    That. Is. Awesome. I love stuff like that. Reports are it captures good images if you have enough light for f/8 and I see nothing here to dispute that. I really should buy one.

    even in fairly subdued light it can do well

    Well, I just put my money where my mouth is and ordered one. $49 at B&H. Good stuff.

    As I mentioned on mu-43, the first shot looks two dimensional to me, like a painted Hollywood set. The second is just the kind of thing I like to do and do frequently, especially with small unassuming photo tools.
