Challenge has finished
All of us tend to look for ever costlier equipment. This challenge shall show how advanced standard equipment has become. To start with let's restict to compact cameras (and other mobile equipment; not changeable lens) up to approximate 400g. This is a beginners challenge. We want to learn - please comment the pictures! Please be creative! Since many small lenses perform best very near I expect a lot of macro shots. If this challenge gets full I intend to follow up with a macro-excluded round.
