Thanks for posting. I thought the A300 was a DSLR though. Wasn't it? I am not up on all the various Sony cameras. Was it a digicam with a tiny sensor? No problem either way though. :)

Of course not! :) I just continue conversation started by Cogito about Minolta 7D. A300 it's direct modification form Minolta. Sorry. For small tiny sensor I have only my cellphone. So far it works too. :)

As I said, no problem. I was just wondering. Good for people to post photos of any kind. Those are nice!

I added EXIF info to the top of each image page with camera, date, exposure info, etc. info since for this gallery it is relevant.

Radical Transformation: Magnum Photos into the Digital Age

viewtopic.php?f=52&t=7965

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..


Yes, the Canon G16 with the 1/1.7" 12mp sensor, 28-140mm f1.8-2.8 lens, sturdy construction, pretty fast AF, etc. would have been a fantasy camera for some of the photographers that took many of the famous, classic photos we know.
