    It seems I'm one of the only ones here who doesn't own a DSLR. I want to, but it all seems so complicated... and a bit soon in my photography career to figure out an SLR. :p

    So for now I'm sticking with a Kodak Easyshare Z612, and hopefully soon a FujiFilm FinePix. S5200. For those of you with point and shoots, care to share your favorite photos taken with them? I'd like some encouragement that cheap[er] P&S cameras can still take very good quality photographs.


    All taken with my Kodak Easyshare Z612:

    (Oh, and some people don't qualify cameras with long lenses as point and shoots. What I mean is, anything digital that doesn't have removable lenses.)

    some here are nice indeed :)

    does it mean that those with point and shoots should post in your thread? ... I did use p&s of the worst kind some time ago, I mean a camera several leagues below yours, and not all images are rubbish

    I already posted this once. This image was taken 2 years ago with a very poor and old digital p&s (already at the time taking the images), which my father got as a free item alongside som purchase he made in an electronics store. some postprocessing applied, but not too bad for the camera I'd say.

    Thanks. :) I only posted my 'best', but that's not saying a lot. I really do need to upgrade cameras soon.

    Sure, if anyone wants to. ;)

    I know that all p&s images aren't horrible; but the majority of them are far worse than similar photos taken with an SLR. I have seen some very nice point and shoot photos (for instance, with the canon powershot) though, so you never know! :)

    ^^I really like that photo; nice job. The sky is brilliant; although you can definitely tell the whole image had some processing done to it. But still; not bad at all for a point and shoot!

    I don't have an SLR! I sure wish I did, but P&S's aren't so terrible. Here's a few of mine..

    This was taken with my first camera ever, a Samsung something-or-other film point & shoot. It's still one of my favorite photos.

    Far too much is made on forums these days of which camera is better than another - particularly the P&S vs DSLR debate. I've seen dreadful images posted from both & excellent images posted from both, a good photograph is a good photograph, regardless of camera !!

    Here's a couple from my NON DSLR:

    This was taken with an old Fuji p&s.

    This was my seat at Belle Vue, the old home of Doncaster Rovers. I sat here week in, week out for 17years.

    If you look above each seat you can see the outlines of the people who'd sat there since 1922 and have wornaway at the paint.

    Although it's not very good this is quite possibly my favourite photo. I'm looking for ways to improve it so would it be ok to submit it to the critique forum as well?

    Last year I made a calendar for myself (couldnt' find anything I liked). All the shot below were taken with my Nikon CoolPix 5700.

    Here are the images I took, edited and used in the calendar (well, my favorites at least--there were a couple more I used as well):

    And, not from the calendar, but a pic I took and had hanging above the bed in our bedroom (along with 4 others, but this is my fav). From the dozen roses I got for my b-day last year:
