This advice was always in the photo magazines of yore. Yore is a time before computers and the internet, when the writers were skilled professional photographers who could turn a word or two into entertaining text. People like Kevin MacDonnell, one of my favourites. A keen and mischievous style, but he knew what photography was about. I digress.

The problem has always been that there was no really good and really pocketable film camera. I tried the Rollei 35 series, but they have no rangefinder and I'm really bad at judging distances. I tried the Olympus XA, but it doesn't take filters. I tried a Minolta sub-miniature, but the results were abysmal.

Happily, in the digital age we now have a myriad of dazzling and attractive, truly compact cameras. It's enough to make the eyes glow with delight and the wallet (or purse) shriek in terror. And still they release more, better, smaller, bigger, heavier, lighter, you name it, whatever you want is there.

Back on Planet Earth the compact camera is a really useful tool for just mundane day-to-day recordning. Here's a shot of a repair at the club, shot so it can go in the committee section of the club website. Everyone is informed and can see what exactly has been done.
Practical, useful and I just love this digital photography on so many levels! Smile
