You’re getting some great pictures. What kind of camera do you use?

It’s a real old Canon Digital Rebel — on its last legs now, giving me lots of blurry pics.

It may be old, but you’ve gotten some solid material with it…

I’ve gotten some of my best pictures with a little Sony Cybershot. People can get pretty touchy about pictures sometimes and a big camera and lens can make that situation worse. By contrast, the Sony is so small that people often don’t notice it.

Also, it is completely silent. So, I can casually place it on a table or in my hand and be snapping away and pretend like my mind is a million miles away. People have no idea they’re being photographed.

Oh, and the memory card is really easy to pop out in a hurry. So, when challenged, I have more than once presented a camera with no memory card as “proof” that I did not photography anything controversial.
