Using A Compact Camera?

It’s time for another little challenge!

I have a decent little collection of cameras at home, ranging from very old film cameras from around the world, to small compact cameras that fit in your pocket, to my current DSLR (Canon 7D Mk ii).

I decided to take one of the tiny compact cameras out for a spin! I keep being tempted to call it a point-and-shoot camera, but this one does have manual mode. So I still have control over the settings and am not letting the camera make decisions for me. I was using the Canon S120.

However, using such a tiny camera was definitely a challenge! Getting used to looking at the screen rather than a viewfinder, having to touch the screen to focus and fire the shutter, and not being able to take multiple shots in a row… all very different from my usual DSLR!

But Azalea was a wonderful and patient model while I fiddled with this little camera, and I think these photos are pretty adorable! The field of view was also wider than I’m used to with my lenses, so the photos have a different look to them than my usual work. :)

What do you think of ‘em?
