Show us what you can achieve with a compact camera

Majority of us spend our time discussing the latest DSLR's , lenses etc, but possibly forget we can still get cracking shots with a compact. So why not use this thread to show what can be achieved with a compact

I'll start with a £80 job (Fuji A350 from memory) :-

Re: Show us what you can achieve with a compact camera

A slightly more compact camera, my mobile phone k750i (all 2MP of it! Edited in PS but real pics, Jack! 1st is a 2 image pano)

Cardiff Bay Lock Gate design
What always makes me laugh about this "art" is the mistake on the LHS! Surely the easiest bit to get right (bearing in mind the rearmost arc is about 50m long, painted on the seawall behind)

Re: Show us what you can achieve with a compact camera

Thanks. I think we underestimate what a powerfull tool the modern compact is. I had a 16"x "20" print made of #3 and it hangs on my wall. Not as good as it would have been from my 14.6mp camera but good enough for a decoration, there again how many times do we print something that big?

Re: Show us what you can achieve with a compact camera

All these pics do make you wonder why we spend 10x as much (or more) on fancy DSLRs and lenses.

Yes, OK, there are all sorts of reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with boys' (or girls') toys , but these pics do show that a compact camera is a very capable photographic tool, and maybe sometimes it's easier to frame a good photo if you're not having to think about all the dials, buttons, bells and whistles.

Re: Show us what you can achieve with a compact camera

Some great shots , makes you wonder; do we really need to lug around a dslr plus lenses when we are out and about, or would a couple of high end compacts suffice and just leave the big stuff back in the studio!

Re: Show us what you can achieve with a compact camera

Well there are some great shots I must admit. But I do know why I take out my expensive camera gear There is no way I could achieve with my canon powershot s45, what I now can with my D300. That doesn't mean that my powershot wasn't a good compact. It was and it still serves me well indeed.
