Ooooo!!!  From the Pocket P&S

Ooooo!!! From the "Pocket" P&S

While I'm doing my manual thing with an oversized Pro camera body and a lens heavy enough to qualify as a workout, I often envy others who shoot with their "easy" pocket cameras http://www.pbase.com/britestar/image/116508338
Today remembering my own waterproof, pocket camera - that I normally only use when it's pouring rain or in an otherwise wet situation - I decided to try it with a butterfly.
Hum. Although the resulting image may not be the same quality as one from my "big" cameras and shooting RAW, it's not bad.

I probably should keep this camera in my handbag. It's certainly easier to carry for impulse shots than any of my DSLR's. It's even easier than the bridge camera.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS1
1/30s f/3.3 at 4.9mm iso100 full exif
