|I thought this piece of "permanent architectural adverting" was worth some digital film ... Canon A590, cropped from roughly half original picure (just TOO many bricks!) Lens would have been set at around 100mm equivalent on a full frame camera. At its longest zoom setting the sharpness falls away noticeably.
I actually use this little camera to record old documents that can't be photocopied, in archives and libraries, but it doubles as a general snap-camera when I'm travelling away from home. Unlike most modern P&S cameras it does have a viewfinder, even though it's not particularly good.
Equipment: Pentax DSLR for casual shooting, Lumix G1 and Fuji XE-1 for playing with old lenses, and Leica M8 because I still like the optical rangefinder system.
