canon powershot SX100 IS

Photos from 2008 and later


Positive : great zoom, high resolution, and has the functions I need (manual mode, macro, spot metering), up to 15s exposure).

Negative sides : lack of view finder and greedy in battery power. Lacks a sliding cover like the Olympus, which provided very good protection against shocks and dust. Bulky but still a fair compromise with regards to the zoom.


Samsung Digimax S800

optical zoom 3x

spot metering,

All photos from 2006 - 2007.

Positive : easy to use, high resolution, and has the functions I need (manual mode, macro, spot metering), up to 4 s exposure).

Negative sides : lack of view finder and greedy in battery power. Lacks a sliding cover like the Olympus, which provided very good protection against shocks and dust. Low light shots noisy at 400 ASA. Failed after 1 and 1/2 year due to "contamination".


Olympus Mju II

compact film camera
lens : 35 mm 1:2.8
exposure up to 4 seconds
spot metering, night scene

Olympus muj II

All photos from 2000 to 2006 and a few in 2008

Small compact and absolutely wonderful camera. Very good optics and a minimum set of options (incl. spot metering and night scene). It never failed me in 6 years. A jewel...!

I always use print film (not slide) and after 2001, I started having all photos processed on CD rather than paper.


Pentax or Minolta SLR   All photos from 1990-2000 were taken with a fillm SLR camera. More control but too heavy and too bulky for travelling.
