The Digicams that Roared

Unread postby bakubo » Fri Aug 21, 2015 11:13 am

Recently I was reminded again about how even our tiny sensor digicams are darn capable and even my lowly Canon G16 would probably have been a dream years ago for the famous photographers represented in this photo exhibition:

Radical Transformation: Magnum Photos into the Digital Age

viewtopic.php?f=52&t=7965

Also, we have had an ongoing photo thread going for over 5 years:

Tiny sensor revenge gallery thread!

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=4195

Recently I selected just a few of my photos taken with various tiny sensor digicams and created a new, small album of photos:

http://www.bakubo.com/Galleries%202/Digicam%20Praise/index.html

The photos were taken with the following digicams and are in chronological order starting in 2000:

Olympus D-340R
Olympus D-510Z
Minolta D7i
Canon A70
Canon A540
Canon A590IS
Canon S95
Canon G15
Canon G16

About 85% in this album were shot as jpegs and the rest were raw. Take a look if you are interested. I have a ton more and still use my G16 and S95, but this is a small album to give a flavor. :)

Of course, if you look at them side by side, there are probably little coincidences...

Thank you Pako. That photo brought smile to my face.
It has such an endearing quality.

I liked the third one the most Henry. I was in such similar situations so many times,
I can relate to their predicament. Nicely timed.

A wonderful set Henry. Good to remind us that going to interesting places, having an eye for interesting things, interacting with your subjects when necessary, and understanding your gear wins every time! :) Reminds me to agonise less over the gear and more about what is in the frame.
Nex 5, Nex 6 (IR), A7M2, A99 and a bunch of lenses.

I somehow get some pleasure (maybe even a perverse pleasure) out of bucking the trend in going for bigger sensors, more and more and more resolution, and chasing every little minute IQ improvement. :lol: I use my G16 now sometimes and take it out on walks and through daily life when I don't want to carry the somewhat larger m4/3 gear. As I said, this G16 is in so many ways better than what most of the Magnum photos at the big exhibition were taken with. Fast zoom lens, changeable ISO, good ISO into territory that those guys could never have even dreamed of, image stabilization, pretty robust camera with pretty snappy operation, no bulky film to carry around, etc..

That what I call the photography. I'm not really like of B/W photo, but here we have true photo as it should be. Thank you Henry!

I've got a Sony A57, an Olympus E-30 (only because of the 12-60 lens which is superb) and a Leica Digilux 2 charged up and ready to shoot.
And I would quite happily exchange the Sony and the Olympus for a Minolta 7D (with the sensor replaced) for some of the criteria you state. The Leica for walk-about and the 7D for when I need different lenses. I don't need the fancy options available with new cameras. and I find that less than 6 billion pixels is more than adequate. From the Leica or from a 7D I can print at A4 which is adequate.
Well done in keeking the "small sensor" thread alive!

I put a few color photos also in that digicam album, but when I made the album I was mostly in the mood for B&W. :) Throughout my regular albums there are tons of color photos taken with all kinds of cameras, including digicams.

Ad to conversation:
Shoot today, "old lady" - A300 with 55-200, has received a lot of fun. :)
Specially - is to control the camera and color. Everything in the right place and all the great parammetry camera switches, and all conveniently.
