One shouldn’t underestimate compact cameras

Unexperienced photo lovers tend to tremendously underestimate any camera smaller than a (D)SLR. The photo gadget has to be huge, offer vast expandability and have at least a good dozen buttons and dials. Old hands know that it is the photographer who takes the picture and have a more pragmatic way of thinking about equipment. The old saying, that the best camera is the one that you have with you, is well justified. Nowadays smartphones fill this role, but for me that is not enough. I rather put up with a bit more weight and size than to compromise on image quality, manual controls, depth of field control and features. My best camera, which I always have with me, is the DP2M. Although I also have a DP3M, SD1M and many Sigma lenses, I almost always take the DP2M along. I take that camera with me even when I’m not in the mood or when I don’t plan on taking pictures. Experience shows that photo opportunities present themselves when one least expects it. 😉
