    They laugh at you? Then they don't know what this hobby is about.
    Anyway, a guy shooting with a $100 point & shoot cam may have a fortune but he need not show off. Tell the photo-snobs to get lost.

    anyways, jokes aside, i would like to point out that there should be a middle ground. the main reason why terry richardson makes statements like "the image quality is just as good as the big fancy cameras", is that in film cameras, IQ is not so vastly different, since your "sensor" is the one that matters, and the film you load into yashica t4 can the same film used in expensive film slr.

    it is also worth noting that the yashica t4 uses a 35mm f/3.5 carl zeiss lens that is touted to be very sharp.

    so as much as we want to say, oh, he can shoot pirelli calendar with a P&S, P&S are different as well. image quality is not important at web size, but for commercial work, you need a certain level of IQ, no one wants to see a calendar filled with nothing but grainy girlz.

    ...he must have a FIRM grip, for an old man, on his FIRM camera, which probably belongs to his old FIRM.

    Looked like Terry might not have used a P&S to shoot the Pirelli calendar.



    Let me know if you need translation.

    Anybody uses NASA-grade camera (which can focus on subjects millions of kilometers away) for model shoots?

    honestly, no.

    despite many saying the camera isn't important, but the photographer, i feel both plays an important part.

    take a look at what lawrence kim does with a canon G11 here

    you lack of self confidence my friend!

    even mobile phones can produce brilliant work....

    take a look at this guy, anurag's work with LX3 and totally put many DSLR and SLR user to shame...

    cheers mate and no matter what camera you use, the person behind the viewfinder matter most..

    A good picture doesnt only depend on how great its resolution is, but also it's composition which I think is very very important. Dslr gives the extra control to produce certain effects. Other than that, a compact camera will work just fine.

    I remember there was one time where I was using a PnS (without Manual mode) in a shoot while my shooting buddies were using FF + primes that day.

    Oh well I guess I had to live with what I have that time and basically spend more time to PP my shots in a later stage.

    on't worry too much bro. Just bring your cam and shoot like nobodys business. People bring lomos, rangefinders, hp cams, etc to shoots from time to time. Even for myself, if I attend my pals shoots, or take snapshots, I will bring my old Ixus 400 as well.

    You laughed at me because I'm different, I laugh back at you because you're all the same

    In any case, the S90 does produce great output that can rival the first few generations of DSLRs.... so you should be proud. Know what a PnS is good at and go from there. (e.g. great DOF at low aperture values, nothing much to fiddle if you dont want to, small and friendly - does not intimidate non seasoned subjects so that they do not try too hard to pose, and in the case of your S90 - a dial that can change the white balance - opens up lots of room for creativity...)
