    I was inspired by Antonio's recent Paris post to look up my last trip to this wonderful city.

    My camera was a tiny Canon Digital Ixus. If I recall correctly, the CF cards I had were something ridiculous....like.....250k or 500k

    The files were very forgiving and I stretched them incredibly hard in LR5 to get what I wanted from the originals.

    The full set; if interested.....is here http://flic.kr/s/aHsjPtQWoi

    Like most of us, I have had a whole series of digital cameras, including three or four Canon Ixus. When I look at the pictures I took with some very old (which now means five-ten years or so) cameras, what surprises me is their quality - in a good sense. As long as you did no venture far from ISO 100, these cameras were pretty good. Apart from this ISO limitation, which was really not so important if you came from slide film, most of the compact cameras were slightly slow to focus and fire, and they never had a viewfinder worth its name, if at all.

    I really like the one with the pigeon. Good timing.

    I know that they're a bit crunchy and all but how good do those b&ws look? Very nice.
