These B&W photographs were shot with a compact P&S Canon PowerShot A720 IS camera. I have been taking pictures with this camera for a little less than five years, and the more I do, the more I love this puppy.
I’ve read blogs, pundits and even recognized photographers making fun of P&S cameras. They go as far as saying they are toy cameras only used to take lousy nickle and dimes snapshots. I object to these totally unfair claims. A P&S camera under a skillful photographer can produce shots you would not believe it was shot with a cheap P&S camera. At the end of the day, it’s not the camera that creates a jaw-dropping shot, but a skilled and creative person behind the lens.
I will keep my P&S camera until it says “No Más, No Más”; and when it does, I will probably buy another one to replace it. That is how much I love P&S cameras. “The proof is in the pudding.” I rest my case and Good Day.
