I have begun posting images from my latest acquisition, a second-hand Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZX1 / ZR1 point'n'shoot pocket camera. I am using 16:9 format, so resolution is reduced to 9MP. I cost $14.99 at a local thrift store. I limit ISO to Auto800 max. It's specs are in equipment listings on ePhotozine: https://www.ephotozine.com/equipment/item/panasonic-lumix-dmc-zx1-2812
Older photos (of Europe) were taken with my ($7 Cdn) Fujifilm Finepix F100fd point'n'shoot.

Interesting article on the future of photography.

Have been conflicted about the use of the photo-capable equipment I now own. My Sony SLT, several point'n'shoot cameras and my Asus dual-lens Zenfone cell. The Zenfone is getting more and more use as it is carried 24/7; the Sony the least due to it's size and weight. The P'n'S are used on escorted tours, such as cruises. Still love the images shot by an APS-C camera, but learning to accept the images produced by whatever I carry. So reading the following confirmed what I am beginniong to believe. Smaller and easier is doing the same for photography as MP3 did for music, not that I'm totally pleased by it.
