Wikimedia CH/Micro Grant/Buying a camera for sport photography

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Please provide the following information for your micro-grant request:

Your Username: Pleclown

Your Country of residence: Switzerland

Amount requested: 498 CHF

Planned activity: Buying a camera for sport photography

People involved
(e.g. How many people can benefit from the micro grant you request):

  • Pleclown
  • Fabienp (maybe)

Please explain what influence your activity will have on Wikimedia Projects
(e.g. quantitative: number of new pictures uploaded to commons, no of new articles created / qualitative: strengthen the community of german-speaking wikipedia authors etc,): Thanks to WMCH (and the Foundation), I will be able to go to the YOG in February. However, the Foundation does not wish to fund a second camera. I propose to buy a second-hand one. This camera costs 498 CHF. I will take it to Norway and use it there. Afterwards, this camera could go to Fabienp (if he is interested). This camera would allow me to take more picture in Norway, and would be used by Fabienp for hockey photos.
