I've been reading this section of the forum for several weeks now. What a fine place to spend some time. I've learned a lot -- not just about cameras, but about the how and why of photography.
The photos from Lili and Mitch are an especially good kick-in-the-seat to motivate me to get out and take more pictures. If Lili and Mitch can transform ordinary scenes into extraordinary photos, there's hope for those of us who live and work in less-than-picturesque settings.
Here are some of the photos that I've taken with various small sensor cameras -- mostly point-and-shoot models.
All the cameras listed above were on temporary loan, except for the Canon G1.
I recently purchased a Ricoh GR Digital II (partly based on Mitch's photos) and hope to explore its capabilities soon. I'm excited about the extreme DOF that's possible when you combine a small sensor with a relatively fast wide-angle lens.
