I settle the camera debate

Right, that post title is worth a laugh!

I guess the first question would be which camera debate I am even talking about.  In this case, I would be referring to the point and shoot vs. DSLR debate.  In this case the point and shoot wins, literally:

ISO 800 14mm 0ev f/5 1/60

ISO 800 14mm 0ev f/5 1/60

This photo, which I took with my Canon Powershot ELPH, won an honorable mention at my camera club nature competition last week.  I had considered attempting to get the shot with my Canon 50D, but it actually would not fit in this space to get a photo, so I switched to my point and shoot and got this photo.

This photo has been cropped.  The idea behind the nature category at my photo club is to leave the editing to a minimum and tell a nature story.  This photo is part of a story that unfolded in this nest this past spring. Other images from the story are here.

So, there you have it, the camera debate settled, point and shoot is better.  Well, in this case anyway!  Thoughts, comments? feel free to leave them below.

    I always say the best camera is the one you have and I’ve seen some gorgeous point and shoot photo’s for sure and this one is a winner in my eyes as well PJB. Great job hon! 😀 *hugs*


  2. Beautiful shot! And I subscribe to the view that whatever camera you have in your hand is the right one…..but, of course it does depend very much on what you want to do with your images as to size etc, do you prefer to shoot RAW etc which will govern your preference for a particular camera in the general run of things.
