Let's show off our best shots taken with a humble point and shoot camera. The only rule is that they cannot be taken with a gigantic Dlsr camera. Show off those shots. Don't be shy, we're not looking for magazine quality shots from cameras that zoom in on a moon rock.

Jeff, great sunset and storm shots! What camera/settings?

Scott, great action and macro shot!

Keep em coming boys and girls. They don't have to be MTB related.

great shots

We might not officially be "photogs" because our camera bags aren't as big as our camelbaks but we can still take some mighty fine shots. I was inter assaulted in another post because evidently you can't be serious about taking photos without a clunky DLSR. I didn't want to entertain an internet war so I left and started this thread. I'm fine with being a "snapshooter". One of my other passions is collecting and editing action movie footage. I'm new to it (less than 6 months) but I am looking forward to growing. Keep them coming! Here is an example of a mellow ride and mountain bike disc golf round. Shot with my point and shoot in video mode and a go pro.

No prob. I wanted to share my photos but didn't feel welcome because of the creature below. It was easier retreating and letting the trolls control the bridge. Snapshooters keep em coming!

Edit: Perhaps there was no troll. In retrospect I overreacted and probably became one briefly. It created a great post with some great shots though. I'm starting a folder grabbing some of these gems.

what makes "photogs" migrate to SLR cameras is that they want to control how the camera records the scene. SLRs are great for that because of all the control parameters given to the photographer. A typical compact camera does it all for you. Yes its easy, and technology has gotten pretty good, but in many cases they still fail to provide the shot you want. Most people dont care, or dont know better, and are happy with that.

Having an SLR does not make a photographer as you point out. A real "photog" can produce great results with a compact if he knows how the camera behaves. The difference is the camera controlling the parameters, or the person. I read the thread you are referring to, and in no way can I see how you interpret Lidarmans or any other post as an "assault". In fact, your language in this thread is more trolling than anything.

Stupendous man, I didn't mention any names, you did. let it stay in the other thread please. I left peacefully. I was not trolling and didn't continue with the flaming. I started my own thread being sure to keep names out of it. Please don't bring it here. I concede that i am not a "photog". I'm now a proud snap shooter. Snap shooters unite!
