitious project. This is the first time that a photo shoot using only digital cameras has been tried in the "A Day in the Life" series. For the "Day in the Life" series, always striving for state-of-the-art over the years, this was also a challenge from the photographic technology aspect.
For equipment we contributed 120 CAMEDIA E-20 cameras and peripherals along with portable dye-sublimation photo quality printers, enabling on-the-spot checking of photos. For those that requested it, we made available high image quality compact digital cameras and external flash units. We also contributed 20 CAMEDIA P-400 printers capable of photo quality A4 size printing for use in the production of the photo book.
