Fixed it for you.someone using a P&S who knows nothing at all about what they're doing can produce an good photo
I've had a handful of Olympus and Canon P&S POS's through the years. My theory is eloquently summed up by Enel above, and to some extent Lynx: take lots, jettison most, and touch up the remainder once you get home.Enel said:Fixed it for you.
For me the answer was to get a small camera, have it with me always, take lots of photos, and throw away lots.
I am no great photog, but the P&S gets it done.
I've always used a point and shoot.sthrnfat said:Have seen some great pics posted here. Are you guys using point and shoots? Do you just carry them in your pack all the time.
What camera are you using?
Mikesee - you've got some great pics posted - what are you using?
Just be warned that the Canon's that use two AA's have stupid long flash recharge times. Good thing I don't like to use flashmikesee said:My most recent camera (until yesterday ) was a Canon SD900. Loved everything about it except the proprietary batteries. Hoping to remedy that this PM with a very similar camera that uses AA's.
You can't say Holga, and then not post some. :madmax: Although the Holga's I've used were 120 film...wes m. said:I take my pictures with a holga 135 plastic toy camera, it uses good old 35mm film. Award winning ultra sharp action shots, no. Take tons of pics and just delete the bad ones, no. Every once in a while get an awesome shot that defies the suckiness of the camera, yes. You can get some funky double exposure and weird effects with it. Cheap, durable, fun. Every mtber I know thinks it sucks but I like it.

Wow. I just looked that Olympus up and it does look ideal.EGF168 said:+1
That's the best camera I've ever had the pleasure of using, it's light, compact, reliable and the results are consistently amazing compared to my dads other cameras.:thumbsup:
