Recently (well not just recently
) with the introduction of NEX, talk of gear, you know "better", more expensive gear, dominates. One would think that it is not possible to take any worthwhile photos with anything that is not expensive and/or the newest. Let's have a tribute thread to lowly tiny sensor digicams and the photos we have made with them!
Please post photos you like that were taken with a tiny sensor (smaller than 4/3) camera or camera phone. EDIT: See new message right below.
Let's celebrate photography in this thread! I know that if Sonolta was still here he would participate, but we can get this thing going too!EDIT on 2014/7/16: Sensors no larger than 2/3". When I started this thread in 2010 all the sensors smaller than 4/3 were much smaller. Since then though there are lots of new cameras with 1" sensors from Sony, Nikon, and Panasonic. Those are fairly large sensors so let's keep this thread to the tiny sensors that were originally intended. Somewhere buried in this thread a year or two ago I posted saying the same thing, but I think it would be better to update this original post with the info.
I will get the ball rolling with 3 photos:
