If you suffer from gear envy, you might want to skip over this post. Apparently children from wealthy Chinese families these days are traveling with fancy DSLR cameras while on vacation. A person named Liu Li Yang recently published a series of photos over on Chinese social networking service Renren that show a group of tourist children clutching expensive Canon and Nikon DSLRs and lenses.
People are pointing to the images as an example of China’s growing economic clout and of the rapidly growing gap between the rich and the poor.
You can find the entire series of higher-res images over on Renren.
