Anyone interested in a Point & Shoot SC? My grandaughter lost my beloved $30, pawn shop special Powershot A530 in a museum, and I have since replaced it with another pawn shop special, a Lumix DMC-LZ10. It has not been properly broken in yet. Let's show what can be done with inexpensive consumer grade cameras.
Here is the P&S thread from last year, for anyone interested.

I'll start a posting thread when the new month starts.

I'm interested, but I don't know how much time I have to commit. Probably same P&S Casio Exilim EX-V8SR and an iPhone4 (recently upgraded my phone - 5mp).
10/15/2010 02:30:34 PM · #3
could be fun, I'll give it a try.

Is S3 IS P&S? ;-)

Or would I have to use the Olympus or borrow ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Isaac's A80?

I'd call the S3 IS a point and shoot. I'd say if it has a small sensor, non-interchangeable lens and shoots JPG, then it's a P&S.

I'm in - just got a secondhand LX3 and want to play!
10/15/2010 06:28:39 PM · #7
Count me in, I could do with getting reacquainted with my lx3
10/15/2010 07:40:38 PM · #8
I enjoy point & shoot, please count me in.
10/15/2010 09:39:15 PM · #9
Count me in as well. My wife has a Canon S95 that I haven't played with yet.
10/15/2010 09:58:53 PM · #10
I'll play with my Fuji HS10. Do we have to shoot jpeg? This baby shoots RAW though I could get acquainted with the in camera settings for jpeg images. ;o)

If you consider it a P&S, that's fine with me. I was simply defining earlier what I personally consider to be a P&S. My personal concept is the consumer grade cameras than non-enthusiasts tend to buy. But no hard and fast rules, this is only a side challenge, after all.
10/15/2010 10:15:39 PM · #12
Have had zero time for challenges, but willing to give this a go!
I am using a Canon G9, Panasonic DMC-Z7S, and perhaps my LG Ally.
Is this a daily entry or a whenever side challenge?
10/15/2010 10:36:50 PM · #13
However often you want to post.
10/16/2010 01:37:58 AM · #14
Umm... would you allow a point & shoot film camera in this group??
10/16/2010 04:42:56 AM · #15
What about one that shoots in infrared? I have a Fuji F31fd converted to shoot in IR. Shot this one out of an airplane window on a flight to Denver last week. I have a lot of pics from the trip to edit through yet but this could get me out shooting more.

Good question. I have a couple of converted G10s I can use as well.

Why not? Reminds me that I have some developed negatives from my binocular camera that I have not scanned yet.

If you consider it a P&S.

I would like to play....I have a Panasonic LX3
10/16/2010 12:40:52 PM · #20
I'd like to join. I use my P&S cameras (mostly the PowerShot SX1 IS and my iPhone 3G) more often than my DSLR, because they are handy and versatile.
10/16/2010 12:56:57 PM · #21
Last week I won a Fujifilm Finepix AX250 taking part in a photo contest. Yesterday I received it so I'd like to play.
10/16/2010 07:51:13 PM · #22
Very nice gadion! Congrats :)
10/16/2010 08:42:26 PM · #23
My work is going to be keeping me busy in Nov, but I will be happy to jump in on weekends.
I keep an A920 Fuji with me all the time, and use it a lot for grab shots, and for copying information and nameplate data at work. I promise to refrain from posting any nameplate shots.
10/17/2010 11:55:34 AM · #24
Tempting! My good old Powershot S70 is still working, I even enter challenges with it :) I'll give it a try!
10/22/2010 02:19:26 AM · #25
I only possess P&S cameras so I'd love to join in.
