Oh, I didn't know that, I had to overlooked the forum. Thank you once more.


BTW. Toy cameras are not for night photos (pic.1), but if one think it may get like the other one (pic.2).

I disagree. A decent light source will allow toy cameras to work just fine for night shots. Olympus XZ-1

Ma'am, Olympus XZ-1 camera is not a "toy"! Contrary to the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LS80 I'm using.

Nevertheless you touched interesting point of view. My real toy cameras are/were very capricious, I've never known why they, especially Panasonic, it selects some settings and "open" itself for night shoots. Forget those Scene Mode. Panasonic gives images with fine grain in good light but in shadows and bigger and bigger color grain from 200 to 400 ISO. So photographing in the night is a lottery, for me at least with that camera.

On the other hand such a toy may be a nice tool for testing night compositions. Of course, I had to help yourself with GIMP, then and today. Two images from living room window were taken few years ago and they had been corrected then. The one with road zebra was shot from kitchen, but I had to straightened up whole composition. All enhanced shots together with ful size and downsized siblings were placed in the Nights in My Eyes Album on Yandex Disk.

See yourselves how far behind Pentax lenses and its DSLRs. One cannot results from Zero.

If you want to compare night pictures with their versions, run through
A Study on Night Shots album from Yandex Disk.

Best regards

P.S. I've corrected address to Yandex album.

Not all, of course, just another two of them.

Best regards

P.S. Sometimes "toy" cameras can, but when and how it's unpredictable.

Learning Thru Trying

No matter what one's using camera during the first learning years. Even grown up shooters jump back to the Past to check how to "it was"far, far away in Time.
I'm still standing in the nice period named Back to the Future. Someday maybe.

But I did not find out my unique types of shots. Just like others, I'm still searching for what would please me above other photo pleasures. In other words it's highly probably that I will never ever be one type shooter. Too much wonderful subjects around me which beg to be shot.

Here are few latest uploads.

My best regards

A Study in Black

It doesn't mean Black & White. I roamed that path some days. Not having flash lamps, but "special" magnifying glass and LED torch and two sources of light bulb flashlights (they give yellow light) I'm using high noon Sun rays. They are so strong that camera dims background to 98% blackness. Only one caveat - you should shoot close to window as Sun is high on the sky. Window highly makes efficient directional floodlight. Let's see. Of course I had to touch the shots with GIMP's paintbrush.

My best regards

Nice looking images, veraser.

I might be looking for a nicer p&s one of these days. My beloved Fuji X10 met a premature death, so I've been using old Canon Powershots. Here's one from a few years ago - SD1100 IS
